I had great fun with this one.....lots of messy fingers getting down and dirty with Tim Holtz.....no patterned papers just inking some fabulous linen look card stock with Distress Inks....and a bit of overstamping....the bird image was stamped with Brushed Corduroy and embossed with Distress Embossing Powder....Faded Jeans and then painted over with watered down Stickles. I didn't have enough small buttons in the right colours.....so punched out small circles and added dots to create a button look and finished off with a bit of faux stitching.....great fun and makes me wonder why I need to have all these gorgeous papers.
And we have another fabulous prize for this week
October Afternoon.....Daydream Collection
beautiful papers...alphabets...die cut stickers and rubber charms
absolutely gorgeous and I'm afraid my photography doesn't do them justice
Sending big hugs to our lovely teamie Jacqui who has just become a Grandma again...a beautiful bouncing baby girl Sienna......congratulations Jacqui......how wonderful.....I bet you are on the ceiling.
So it's time for you to look out your Penny Blacks and see what you can create with the colour combo....can't wait to pay you all a visit...I know I will be in for such a treat.... happy crafting everyone.
Hugs Kath xxxxxxx
P.S. to answer Brenda's question about blending the Distress Inks.....the secret is to use Tim's blending tool and sponges and always start off with a circular motion on your craft sheet....slowly moving onto the card.
