My friend Marilyn regularly participates in Studio L3 challenges and she does the most amazing work using the instructions in Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities. I've had my book for a while now and decided I should try out some of the techniques.
The challenge this week is "Perfectly Distressing"! You'll find the instructions on page 38 of the book. I used it on the truck image which is my favourite TH stamp for masculine cards. Although it's hard to see the pearl shine in the pic, a bit of it shows on the back end of the truck.
For the card, I used:
-Bazill cardstock, Basic Grey graph paper, Karen Foster Collage paper
-Tim Holtz Alterations Embossing Folder "Patchwork"
-TH Distress Inks - Tea Dye, Brushed Corduroy, & Forest Moss
-Perfect Pearls Gold
-Truck stamp & verse from the TH "Journey" Visual Artistry collection
-Oval and Scallop Spellbinders Nesties
-Metal corner & lock are embellies from my stash.
