Tim Holtz Festive Print Card Set

Super quick post and set of cards today featuring the Festive Print stamp set from Tim Holtz.

I started by inking up several panels with Distress Oxides.  The upside of a crafty weekend with friends is that you get a lot done.  The downside (at least for me) is that you write nothing down, so I'm honestly not sure exactly which colors I used on these, except there is definitely some Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover, but the rest of it gets a little hazy.

Anyway, I did not actually mask off my inked areas, but rather used the large opening from the Printmaking Houses stencil.

Usually I prefer my regular Distress Inks over Oxides because they are more vibrant, but for pure blends where you want a really even blend, Oxides are definitely better.

Once my inking was done, I spritzed each of the panels with a bit of water, and then stamped the snowglobe images and sentiments with Versa Clair black ink.

Each of the panels was adhered to the card base with foam tape.

Really clean and simple, and you can definitely make a bunch of these in a hurry.
