Tim Holtz Inspired Cards
I happened to be home last week with sick kids and the puppy - recovering from surgery for a lost tooth and I tuned into the Carol Duvall Show on HGTV
This show featured Tim Holtz and demonstrated how to use your stamps to make a "watercolor" image. His example was SO beautiful, I had to try it for myself. I used a stamp set that I got from Michaels that is a large butterfly. It was a clear stamp set that was on clearance. I really liked the way it turned out. The card on the left was done in pinks and purples - I used SU! markers for the ink instead of ink pads like Tim used in the episode. The saying stamp is from the retired SU! set - all I have seen. Below are two more cards that I have done using this technique...
I scanned the images instead of photographing them. Next time I will try photographing them.
