Card with roses by Tim Holtz

Hello everybody, let me show you the second inspirational project I made for the March challenge of the Country View Challenges. The theme was chosen by the lovely Sue: Postcard 6x4"

A 300gsm mixed media paper was painted with DecoArt Americana Light Buttermilk colour. Usually, for me, the painting means that I tap the paint with a sponge to the surface.

Then I added DecoArt Americana Mississippi Mud colour with a toothbrush.

When it was dry I added DecoArt crackle paste through the mosaic stencil by Tim Holtz.

I inked the edges with Ranger Archival Potting Soil ink.

The flowers were stamped on 300gsm watercolour paper and heat embossed with Ranger white embossing powder. I coloured them with Abandoned Coral and Mowed Lawn.

I put a layer of Micro Glaze to protect the colours of the flowers.

The text was cut out with one of the dies of Sizzix Thinlits, Handwritten Celebrate set.

I hope you like it and if you have a project with the size of 6x4", please don't hesitate to join our March challenge where you can win a £ 20 voucher.


  1. Love this - especially the texture paste through the stencil, have never seen crackle texture paste, like the idea of that! Rachel

  2. Love it Monika! The flowers look stunning, lots of work involved in the fussy cutting I bet...

  3. Monika, this is beautiful! I love how you've colored those flowers! GORGEOUS! Hugs!


Thank you for your lovely comments, I really appreciate it!
