Good morning! Easter is just a few days away, and I'm finally finishing my cards. I made this one for my sister and brother in law using lots of Tim Holtz products and in the style of Tim.
For my background, I used Ranger's glossy paper, alcohol inks and Distress ink and Distressing tool to finish the edges. I embossed the inked background with Tim's Honeycomb Texture Fade and swiped on some metallic rubs over the raised areas.
I cut 3 tags from Tim's Tiny Tags Bigz die from scrap paper, inked with Tumbled Glass Distress ink, gave it some tiny droplets using Tim's Spritz and Flick technique (not visible in the shots, I'm afraid), and stamped with Tim's Mini blueprints stamps in Archival ink. I used a Remnant Rub on one of them for my sentiment and to give it balance. I used a Distress marker to color the word blocks. I inked the edges in Distress ink.
I stamped a second set of the same blueprints on Tim's water color paper, and colored them with Distress markers and inks and Tim's water brush. When dry I spritzed with Perfect Pearl mist. I cut the images out, edged with more DI, and popped them up off the tags with foam tape. I added some fibers to the tags and attached them to the background with foam tape.
What a simple, fun card to make! Lot's of Tim's products and lot's of Tim influence on it! Thank you for stopping by today, and leaving all your wonderful comments! I read and appreciate them all! Eventually, I respond to each one; I'm a little behind right now, with all the crafting and gardening I've been doing! Hugs and wishes for a Blessed Easter!
