Tim Holtz Style

Over at Stamp N Show this week they are challenging us to make a project using a Tim Holtz tecnique. Well I love love that guy and all his GRANDE creativity and have tons of his product but then I wonder (after making something) what went wrong? :)I started with vanilla cardstock- I stamped the old car with versamark and heat embossed with clear powerder and then did some ink resist with honey and shabby shutter. I then stamped some random images. Now for the fun technique of etched glass. I took one of the clear fragments and sanded one side. I then stamped the arrow on it with versamark, covered with clear embossing powder and then heat embossed. Be careful, the fragments will melt (wink). When done- it appears to be etched glass! It was fun, it was simple and I can't wait to experiment more with some other stamps! Give it a try!
