A Tim Holtz Technique

Simon Says A Tim Holtz Technique this week so , like everybody else, I suppose it was a case of which one.
I don't do many alcohol inky things ( probably because I don't have many inks! ) so I thought I'd do this to make a change for me.



I know Tim uses a can of compressed air but I had to make do with a trusty straw. I have three blues...Denim,Cloudy Blue & Sail Boat Blue (Blue's my favourite colour can you tell!! ) then I added Butterscotch.



I used the words from the Stampers Anonymous " Good Thoughts " and the splatter butterfly from "Urban Chic". After stamping the butterfly directly onto the background with Stazon, I then stamped & cut out a couple more to sit on top.

Hello! I LOVE your alcohol inked tag! You did the compressed air can technique to perfection! Wow! I love the colors you chose to use as your background. Love the butterfly stamped images and how you popped a couple of them using white paper...which perfectly coordinates with the little plaquette and your sentiment! Beautiful job! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy

What a great tag, the colours you've chosen are so bright and bold, and they work so well together! The Design Team are really pleased that you joined us for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week - Thank you!
