Rhedd and Rosie and Tim time!!

Hello blog buddies!

It's time for another Rhedd and Rosie challenge, and this time we'd love to see something made with your 'Old Stash'!!  This means use something that you've had in your stash for at least 18 months.  I've used my Tim Holtz adage tickets.....


After taking part in Tim Holtz's Chemistry 101 course, I wanted to try his 'Rusted enamel' technique... what do you think?  It's great fun to do! :)  Here's a close-up....

It looks like green embossing powder sprinkled over a brown base... but in fact it's green distress ink, then clear embossing powder (some flicked off around edges before heat setting) and then brown distress ink rubbed over the areas where the EP has been flicked off!  Neat huh?

Here's the fab prize up for grabs in this 'Use old stash' challenge...  wish I could enter myself!!


Well, I hope I've inspired you to play with your old stash and come join the fun at Rhedd and Rosie's challenge!  Thank you for visiting my blog, and many thanks to you if you have left a comment! :) xxx
