Tim Holtz Mask - OK, I admit it...I'M HOOKED :o)

Grrrr, had to come in from weeding as it decided to persist down with rain, soooo I had another play with my new Tim Holtz Flourish Mask. What do you think?...

The paper is from Cosmo Cricket - Autumn. On the large paper I used the mask in the usual way with Antique Linen Distress ink (my favorite) and then on the strip I used the negative inked up with Antique Linen first and run through the Cuttlebug and I decided it was too pale. So I inked it up again with Vintage Photo Distress ink and because the negative (and the mask) are clear I was able to position my paper again in the same place and re-run through the Cuttlebug. To make things easier I reversed the Cuttlebug Sandwich ( you can make sure the mask is in the right position this way) on the second run, from the bottom up -

  • A plate
  • B plate
  • tan mat
  • 2 scrap pieces of card
  • DP with pattern up
  • mask, ink down
  • B plate

And you can see I also did A Tim Holtz Grungeboard heart. Well actually it's a flourish, I cut it in half and positioned them to look like a heart, just got to get rid of the two sticky up bits at the bottom :o) HOPEFULLY this will end up being an Anniversary card, with a few more bits added of course. Anyway I just wanted to share my new toy with you and I can't wait to buy some more T H Masks, but they'll have to wait until next pay day UGH :o(
Take care & keep smiling
