My Only Heart

Hi to all!  I had a lot of fun making this card.  I have wanted to try the Tim Holtz techniques for awhile but I never knew  what I wanted to make.  The challenge at Studio L3 got me thinking hard and I came up with this project.  When I was putting it all together I realized that it wasn't anything like what I had planned, but I am really happy with the way it came out.

The heart piece uses a Shabby Chic paint technique and you can check out the Tim Holtz site and his blog for information on how he does this.  A great many of his techniques are in his book called, "A Compendium of Curiosities".  It is well worth checking out if like the grungy style.  His site is  Check out all of the cool projects and challenges at Studio L3 also.

I have used the Pitch Black paint as well as Espresso, Gold and Copper.  This really was a cool technique.  Actually I am quite surprised that mine worked out so well.  WOO HOO!

I am entering it into the Grungy Monday Challenge at Studio L3.  I am so glad that I found this site last week.  How did I miss this one?  Wish me luck and let me know what think of my creation.
