a Tim Holtz Technique





this weeks challenge at......



hhhmmmmm.....a Tim Holtz technique....

For inspiration I pulled out my "A Compendium of Curiosities"!! The technique I chose was Dabber Resist with a twist.....I used Distress Embossing Ink and UTEE instead of a paint dabber on the backside of a sheet from Paper Stash.

Once the tag was throughly inked, I then misted the entire tag with "Pearl Water,  a Mini Mister filled with lots of Perfect Pearls and water.

I then dried the tag using her Heat it Tool!! ohhhh....to tear up the edges, I used my Distrezz it All.



I found a new favorite fabric to use called Buckram...TOTALLLY amazing stuff and it takes the Distress Reinker Mixtures FANTABULOUSLY!! I even cut strips of it and colored them with a Peeled Paint reinker mixture!



SOOOOOO can you choose
