It is Sunday today, so you probably know what that means eh? This is the Inspiration week for the Challenge # 18 over at the 

Our generous sponsor is Premium Art Brands and wow she has a fabulous prize for one winner 

Hey there guys some more inpiration this week, 

Remember the theme is Tim Holtz Inspiration.....and this is what I made for you....
I got inspired by Tim and I started out with a wallhanger, sort of....hehehe, the background is made with Gesso, lots of Gesso, Modelling Paste and to create the texture I worked with the stencil from Dutch Doobadoo.
Since I just love butterflies and crackle, I have used both. Can you see the heart underneith the butterfly? It is also covered with crackle.....it is allmost camouflaged eh? 

So I played with the texture on the butterfly too, First I played with the Metallic PanPastels and on top with Crackle Accents. 

I forgot to tell you that I also used the Acrylic Metallic Paints, they are really fun to work with. Just like Distress inks and stains, I have colored the borders of my project with it and played with a heart, which is a Die, underneith the heart. I attached some Wings from Dutch Doobadoo on it and now it looks very different....only because of the wings....

My finished project, hope you like it, I am very pleased with it, the way it turned out.
