Art Washes Away From The Soul The Dust Of Every Day Life

I've used the Stampers Anonymous Tim Hotlz Classics 4 Stamp Set this week to create my card for Creative Expressions, I am loving the background text stamps in this set.
I am also loving using colour this week in the form of Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.
A mini canvas has been added to the top of my card to add wonderful dimension, stamped with the images from the Classics 4 Stamp Set and I have also added Signmaker Alpha Parts for added interest along with Remnant Rubs Numbers.
I have added layers of stamping in the background, stamping first with Picked Raspberry to give tone on tone stamping and then with Black Archival Ink which pops against the colourful backdrop.
ART has been added using Alpha Parts to add further dimension and interest along with a Pen Nib coloured with Black Soot Distress Paint.
The fabulous background text has been added to the bottom of my card, I love this text so useful to use in any project. I have also added a second Pen Nib.
Why not pop by the Creative Expressions NEWS page to catch up with my fellow DT team members inspiring art work and there are also inspiring workshops posted by Suzanne Saltwell along with the regular tv schedules.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
