Vintage Be Authentic Grunge A2 Cards | Tim Holtz Watercolour Pencils

Thank you so much for joining me for this Vintage Be Authentic Grunge A2 Cards, Let's jump right in.

To create the background I used a smooch technique and Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink, Laying the colour until I was happy with how it turned out. I then stamped my images on top and used Tim Holtz Watercolour pencils from set 3 and coloured in the images. I brought in some clear glitter on top of the images for added shimmer and shine and then stamped them out again to add the detail back in the butterfly and flower.

I trimmed out a matte for both cards with my deckled edge trimmer and use some Vintage photo Distress Oxide ink on the edges to add a vintage look to the Kraft cardstock. For the Butterfly card I used my tiny attacher to add the white heat embossed sentiment, on the floral card I wrapped some twine around the bottom of my panel and added a heart adornment for some added interest. I used Cafe au Last pearls to finish off both cards then called them done.

Thank you so much for stopping by for this quick look at my Vintage Be Authentic Grunge A2 Cards. If you would like a more in-depth look please check out the video below, I also have a complete supplies list in case you want to know exactly what I used. I hope to see you again very soon!!
