Sugar Creek Hollow :Let's save some trees challenge

This week over at SCH there's a great challenge going on Let's Save some Trees . Tracy is asking us to use something on our project from our kitchen --paper towel, coffee filters, etc. I chose to make a flower for my card using paper towel and I just love how they turned out . First I misted a sheet of Paper towel with homemade glimmer mist --victorian lace DI ,perfect pearl powder and water--I then let this dry completely before running it through TH die tattered florals . I noticed that once the towel was dry it created a dot image on the reverse side so I alternated the petals when I put my flower together. Other supplies used

Paper: MME lost and found collection,SU Kraft C/S,Prism c/s
Ink: memento rich cocoa.
Accessories:spellbinders fancy tags, Cheery lynn doily die,Spellbinders edge abilities, lace and ribbon form my stash.

Grungy Monday 31 ; Happy Birthday Tim

Linda over at StudioL3 is challenging everyone this week to make a Birthday card to celebrate Tim's Birthday coming up . Here's my card simple but I like how it came together. All products used were TH's or Rangers except for the happy birthday which is SU. I recently purchased some of the Tim Holtz core kraft c/s which I embossed and sanded ( love this C/S) then misted with my new perfect pearl mist Biscotti --think this is going to be one of my favorites. The tag was sponged with DI antique line,broken china, crushed olive and vintage photo, I then distressed the edges and inked with walnut stain DI. Image was stamped with walnut stain DI.
If you haven't visited Tim's website you really should here's the link :
