Hello, friends, it’s Richele. Today I’d like to share a Burlap Panel using some of the new Tim Holtz Alteration Dies from Sizzix. I love dies, they can be used is so many different ways.

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Die cut Funky Foliage from Rangers Watercolor Cardstock.

2. Color the flowers and leaves by applying Distress Oxide Inks directly to Glass Media Mat, pick up ink with Waterbrush, color Funky Foliage and dry with heat tool. I used Oxides Inks for a soft and shabby look.

3. Ink edges with Distress Oxide Ink on an Ink Blending Tool.

4. Mist foliage with Distress Mica Spray and Dry with a heat tool. The shimmer will show once the spray dries.

5. Shape flowers with Sizzix Paper Sculpting Tools.  I like the smallest stylist for these flowers. Place flowers on molding mat and apply pressure with the sculpting tool to create dimension.

6. Mist both sides of Kraft cardstock with water, emboss with Botanical 3-D Texture Fade running through Vagabond machine twice. Use only one cutting pad as the 3-D Texture Fade is thick.
