The theme this week? Anything Goes! Always a big hit. :) As well, the DT used Tim Holtz goodies on our creations. So if you have any Tim Holtz products (who doesn't?!), then please show us - we'd love to see you use them, too! But if not, it's aaallllll right... you can still participate in the challenge! :)
Anyway, on to my card:
Distress Ink colors (Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, and Peeled Paint), and randomly smooshed (totally a word) the ink pads directly on to my Craft Sheet. I then misted them with water, and placed a piece of glossy card stock glossy side down on to the pooled ink. Lift up, and you have this gorgeous marble effect! I gave it a quick blast with my heat tool (shorten drying time) and matted it on to Chipped Sapphire-inked card stock. I used the dotted image from the Psychedelic Grunge stamp set and stamped with plain ol' water, resulting in this cool bleached look. My fave Distress Ink technique ever. I use it a lot. :) The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp exclusive set HERE, and was heat embossed. Because of the organic feel of the main panel, I decided to leave some of the stray EP instead of brushing it all away... and I love how it looks! A sprinkling of sparkly gemstones (found HERE and HERE) in graduating sizes mimics the dots in the image.
And now it's your turn! Create a project (anything goes, remember!) and link it up HERE before 8am EST US next Wednesday (the 6th), and you'll be in the drawing for an amazingly generous gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store!
HERE to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with Timmy's products! :)
Thank you for reading... be back soon!
