Blast from the Past
Tim Holtz. I wasn't even sure I could make them work together. I created this card for the Compendium of Curiosities II challenge which was distress markers from p. 50 of Tim's Book. My card mostly shows the stamping with distress markers that Tim described. Everything stamped was done using this technique. The heart was die cut from grungeboard and then colored using the watercoloring technique. Although it's a little hard to see on the scan, I used tissue tape across the background to frame the 2nd stamp. After coloring the heart, I covered it with rock candy distress dry glitter. I believe that this is the first glitter that I can say I really love. I don't feel that I will be wearing it for weeks after using it, and the effects on artwork are so wonderful.
