Today's Make n Take at Archivers was a technique demonstrating some Tim Holtz products, using clear embossing powder to create a resist and his new stains on Kraft paper. I absolutely love his work, though sometimes have problems including it into my style. I took a class when he visited St.Louis, MO a couple of years ago and we altered a canvas. Well, I was also lucky enough to recieve the demo canvas he created for the class and he autographed it. Maybe I will take some pictures of it tomorrow for my blog.
I challenged myself to use this make in take on something, so I decided on this card. Just added the twine. I hope you like!
And of course I had to by some more Tim Holtz to recreate some more.......

I had a lot of time last weekend...too much time, because I watched some videos on you tube for some new inspiring techniques and then I went shopping. I found these really cool PEARL PENS by Viva Decor at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design They keep their shape and make perfect circles and domes. I also watched a technique from Jennifer McGuire on youtube using alcohol inks on glossy paper....WELL this is what I came up with. Turned out very cute.
Here is a closer look at the use of the pearl pens. I used a flourish stamp from Fancy Pants using Versamark ink as a guide and then used a black pearl pen to make the design. The pink glitter is a Stickles used very thick to mimic jewels.
