Pretty in Pink

Tim has been inspiring me again... I started from his awesome March Tag and veered off into my own journey.  I am also playing along with The Vintage Journey challenge who are celebrating their birthday by hosting an "Anything Tim" challenge. 




Tim started with a fun paint technique in the background with tissue tape.  I followed that with some pretty pastel paints.   

His next step involved masking and applying embossing powder.  I had some pretty pink sparkle on the table so I swapped out the embossing powder and sprinkled my embossing paste with glitter.  I used the new Tim Holtz Layering Stencil - Flourishes. 

I had this Sizzix Bigz Layering butterfly left over from another project so I decided to use it as my focal point with a sparkly heart accented with a piece of costume jewelry.

With the music in the tissue tape I pulled out a sentiment tied to music. 

Have a fun and glittery day (I will be from all the glitter that walks away with you)
