I <3 Tim Holtz


I ❤ Tim Holtz, seriously. I love his style – that eclectic vintage look is truly fab.

I’ve had Distress Inks for a year or so and use them more than any other. After referring to his 12 Months of Tags June post several times in the past few weeks. I decided that I had to get the mini versions of the stamp pads. The first six sets just arrived yesterday.

I decided to break in some of the new inks today with the Honeycomb THS005 stencil.

First, I simply stamped directly onto the stencil with the pads in a rainbow pattern. I was just trying to get some of the color on the paper, not the actual pattern of the stencil. This was the result.

Then I spritzed the stencil with water and put it ink side down on another sheet of cardstock. The result is gaw-juss!
