Loving Tim's texture fades!

The background was created using a technique from Tim's Compendium book.  Cool, huh?  I used grungepaper but then adhered it to grungeboard for sturdiness.  The baby wipes flower was cut using the Tattered Florals die.  I smooshed Distress inks onto my craft sheet, spritzed with water then let the flower layers fall where they may, pushing them down to absorb the color.  Some I spritzed with more water to get better color.  Other than the fern punch (Martha) and the gear/sun (Sizzix) everything else is by Tim.

  4. Really nice piece. The flowers out of baby wipes, who would have thunk. I have the die so now I'll have to go and get some wipes. Great job and thanks for giving this newbie an idea.
