Lord Tim of Holtz Technique.

There is a fun challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show
You need to pick a Tim Holtz technique. I chose masking.
I had never tried the masking technique before. Will be doing a lot more of them!
This is what I came up with....

I created my background using the wrinkle free distress technique. The distress ink colours are Wild Honey,Worn Lipstick and Shabby Shutters.
Then I used mini mask Floret with Rusty Hinge distress ink.
Stampers Anonymous stamps 'Eclectic Palette', 'Urban Tapestry' (specks)butterflies and other small bird stamps were inked with Versafine black.
Walnut Stain distress around the edges of the tag.
