Tim Holtz Brushstoke Flowers and Butterfly Card


Hi friends and happy Monday!  I'm delighted to be joining the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge today, where the challenge this week is Layer It with a focus on Tim Holtz products.  I've created a springtime greeting with Tim's Brushstroke Flowers 2 dies.  I used a variety of Distress Inks to color my die cut flowers.

I made the background panel by dipping a piece of Bristol into watered Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and stamping it with the Fragments stamp set.  I love this set so much!  I chose one of Tim's Cabinet Card frames as a base to layer a butterfly from his Botanical Layers ephemera.  I sanded the butterfly lightly then dipped it into watered Vintage Photo Distress Ink to degloss it.  I finished with an Ideaology Clippings sentiment, also colored with Vintage Photo.  I double stitched around the main panel and matted onto contrasting layers to complete this card.  I hope you're inspired to play along with this week's challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift card to Simon Says Stamp.  Thanks for joining, Autumn

I was excited to see you in the Designer Spotlight this week. What a gorgeous card! I’m loving the Brushstroke Flower dies, and your flowers are amazing. Such a pretty card. Also, thanks for the reminder to pull out all that ephemera I had to have. The butterfly is the perfect focal image!
