Tim Holtz Distress Markers have been on my wish list for quite a while now and the other day I spotted over at Kate's blog that there's a new 'Seasonal' set of 12 lush colours, perfect for a first purchase and little play. They arrived in under 24 hours from Craft Obsessions, along with a 'Picket Fence' marker (white) which I added to the order 'cos I think it'll be very useful. The colours really are ideal for a starter set too. So, yesterday I had a really super fast little play:
- 7" x 5" white card stock
- deep purple/aubergine Core'dinations card stock for the main backing and to layer the image onto
- embossing folder is 'Bon Jour' by Couture Creations - one of these is coming up in the Playground shortly :) It's a lovely folder with a plain panel down the centre - would look good either way round too depending on the image or even just a nice sentiment. What doesn't show up well in the photo is that I layered the image onto a square of the deep purple/aubergine card before adding it onto the plain panel
- the stamp is Penny Black's 'Irises', coloured with 'Mowed Lawn' and 'Seedless Preserves' Distress Markers - then 'huffed' on and stamped
- sentiment is LOTV ''General Greetings - Small', coloured with 'Seedless Preserves' marker again
I adore these markers and can see lots of fun ways to play with them.
Edit: On my way to bed last night I spotted a comment from Kim (Kimbo), one of our Playmates. So I hopped over to look at her snippets make here and am still laughing - do go and take a peek!! Flipping hilarious :)
