When I was ill and on the sofa this week , I spent most of Tuesday watching the Craft Day on QVC. I loved seeing all the upcoming trends from the States and was captivated by Tim Holtz's demos. I have several distress ink pads and a few other Tim Holtz bits and pieces which I use in my projects but have never tried the 'proper' techniques he uses.
I treated myself to the Special Value kit they had on offer and it arrived Friday. Yesterday I had a go at blending alcohol inks and stamping on the backgrounds I created and made 5 cards quite quickly.
The red card is the second card I made and the butterfly card is the last one. I will show the others another day. It was so much fun trying something new and I will definitely get my inks out again and have another play. It was also refreshing looking through my stash and seeing how I could use the bits I already have in a different way.
I am entering both of these cards into the Ginger Snaps colour Challenge which is 'Jewel colours with gold'. My Friend Petra is on the Design Team and she is the master of distress and altered art, I am always in awe of the beautiful designs she creates!
Have a good Sunday.
