...Well it was actually a class using all of Tim's latest new "Distress Inks" and learning how to use the inks to make cool backgrounds for cards! However, this was NOT taught by Tim, but by one of his "biggest fans" and was excellent! I learned lots of cool ideas! Everything we used in class was from his line or from Ranger!
The class was at my LSS "Absolutely Everything" and Kate (the owner), taught it. As I said before, she's a huge Tim Holtz Fan and he comes to the store generally one weekend each year and teaches several classes. I HOPE that maybe the next time he comes, I can get in to one of the classes. I do like his NEW embossing folders and his new papers too and I finally bought one of his "tiny attachers", which is a wonderful mini stapler that I love.
I had a nice day, just to be out again and I met Dianna there and we took the class together, which was fun. It's been a long time since we've taken a class, so it was NICE to see her. I also did some shopping and was thrilled to find that Kate is now carrying Magnolia Stamps, another brand called Northwood and had a whole bunch of awesome new products in the store. I bought some new stamps, papers, distress inks and more! Overall a nice day!
These are the four cards we made in class! We also used all 12 of the newest "Distress Ink" colors in the backgrounds for the four cards along with various inking techniques! I do think these cards are very unique and that his cards are definitely good "Male" cards. Alex liked them ALL and said I should try more "out of the box" ideas...LOL!
I really learned a lot and creating these cool backgrounds was really fun. I already have all of the supplies I need for this, so I plan to use these new techniques more often and did buy a few more of the new colors to have for coloring too!!
