Hi everyone. A bit late with posting my contribution to Scrapbook Sisters latest card challenge ‘Distress’ , but as the saying goes ‘better late than never’. I’m still suffering with the cold of all colds courtesy of my son and I don’t seem to be able to get into anything at the moment. Its typical - a bit of time off with Easter and this Bank Holiday and not well!!
Anyway for this challenge I decided to have a go with my latest Tim Holtz die – the umbrella man.
I cut him out from Grunge Paper and coloured with Black Soot distress pad. A second umbrella cut out and I drew on the Union Jack which tied in well with the Brits theme we had this weekend with that fantastic wedding. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and didn’t Kate look absolutely beautiful. It was truly a fairytale wedding. No one can do what we do – it makes you proud to be British!
The Paris theme on the top paper section was stamped with Tim Holtz stamps and coloured with distress pads.
The bottom paper was a section from Tims new Kraft paper pad. This pad is lovely as it has already embossed sections on it that act as a resist when applying colour to the paper.
I used the remains of the cut out umbrella man to ink through to create a shadow behind before I used silicone to stick him on to the card.
If you haven’t entered a card in for the challenge yet there is still time. Good Luck.
Thanks for stopping by.
