As it's holiday week still I was having a play yesterday - made quite a mess actually and distressed myself with the ink too, (it's only just washed off) and this is the result!! It's a large 8x8 card which I am sending to a young lady in the USA who has MS. I've had all the 'stuff ' for making this type of card for ages but have never really had a proper go with it. I love Tim Holtz products (I've got quite a few actually) but haven't made anything from them - I look a lot and then put it all away again! Anyway I thought you might like to see my latest effort. I shall try and describe how I made it now!
I started with a sheet of My Mind's Eye paper and distressed the edge with Antique Linen ink. I then stamped over it using 3 different stamps and Vintage Photo ink. I brushed Heritage Gold perfect pearls over the whole sheet and it stuck to the inky bits. The cherub was stamped in black archival ink, clear embossed and coloured with distress ink and stickles. I over stamped some more flourishes and clear embossed these too to add texture. Finally I went around the edge of the sheet again with Vintage Photo.Tag
