New Year, New Challenge...


Happy Friday..

Before I leave for London tonight, I wanted to play along with the latest Simon Says Monday AND Wednesday Challenges...

They are both 'Something New' and the Monday DT used Tim Holtz I did that too.

I went with two New themes - Happy New Year and new stash :)

I recently bought the Tim Holtz and Sizzix Alphanumeric dies, but haven't had a chance to use them.

I used them for this card to die cut the words Happy New Year out of Tim Holtz watercolour paper, that I coloured using Worn Lipstick distress ink, blended using different strengths of ink to create the colour variation.

I stacked them onto a die cut piece of the watercolour paper and then used a new Tim Holtz grid stencil with Ferro Metallic Paste.

I love the end result, a little bit funky, like the friend it is going to :)

Have a great weekend, see you in London next week...
