Homework Day 1 for Tim Holtz' creative chemistry 103

This is an "in between posting" as I am currently taking part in Tim Holtz's on line class, Creative Chemistry 103.
It is running live all this week and there are so many fabulous techniques he is sharing.
Each day he is asking us to do some homework and create something using one of his techniques. I don't use Flickr so I need to use my blog to upload my homework to the online gallery.

This my homework for Day 1, which was yesterday.  I have used his distress off-set stamping technique. I obviously cannot share his process, you would need to sign up for his class.
I bought the Lady Rose stamp set a while back and decided I would use both the flower stamps from it.

Here is my background I created using his technique...it is such a cool technique...

 I decided to distress the edges and make it into a card...and below is my finished piece of homework. 

I just love the vintage feel of this technique and can see me using it lots. 

I also used an offset idea by using 2 colours of card for my sentiment.

Thanks Professor Tim for your awesome creativity. I have nearly finished day 2's class today and I hope to get time tomorrow to do some homework in the afternoon.

I'd also like to link up with these challenges;
