Embellishments/Tools: CottageCutz 'Bella Floral Frame Elites CCE-002-BIG'. Memory Box Stencil 'Tessatina 88516'. Bakers twine. Misc Washi, ribbons and a charm - unknown/scraps.
Techniques: I always use my Scor-Pal to score n fold my cards. I prefer Canson Montvale aquarelle paper (200 g/m coldpressed). My distress tools from Ranger Ink is always in use! ~ Tim Holtz® Mini Ink Round Blending Tool & the Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool and Foams. I used misc. Luminarte Twinkling H2o's Shimmering Watercolors, and Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads & markers to watercolor and distress image and papers. I have used alchol ink on the heart-charm to alter the color ~ very useful for all those bits and bobs u have lying around that never fit in, color-co-ordinate to make them fit your project!

The detailed image to the left shows some of the lovely shiny glitter that comes from the H2O's :) Glossy Accents on details too. Heat embossed text. The background of the image was made with a stencil and I masked the image first. Got all of the Distress Stains from Blitsy this xmas, and finally got to play with them: Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry + sponged on some Tumbled glass & Broken China. I usually HATE using pinks n pastels, but with Tim Holtz' distressed colorpalette I find that I really LOVE them ♥
