Gotta LOVE Tim Holtz!

I love Tim Holtz! He is sooo talented and creative! Wish I had his imagination, but I am thankful that he has it so I can learn from him.
This is a card I created with the help of some of the
new Sizzix dies he designed. I love them all!!

I did some distressing on this card with Distress Inks from Ranger. I love using those inks. They blend together and you can do so much with them. If you have not seen Tim's new book called, "A Compendium of Curiosities " you HAVE to see this!!! It is awesome! He shows you so many techniques and step by step tutorials for his creations. Distress Inks are so versatile and he shows you many ways to use them. (FYI...Susie has this book in the store!!)

OK, so what did I use on this card? Glad you asked :)
Stamp: music notes (not sure of the company)
Tim Holtz dies: Filmstrip Frames and Tattered Florals
Silhouette (LOVE IT!!!): leaves and flourish
Distress Inks: Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo, Blue Jeans, Aged Mahogany
Misc: copper brad, Maya Mist (in silver plated), Perfect Pearls (Forever Blue) and Tim Holtz's GrungePaper.

Until later....Sharon

That is a stunning card. I see the filmstrip and serif/scroll dies are a must too. Oh well, a gal's got to buy what a gal's got to buy. Thanks for sharing this idea.
