Hello Connie Fossenier here from Stony Rapids, Saskatchewan. The snow is melting and this morning I could hear the wonderful sounds of the rapids running on Lake Athabasca.  I am truly blessed to be able to live here.

View the "what's new" in the Scrapbooking Fanatics store and take a tour of the wonderful product lines.
 Today, I am sharing a card I made using Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Cling Mounted Stamps.
The cute little bird is from Tim Holtz Cling Mounted stamp set called Crazy Birds CMS22 was water colored with Ranger Distress Markers and Tim Holtz Water color brush.  
The Background stamp was from Stamper's Anonymous Tim Holtz Cling mounted stamps called "Natures's Moments  
The stamped background was wet embossed on water color paper. The background was created using a technique with Tim Holtz Alcohol inks called Alcohol Ink Float on water.
 Here is a link of a wonderful tutorial  by Andy Skinner showing this style of background.   I use  medium weight water color paper and simply float on top rather than dip into the basin of water.  Be warned !!  this techie is a very addicting and fun.  
 The  backgrounds were spawned from another favorite medium composition of mine called Faux Metalic and Distress Water Color using Tim Holtz Metallic Stress Paints: Click on the link below to view all the wonderful lines of  Distress Stains & Distress Paints 

thank you for stopping by

So nice to see you blogging again, Connie. I love this card a lot. Your background is terrific and so is your crazy bird. I've had those birds and accessories for a year now and have not used them. I'm intimidated by them and am afraid I won't live up to people's expectations. Thanks for the chance to win. Hugs.
