Hanging Art with Mr Holtz!

About a month ago, I attended a workshop with Tim Holtz. We all got to play with the new alcohol ink colours! Yah! and are they just the best colours. We also got to play with the refillable pen, and a bit of sticky backed metal. Here is what we made.

This is the top piece, using Tim's new stamps, and the alcohol ink pens, which were used to highlight the stamp.
The middle piece is die cut letters and flourish in card, covered in sticky back metal, rubber down with a paper stump, then alcohol inked, and sanded off to reveal the metal. The final piece used metallic alcohol inks,( you need the minutest drop) creating an agate style background. ( which doesn't show up on the photo) and some more of Mr Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamps. Finally we added prima clear paintables, and secured with glue dots. All of the squares were covered in the largest of the fragment tiles and held together with books rings. A fab workshop!I am waiting for delivery of all of the new inks from Ranger, and of course all the new Idea-ology range too! Meanwhile, if you want to stock upon your alcohol inks, because I know you will want all the colours, as they all go together you can find them here in the shop. Special offer for this week only is 15% OFF of orders over £25.00 with discount code spring. Just add it to the discount code box when you check out!
Happy Inking

Wow! He is one talented man, but YOU are super talented TOO! I am in love with this wall hanging! What did you use as your base? I am still new to a lot of things outside of card making and scrapping. Again, fabulous job!
