Inspired by Tim Holtz

Hello there,

Well, the sun's been shining again today and I'm starting to think that Spring really is on the way.  It's lovely to see the blossom on the trees again and I'm looking forward to warmer days coming soon.

I'm here today with a card that I've made for the challenge over at Country View Crafts challenge which is 'Inspired by Tim Holtz'

My Daughter bought me the Tim Holtz Umbrella Man die for Christmas and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to give him his first outing.


I made the background by using Brushos and Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powder.  I'm really loving using my Brushos recently and I think they work really well with this particular die,  The effect at the bottom was purely accidental, as you never know what you're going to get as an end result but it does look like he's splashing in a puddle.  The sentiment is one that I've used may times before and is by Inkylicious.

I hope that you enjoy the rest of your weekend and that the sun is shining wherever you are :)

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

This is such a striking card. The colours are gorgeous and what luck that the puddle should appear where it did!! We have had a mixture of sun and showers in Dorset today, quite chilly too xx

I just love the background! So fresh and reminds me of spring... The umbrellaman is such a perfect image for this challenge; it still is a beautiful image! Enjoy the slowly coming spring! Think at your part nature is a little bit further...here we have daffodils, but not much on the trees jet... Hugs, Gerrina
