week 2 of Last Scrapper Standing

For the second challenge, you may scrap the subject of your choice but must use a black cardstock base and have at least two handmade flowers. They can be punched, die cut, hand cut, stamped or painted but not premade like Primas.

Here is the one I did.

Good luck. I am looking forward to seeing some really cool flowers!

Great American Scrapbook Convention

or The Day I stalked Tim Holtz and found him charming....
I watched him demonstrate alcohol inks, distressing ink in mini misters, and the tissue tape. He was funny and charming and smiled a lot. Very cute young man. (says the old lady) Here are a couple of pictures I took.

The tissue tape is translucent so you can see through it and layering it makes it more fun. You can ink it. It tears really easy. It is a little hard to find the end of it on a roll cause it is thin tissue but it looks intriguing to me.
