Tim Holtz Distress Holiday 2022

Hi friends, you'll all know by now that the Tim Holtz Distress Holiday 2022 collection has been released and Tim will be sharing demos and lots of tips and tricks using the products on his YouTube Channel on 8 October at 9am PT, 12 noon ET and 5PM in the UK so make a note on your calendars. Once the all important swatching was out of the way, it was time to have some fun and I'm sharing cards I made using the Distress Mica Stains and Snowfall Grit Paste along with some favourite Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous stamps, Bold Tidings 2 and 3, Seasonal Scribble and Snowflakes Layering Stencil.

I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to create 2 - 4" x 5.1/4" panels. I stamped the sentiment stamps from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Bold Tidings 2 and 3, inked with Versamark ink and heat set with Simon Says Clear Embossing Powder. I applied Snowfall Grit Paste through Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Snowflakes Layering Stencil and set aside to dry.
I spritzed the panels with Salvaged Patina and Bundled Sage Distress Spray Stains
I spritzed the Bundled Sage panel with Cocktail Party and Fresh Balsam Distress Mica Stains, dried and spritzed with water to create the water droplet effect.
I repeated on the other panel using Shiny Bauble and Winter Frost Distress Mica Stains.
I dabbed the snowflakes with damp paper towel to remove the colour and used a dry cloth to remove the Mica Stain sitting on the embossed sentiments. I masked off the top of the embossed sentiments and stamped the images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Seasonal Scribbles, inked with Black Soot Distress Archival ink and added highlights using a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen.
To finish I matted the panels on to Simon Says Black cardstock and fixed to A2 white card blanks.

Have fun when your Distress Holiday 2022 goodies arrive. Hugs Kath xxx
