This week at Our Creative Corner our hostess is the uber talented Linda Coughlin of The Funkie Junkie, and her challenge for us is:
Your favourite Tim Holtz Technique:For my card I used the Brushless Watercolour technique:
Whether you are a big fan of Tim Holtz or not, you can't deny that he has had an incredibly powerful impact on the paper crafting industry and it's a lot of fun to try out some of his techniques. Check out his blog and the Ranger blog for all sorts of step by steps and demos on dozens of techniques. What's your favorite Tim Holtz technique?
This is a simple technique, basically all you do is stamp your stamp with various inks (distress inks are best because they react with water), spritz your stamp with water and stamp ... I have used watercolour paper here.
Once I had created the pretty watercoloured flower I was kind of at a loss as to what to do with it ... I was then inspired by the talent of Jill Foster, she's just brilliant! I added some background stamping with the water and script stamps from SU French Foliage, and ink blended around the edge. I'm not sure the brand of this flower stamp, as I bought it from a garage sale!!!
Anyway, I hope that you'll join us .... it's fun, you'll get really inky and have a ball! Check out the DT's favourite techniques over at Our Creative Corner to really get you inspired!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
