New Tim Markers~

Hi Girls

I had a little treat on Friday.
I have had Tim Holtz new Distress Markers on order at my local craftshop for a month now, but got the call on Friday to say they were here..........I marched straight down, then had a little play with them.
I really did not know what they were like, although I had seen a tutorial of Tim using them on youtube.
I was really pleased with them and they are so very different from my usual medium of Pro Markers and Copics. They are watercolour type markers, so can be used with a water brush.

On this card I have used them, direct to stamp, a technique I have not used for years.
I have had this wood mounted stamp for ages, it is made by Art Impressions. I just love the two milk churns and the grasses, I have used it in the past as a get well and thank you card.
It was lovely to colour with the markers and I was really happy with the finish, exactly what I was after. I wanted it subtle and pale and quite delicate looking, so think I achieved that.

I have used leftover bits and bobs of paper, Hobby House brown flower and pearls, the lovely leaf is a Memory box die I have had for a while and not used 'till now, Ooh I do like it.
The shape round the image and matt is a nestie die, I don't use this one very often, I always think it looks like a big cloud! But I was quite happy with it when it was cut.
I have stamped half a dozen of these images so I will make them all into Thank you/Get well cards for my stash.
I had a table booked at a church hall with my friend Angie yesterday, we were selling all our handmade craft goodies, although it was not highly attended we still sold a few things and I managed to sell a good dozen of my cards, so I was happy. All funds are greatly appreciated and go straight back into the "Buying" of more craft goodies pot! Ha Ha (That is on May 12th, so not long now!!)

The Timmy markers are fab, aren't they? I couldn't get on too well with the inks but love the markers. I just need loads more practice now! Love the effect they've given to your stamped image - really subtle. Lovely! xx

I'm so interested in those markers too but haven't seen anyone use them yet. I love your image, it really does have that faded, soft look you were after and it is such a versatile image! Thank-you for sharing with us at The Poodles Parlour!
