Distressed Perfect Pearls

Sandy showed us a video of Tim Holtz’s technique and asked us to use it in this week’s SaWo challenge artwork. I found out a lot trying this out… my cardstock base is a bit dark; choosing Rust doesn’t show through too well; the cardstock was too smooth and the spritzed water became a waterfall! Still, I like this tag and pocket despite all that!!! I’m having one of those weeks I think!


The stamps are from: Diva Impressions (crows); Third Coast RS (Budgie in a top hat) and MaVinci (latin text).

Small art

Artygirlz, Crissi and Julie have asked us to make ‘small art’ this week and as I had been making weird Christmas cards earlier, I made an ATC for this challenge too. Another acetate-stamped Paperartsy mini!!


Different, innit?!! 😉


Gold is MMM’s theme this week… and here’s an ATC I made using one of Tim Holtz’s tag techniques for inspiration. The image is the sad angel from Cherry Pie and it’s stamped onto acetate which is coloured with alcohol inks, painted with white acrylic paint and mounted onto snowflake-embossed blue metallic cs. It’s a shame you can’t see the glimmer of gold in his wings, but it’s there!!
