Getting a Little Holtz-Like'

Hey All! 

I have been really enjoying following along with Tim Holtz's fb live demos.  I did a lot of ink smooshing with Distress Inks for this card~

This was actually the first card I made for Freshly Made Sketches #436, but after I was done, I did not do a good job of following the sketch! 
I used Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper and smooshed distress inks in yellows, oranges, pinks and reds onto my craft mat, then spritzed with water with the Distress Sprayer and smooshed my paper into the inky goodness.  I repeated this multiple times, drying in between, to get the spotty goodness.
Once I was happy with the distress ink panel, I stamped the butterfly from the Perspective Stamp Set in Versamark ink and heat embossed in black with Brutus Monroe Raven Fine Embossing Powder
The image panel was then die cut with a stitched rectangle die.  
To add more texture, I used a stencil and  some transparent embossing paste randomly on the panel.  Before the paste dried, I sprinkled some chunky antique gold embossing powder on it and heated it. 
The sentiment is from the Sweet n Sassy Stamp Set, Encouraging Thoughts Stamp Set and was heat embossed in Gina K Designs fine gold embossing powder.   

That's it for me!  I hope you like it. 
I am trying something new by trying to link all products below for your convenience.  Let me know what you think and if it is helpful or not. 

Have a great day!
