A Tim Holtz Creation

Here's the piece of art that inspired me to create the alcohol background that I used on yesterdays cards......

.......a Tim Holtz creation from CHA last summer.

While I was in the Ranger booth getting all the information about the new products & placing an order, my sister was watching Tim demonstrate. He demonstrated the technique for the background & then created this sample. He actually handed it to another "watcher" who then gave it to Kathy. She thought Kathy really liked the colors. How exciting for her! She did really like it! She took it home & framed it. I really like her choice of frame....it's so eye catching setting on this trunk.Here's a little closer look. My camera really picked up the Silver mixative in the back ground.

Because I liked it so much, I tried to duplicate it while I was at Kathy's house last weekend. Here's my attempt........

What do you think? I can see that I didn't get as much Silver mixative on mine.

So far, I just matted it on black glossy cardstock. I plan to frame it to hang in my craft room. Kathy suggested I frame the tags I have that Tim created at other CHA shows. Great idea! I just added frames to my shopping list......

Hope you enjoyed your stop today!
