Hero Arts, Creative Corner, Tim Holtz Technique

Yee gads - photo editing gone wrong - must work on my skills - the card is really more the colors of the 2nd picture.

On Creative Corner this week - the challenge - is to use your favorite Tim Holtz technique - well how can you pick a favorite - but I chose to use this one - I wanted a soft colored card to send to a friend's Mom who just had surgery.  I used the paint resist technique.  I painted (inked) up my background stamp (Hero Arts) with Adirondack paint dabber (pearl metallic) and stamped on white paper.  Let dry.  I then rubbed Distress Ink (broken china) over the card.  I also just stamped the butterfly on a separate piece of paper and colored with distress ink.  I cut out the butterfly.

A little matting, the addition of a wonderful SRM Sticker and some colored tape (wonderfully given to me by a friend) and a little bling complete the card.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Hello Barb
You have used the paint resist technique wonderfully on your butterfly, and the card has clean lines with a lovely colour palette.
Thank you so very much for joining us this week at OCC we are so pleased to see your work.

Love the way the pearl metallic paint dabber works as a resist. You definitely achieved the soft look here - the shade of blue is lovely and your ribbon and sentiment are perfect! So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Our Creative Corner.
