Look what Tim Holtz did with his new stamp, Splatterfly!


My absolute favorite image from Tim Holtz's newest release is SPLATTERFLY! It is a cool butterfly that looks like it was splattered onto the page (in an artsy way - not a smashed bug kind of way-hee hee :).

Tim has a great technique where he uses his alcohol inks, stamps and a can of compressed air (like the ones you use to clean your computer)! It is easy to do and has a fantastic effect.

Here is the link to Tim's Demo - CLICK HERE. I love this technique! It kind of reminds me of those Sprial Art things we had as kids where the color was splashed around in circles. I love the bright colors Tim uses in this demo and of course, the stamps. Besides the Splatterfly stamp, he also uses BOTANY. It reminds me of a whimsical plant you would see in a fairy tale.

Both of these images are also available in unmounted rubber versions in the set called FAIRYTALE FRENZY. Be sure to check out the whole line of Tim's wood mounted stamps and unmounted stamp sets available at SimonSaysStamp.com. I think he has really outdone himself this time. The images are spectacular!

Well, I better get back to my stamping! So much to create, so little time! ~TERRA
