The bulk of the day was spent at the Craft show where we sat in on many demo's and make'n'takes, the one that caught my interest was the Tim Holtz products and samples.
l participated in the tag make'n'take and loved the techniques, that started me thinking, had l used anything that l didn't already have a similar Stampin-Up product at home....well the answer was not really!
I figured l should be able to use all my Stampin-up products in the same way........Today l put that theory to the test and made a few sets of tags, half using my SU and the other half using the Tim Holtz inks that l had already and a Distress paint l purchased yesterday.
Those on the left are all SU and on the right the inks and crackle effects are Tim Holtz.
As you can see they are very similar, the only difference to the look seems to be the size of the cracks.....
This last set has no crackle/paints...just similar ink colours applied with sponges, using clear E/P for emboss resist.
I am glad l didn't purchase spur of the minute, as l am more than happy with the tags on the left!
All images, ribbons and embossing products are Stampin-Up.
Have a great day!
