Something different !



My Sons Birthday Card

A couple of weeks ago I bought QVC,s Todays Special Value, which was Tim Holtz Book "A Compendium of Curiosities" and a collection of his crafting materials,just couldnt resist,his work is awesome,He was over from the States to appear on QVC ,it was great to watch the master at work .......so today i had a play,working from his book the waterstamping technique ,it didnt quite come out like his haha,but looked ok so thought i would make my samples into a card for my son, his birthdays next month,its always hard to do a mans card,Gary's into birds at the moment :-] so hope it works !

I used some stamps i had free with my subscription of Craft Stamper,I think the pocket watch was a freebee on that magazine as well.Quite enjoyed using paper instead of fabric for a change lol.

This is so gorgeous Pattie. I love the backgrounds you've made - they look amazing. Must get the book!

Glad you are having fun playing with Tim stuff. It is quite different for you - brown! Lovely though, and I am sure Gary will appreciate it.
