Spritz and Flick - Squirrely Challenge

I'm late. I'm late. For a very important date. I missed the cut off for Nancy's Squirrely Challenge. Mr. Linky is even closed out. Boo hoo

But I am posting anyway because, darn it, I made the card. This is one of the Tim Holtz Techniques taught in his recent class Creative Chemistry. He calls it Spritz and Flick using Distress Inks. I used the technique on the butterflies and their mats. My color choice was Seedless Preserves for the butterflies and Shabby Shutters for the mats. The spritzing was done with my homemade recipe of Perfect Pearls spray. All shapes cut on Cuttlebug using Spellbinders dies. The card base is from Club Scrap's Lotus Pond. The card panel is from Stampin' Up's First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper. All edges inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink. Thanks for looking. Please excuse my tardiness.


  1. Oh it's so spring like! I love the colors and the card layout. Great card!
    I guess I need to work on that mr. Linky stuff... Always something new to learn!

  2. Chrissie, love your card!
    Such pretty color choices. Well done!

  3. Turned out cute - love the colors!
