Card with robot and metallic background

Hello everybody, let me show you my second inspirational piece of our March challenge - Be inspired by Tim Holtz. I bet that this challenge is many crafters' favourite, like Tim and his products and his techniques.

As I was a huge fan of Tim's challenges (the "12 tags of....") I chose the techniques from there.

The background is from here: 12 tags of 2016 - January.

The watercolouring is from here: 12 tags of 2016 - July.

What I used:

Ranger Embossing Powder, Clear

Ranger Distress Markers

Ranger Distress ink pad, Hickory Smoke - for the edges of the mixed media papers

black paint


If you have a project which was inspired by Tim Holtz (his products, his techniques), please don't forget to join our challenge where you can win a £20 voucher!

Happy crafting!
