Tim Holtz magic

Hi, how have you been? Sometimes it feels like ages before I get to post again. Our lives today seem to be so busy. I took time out from my juggling act to feed a bit of my creative side, with a class from Tim Holtz. It is an amazing class and I urge you all to do it ( I understand that you can still sign up and have access to the class) it is a great way to fit in a class when you are busy, and who better to teach you about Ranger and Distress products that the man himself.

The class is called : Creative Chemistry 101. and can be found here: http://www.onlinecardclasses.com/

The techniques are great so I thought I would put one of them into practice and make my sons birthday card.

 I did the technique on water colour paper and it came out with a great hessian type of texture.

The technique uses embossing powder, distress inks, permanent ink and sprinkling of water (only I think I drowned rather than sprinkled)

A first attempt, really like this technique so will be trying again, and again and again. Love the way the embossing pops right off the page :)

Need a lot of work to get it better, but happy with the results of this card.

Distress inks and stains, masks and stamps, lots of things to choose from.

And after doing the some of the classes, I have brought in the Dyan Reaveley sprays 'dylusions' also  a ranger product.  Fantastic depth of colour in these sprays!

have you been playing with any new techniques lately?

  3. I must get around to doing this class! I enjoyed having a look around your blog. I'm now following your blog :)

    Thanks for the comment left on my blog as part of the The Scrapbook Kitchen NSD blog hop. It is much appreciated and I will be drawing the winner later today along with a pic of what they have.

    If you were looking for the follow me button (it seemed to have disappeared) I have re-added it so those that want to can keep up with what I am up to. I'm not a post every day person, but I do post regularly.

    Thanks again for visiting my blog xxx
