tim, vintage butterflies and kraft glassine paper.

Hi bloggers, just realised that this card is the same colours as the challenge before, must say something about me.................vintage.!(at 38? I hope not!!!!)
well here it is ..

I decided to have a play with my new kraft glassine paper from the one and only Tim Holtz and what fun WOW!!!!

I will list the items I used below in case anyone in the blogosphere has found me yet and wants to try this!

The paper was amazing, I stamped the Tim Holtz stamp PAPIILION in archival ink onto the glassine paper and it seemed to float on the surface, when heated the paper seemed to melt and once heat removed as soon as this happened the image then seemed to sink into the depths of the paper, how cool!!!
Anyway hope you like the card, drop me a comment and let me know........PLEASE?!!!!
