Tim's Technique

Hi all whilst in Birmingham, Tim Holtz showed us how to put sticky back metal on top of a die cut, burnish it and then ink with alcohol ink. We then sanded back the die cut image to create a really cool effect.

I decided to have a go at this technique for my Husband's birthday card this year and this is the result.

Have you noticed my Blinkie from Hero Arts? Cool ehh? If you would like one for your own blog, click this link and follow the instructions. They are even offering a chance of a prize if you put one on your blog.

Oh that IS cool! I want to pick up a few Tim tips when I come over :) I look forward to seeing the card in the flesh so I can get touchy feely with it!

Sounds like fun! I think he showed this technique in one of his videos. It produces some amazing results! :-)
