Love the new Tim Holtz Distress Markers!
I love the new Distress Markers from Tim Holtz. This is the first card I've made with the few I have. I only have 3 so far but plan on buying more.

You can find an excellent video from here showing Tim demo the Distress Markers.

I inked Tim's texture fades embossing folder with a Chipped Sapphire distress ink pad before embossing some white cardstock. Then I used the blending tool with Faded Jeans to add more dimension to the embossed paper. I used the new specialty paper from Ranger Inkessentials for the stamped surfaces. Using Distress Markers in Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass and Wild Honey to color the butterfly stamp, I was able to get 3 impressions after huffing on the stamp between each stamping. You can see each impression is a little lighter. I used the blending tool to add Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint to the edges and it does not disturb the images stamped with the Distress Markers. The ric rac ribbon is from my stash and is wrapped around the white card and threaded through the center of the foliage flower (also Tim's) and tied in a knot to hold it on the card. The "You're the Best" Is a Hero Arts stamp but the Butterfly and Floral Sprig are from Tim Holtz collections. Everything is then mounted on a piece of Kraft cardstock and distressed then inked with Walnut Stain distress Ink.

I made this card for someone who did something kind for me but didn't want me to know who they were. I couldn't thank them in person so I made them this card and gave it to someone who knew who it was. They said they would deliver it for me. If it was you and you're reading this post, Thanks again! What you did was really kind and I appreciate it.

Oh Yeah, Did I say that I Really Love My New Tim Holtz Markers!

Gorgeous card! You picked the right three colors, they all look lovely together. I need to get finished with mine and get them posted still.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your comments too. Glad you liked the project.
