CCC#21 Perfect Distress


This week Linda of Studio L3 set us the challenge of Tim Holtz's Perfect Distress technique that can be found on page 38 of his Compendium of Curiosities book.  I love this technique, have had Perfect Pearls for a while now but not used them much, so this challenge was good in getting me to use something from my stash.  I love the look, gives a really soft, pearly sheen - it's a bit hard to see in the picture but I think lends a vintage look to the tag.  Used the swiss cheese punch Tim gave us on the cruise to give a different look to the rosette. Finished off with a ruffle of tissue tape - love that stuff!

Yvonne, this is brilliant! What a great use of the Perfect Distress technique-- the colors are spectacular together! I love that reindeer flying through the snow, and the rosette looks extra cool with the random holes punched through it. Great use of the tissue tape, too. I love how you turned it into a ruffle!

This is a stunner of a tag!
