Hello my crafty friends. My offering today is an all Tim Holtz affair. This card will be winding itself to a very lovely lady as a belated birthday card.
I started with a piece of ivory card and I brushed all the new distress inks across it. I squidged some ink onto my glass mat and used a wide damp brush to pick colour up.
Next I inked the background number stamp with fossilized amber and twisted citron. I held it in my hand and stamped all over haphazardly, but covering the whole background.
Using a small pointed brush i added a bit more water to ink and flicked all over background. I used abandoned coral, mermaid lagoon and cracked pistachio.
I dried it thoroughly and stamped the sentiment in black archival and heat embossed with clear powder. The crown got the same treatment.
Then I added the argyle stamp to two corners in black archival. The rest of the stamps are in watering can.
On a separate piece of card I stamped the swallow tail butterfly in black archival and heat embossed in clear. I coloured it with the same distress inks and a damp brush.
I then fussy cut it and shaped it and attached it to background.
I inked the edges with frayed burlap and gathered twigs.
I matted on black and attached to Kraft card.
So that is my card which I hope the recipient will like, Theresa xx.
