Because I had to go out of town the end of June/first two weeks of July, I never did get to finish my project based on Tim Holtz’s June 2013 monthly tag.

Finally today I completed a bunch of cards. (Click on the pics for a closer look.)

Most of the stamped images are from a freebie set I got in a Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine.  Aren’t they sweet?

I used Tim’s tips to do the coloring with Distress Markers. They’re nice and blend-able and easy to use, especially with a water brush.

I don’t have any of his Distress paints yet, so just used Distress Inks, Distress Stains and  little bit of Distress Crackle paint for the backgrounds.

Instead of stamping the backgrounds with black ink, I used a variety of Distress inks (Broken ChinaWild HoneyVintage PhotoBundled SageWorn LipstickTumbled Glass) for a softer look.  Some Baker’s Twine finished the look and that was that.

Since I was away from home for so long my to do list is enormous.  Here’s one item checked off!

Happy creating, ya’ll. 🙂
