I love playing with T!m Holtz

My wonderful friend sent me a box of goodies for my birthday and i've been dying to delve into them.  Not only that, I picked up some gorgeous Webster's Pages papers from the March Hobbycrafts show; never have I been so desperate to cut into some paper but also so reluctant!

I haven't crafted for me in so long now, it's quite depressing really.  I've thought about just giving it all up, it'd make my unpacking and arranging a lot easier.. and think of all the space!  There's just something in me that can't stop, i've always done this.. and I think I always will.

Anyway, here's the card I came up with, I'm very rusty so forgive me!

The image was coloured using Promarkers which I haven't had a dabble in for ages!

I lightly went over the image using Tim Holtz Cut 'N' Dry and Distress Ink, then used a finger to smudge in some neat perfect pearls.  For the edges, I added water to create a dark pearl paste and topped with crystal shavings.  The flowers were covered in shimering distress Stickles then topped with more crystal shavings for completely gorgeous, dew dropped florals; finishing with a light inking.

Hiya Mel

Rusty?? Nah!! This is stunning! Good luck with all the unpacking and make some time to have a play too. I know what you mean about having time to make thnings for yourself though, I had one of those urges a few weeks ago LOL!

Take care and look forward to more creations from you!
