A Tim Holtz inspired Christmas card

I've just completed the Creative Chemstry 103 online course, it was brilliant, with lots of new and some not so new techniques, it's great seeing all the new products and the various techniques you can do with them.

My first card isn't featuring any of the new products as I don't have the new White pigment Distress inkpad so I stamped my trees first with Gesso then with distress ink, good old wrinkle free distress background and some splatters of water and white ink, my sentiment is Indigoblu.

My second card is using Yupo paper and Alcohol inks a stencil and blending solution, the technique is called "Alcohol faded layers on Yupo" however! I only did one faded layer as I wanted it more subtle, I was inspired by a beautiful card I saw on Facebook which Jenny Marples made and as its my lovely Nieces 21st birthday today I thought it would be perfect.

Thank you for visiting, have a wonderful weekend xx Zoe xx
