Getting Inky with Tim

Hi, guys!  Yesterday was Day 1 of the online card class being taught by Tim Holtz.  It was a blast and he is an amazing teacher.  I would highly recommend you check it out.  This first tag is what I made last night.

Tag: Ranger manila
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress ink and stains, Archival black
Other: Butterflies stamped using JudiKins Mica gloss
Stamps: Stampers Anonymous, River City Rubber Works

Today was Day 2 of the class and we really focused on Tim's line of distress inks.  I can't share how the techniques were done, but I can share my work.   We learned 3 fun and inky techniques.

Day 2 tags

Paper: Ranger Manila Tags, Watercolor paper
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress inks
Stamps: Stampin' Up, Papertrey Ink

This is going to be a great two weeks learning from such a great teacher.  I love that you can really feel his passion for his art and creating.    I look forward to sharing what I make as I go along.

I hope you have a great day!  Hope you can find a few moments in your day to do something you love.

What fun your tea & craft time must have been! I miss having our granddaughters closer - what fun we could have.

Thanks for commenting on my blog!

Love your butterfly tag! (After posting my tags that included the marbled stains one, I watched the video again....I'm going to try to follow exactly as Tim does to see if I get some better results. That spritzing with the mister is different than what I did.) Thank you for visiting! It's really an enjoyable class.
