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!!)
