Blogger's Challenge #148 Tim Holtz Alterations

click on pictures to see a larger resolution.





Welcome to my blog, this posting is my regular Friday mission, Blogger's Challenge. List mom, Lisa Somerville gave us the task to co-ordinate the colors: Orange, Blue and Moss. I incorporated the color red, because I can't read instructions.....silly me.
Wander over to the Blogger's Challenge List HERE . for you are sure to visit an array of stunning creations.
The Background for all three cards was created, using a very addicting technique, from the Technique Junkies Newsletter 04-05 2010 issue. It is called, Glimmermist Watercolor Art. I used Tattered Angels Glimmermist sprays: Olive Vine, Burnt Red and Waterslide.
The Bird Cages and the Butterfly are diecuts from Sizzix Bigz Dies - the Tim Holtz Alterations Line. Whoa..ho...these dies are.. to die for...
The very vibrant colors you see on the butterfly and the bird cages are a technique using Ranger Alcohol Inks on white glossy cardstock...these inks are the jewels of all my mediums.
Now, if you have not tried the new Tim Holtz Distress inks ,you are really missing out...some of the colors in my creations are Bundled Sage, Barn Door, and Storm Sky. I stamp like I cook, everything goes into the pot.I love the Ranger Pigment inks...I stamped all images using Ranger Pitch Black pigment ink with clear Embossing Powder. The stamps on all of these cards are from Stamper's Anonymous - Tim Holtz line: Oddities - CMS - 083, Soulfull Journey CMS - 029, Fairy Tale Frenzy CMS - 058, Nature's Moments CMS - 001 and Nature's Discovery CMS - 046.

I love what you did with the Alterations dies!

I don't suppose I could woo you out of a couple of birdcages/birds? You could throw them in with some ATCs, and I would be thrilled to cover the postage for the return swaps.
