I have finally these past few days managed to cut and use some papers from my new Tim Holtz Wallpaper stack. I have noticed a few like minded folk in blogland, who like me prefer to keep them a while to gaze at are also using theirs. These papers alone are inspirational and do not need a lot thought on how to use them.
But they definitely for me needed a bit of distressing round the edges, and a touch of Vintage Photo distress ink. I have to admit that is is my most used of Tim's tips and influences, I use it in practically all my craft work..
I used one of Tim's new trellis die cuts, this is going to be so useful in future.
For the flowers I used the Tatty flower garland Alterations die cut strip. After assembling my flowers I scrunched them up a little and sprayed them with water, another one of Tims super techniques.
Peeling back the flowers when they had dried out, I touched round the outer edges of the petal with a little Fired brick distress ink.
I made this card with the new Challenge over at A Vintage Journey in mind, it is 'Spring Flowers'.
This challenge encourages us to use the ideas and be inspired by Tim Holtz. I think I may have managed that.
Thank you for stopping by to take a look, the comments you leave are always appreciated.
