TIM HOLTZ MINI MASK

 
 
...the world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do...

...hello everyone, today I'm sharing with you my DT piece for It's Crafting Time...the theme for this week is our supplied product...
 
...I have made a card using the Compass Mini Mask by Tim Holtz...
 
 
...the background paper is from 'crowded Attic' by Tim Holtz, I placed the mask and lightly inked the whole piece with old paper distress ink for that aged feel...
 
 
...the mask is fabulous and gives great effect, I added some ideaology spinners...
 
 
...I finished off with a sentiment very apt for travel, some burlap and an idealogy disc tied with twine, I hope you like it...
 
 
...It's Crafting Time stocks a vast range of products in store if you live locally but if not check out their on-line shop here http://itscraftingtime.blogspot.co.uk/
 
 
...It was the first time I have used a mask and found it very easy and loVed the amazing effect...
 
...thank you for stopping by today & a huge thank you to my followers old & new for all your kind & encouraging words...

  3. I love the fact that you've used a background paper to start - this inspires me to do that as I rarely use them as a starting point. I think the one small touch of 'colour' lifts the whole card and of course, those spinners are a wonderful final touch! When I saw the thumbnail for this gorgeous creation, I thought it was going to be a canvas - now there's a thought. . . . . you would make an amazing job if it was!
    Have a good week,

  25. That is really nice, captures that "distress feel', that's for sure. I'll have to get out that mask, I'm sure i have it somewhere. Did you say that was old paper distress ink? I've never heard of that. Barb
