Pin It!

I did this card for a challenge I am doing with the Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities Book. The challenge was the Water Bleaching Technique with you spray your stamp pad with water and stamp the image on freshly inked cardstock. It gives it a bleached effect. I used the Tim Holtz colors shown in the picture above and stamp is from Hero Arts. The saying I stamped on the card is from Tim Holtz Lost and Found clear stamp collection. If you are interested in the callenge it is at Linda's blog at www.

Christe~ I only had a few Tim Holtz products until I viewed your blog recently. I don't know if my pocketbook thanks you, but I sure do! I got my Compenium of Curiosities book yesterday and am having a blast with the stuff!! Your card is great like everything you do. Will have to have a Card Swap based on the Tim Holtz stuff, sound fun?
