Life Is What You Make It by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with one of Tim’s wonderful new stamps…..does he ever make anything other than wonderful?!

What to do:

Use a sheet of Strathmore Mixed Media Paper, sprinkle on a little Infusions in Lemoncello then spritz with water, dry with heat gun.

Stamp the Tim Holtz image in black Archival to the left of the card, stamp the Visible Image sentiment to the right.

Next step is to take a Tim Holtz stencil and pounce through some black Distress ink to the right top and bottom of the card.

Mount onto black card then white cardstock.

I absolutely love these images, they make perfect male themed cards as let’s be honest we can all sometimes struggle to make those!

Supplies Used:

Hope you like it
