Having fun with the new Tim Holtz Oxides.

With apologies, some of you have already seen this post but it published at the wrong time - probably my fault lol. Thank you to those who have already left comments and here it is again in it's correct slot.

Hi it's Brenda here today to share a little playtime I had recently using the new Distress Oxides from Tim Holtz. I haven't completed a project as I spent time playing with a palette of three colours, spritzing, dipping and drying many layers to create these fabulous backgrounds.

If you would like to see more then pop over to Bumblebees and Butterflies and also keep a watch out on the project blog over the next couple of weeks where I will be showing how I used these two pieces in a project.

Don't forget to take a look at the Challenge Blog to see the challenge details 'Inspired by Tim Holtz' and all the fabulous entries we already have. (You'll find the link on the sidebar).
