He has also used a gorgeous enamelling technique over texture paste. To see his full tutorial and join the fun please visit his page here.
I decided that my card version would be for my dear Mum for Mother's day as here in the UK that is just around the corner on 15th March.
I don't have many distress paints so I got out my brightest colours to make my backing card.
Next for the masking I also wanted to use a butterfly but I don't have his set yet so I used my gorgeous large Visible Image butterfly stamp. I love these stamps.
Next I used Tim's honeycomb stencil and spread some texture paste through it and then added gold embossing powder.
I then removed the masks and heated the powder.
How cool is this technique ...thanks Tim I will used this again.
and then it was time to put my creative hat on and put my design together.
Here is my version as a card

The temperature looks set to rise in the UK over the next 4 or 5 days, we may even reach the balmy heights of 16c in the south at the weekend. It would be lovely as we are off to see Daisy and her Mummy and Daddy on Saturday. We hope to get out for a walk and enjoy the countryside in the sunshine and spot the many signs of spring growth everywhere.
Thanks for visiting me today and thanks also for the lovely comments you left on my last post. Enjoy the end of the week.
Bye for now,
