Hi girlies! Wow, I am having a blast with the Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry Class.  I just love Distress Inks, Stains, etc and he is doing a fantastic job explaining when to use the different inks.

Since my cards tend to have layers and bulk, I wanted to take this class to see if I can learn ways to add depth and dimension without bulk. I also think it will give me lots of ideas for masculine cards since I think Tim’s dark colors make a great palette for male oriented cards. LOL with that said, my first card is not masculine at all.

I don’t have any tags; I decided that was something I didn’t have to buy to play, so today, I have a card for you using his Stamping with Reflections Technique.

OWH Color Challenge 3_21

Over at Operation Write Home* the MWTD challenge is to make cards using the colors yellow and green for our heroes to send home to their family and friends. So with some Craftwell card stock, Tim Holtz embossing folder, stamps and Distress Inks I came up with this.

Hero Arts butterfly stamps and Judy Kins Whispy Bamboo stamp make up the image.

OWH Color Challenge 3_21_4

Prima flowers, specialty ribbon and lace finish up the card. So, very little bulk but lots of texture and dimension. What do you think?

I also made this card for:

Mynnette’s Spread the L-O-V-E challenge since this will be sent to our troops and will make it’s way home to a friend or loved one.
