Time to Breathe

I don't know about you, but after CHA, when loads of new products flood the market, I need to find some time just to sit down and mess around with them, to get a feel for their properties and how I might use them in the future.  This card is the result of such a session - I sat down with a square of Tim Holtz's Kraft Resist pad and just attacked it with Distress Stains, Color Wash sprays and acrylic paint, to see how it reacted and performed.

It doesn't really matter what kind of mess you end up with, you will have learned a lot, and you can always mat the result and make a "men's card" out of it! :)
