She's Into the Alcohol Again!

Alcohol inks, that is - my favorite technique from Tim Holtz.  I actually took my first class with him where I learned how to use this beautiful medium.

This week at Our Creative Corner, Linda Coughlin of The Funkie Junkie is our hostess with a really cool challenge.  She asks that we create a card or project using our favorite Tim Holtz technique.  A pioneer in the crafting community, his products are carried in stores worldwide. 
Here is my design team card for some inspiration.
I used gold and pearl metallic mixative alcohol inks on glossy paper.  I wanted a very subtle bg effect so I could emboss over it with the beautiful Hero Arts Flower Medley stamp.  I used Ranger Gold Ultrafine embossing powder.  I think it looks like capiz shell.
Please drop by Our Creative Corner and join in on our challenge.  Also, check out the awesome projects and their Tim Holtz techniques from the rest of the design team - they are amazing!
