Tim Holtz Meets Brutus Monroe!

Welcome to the blog!  I'm back and bringing another Deco Foiled card to the table!  I know I can't be the only stamper out there who thinks that Tim Holtz and Brutus Monroe products compliment each other wonderfully!  I paired them up in this card and love the results!  Let's talk about what happened here!  

Starting on a base card of Lunchbox cardstock, I placed my grid stencil over it, then covered just a section of it with Deco Foil Transfer gel.  I wiped off the excess then removed the stencil and let the gel dry to tackiness.  I didn't have my heat laminator at that point, so I just pressed the sheet of Drybrush Transfer Foil onto the tacky gel and rubbed it with a credit card to transfer the foil.  I then turned the foil around to make the design go in the opposite direction and rubbed on some more.  What a cool look!  
I heat-embossed the main image from Tim Holtz' Road Trip set onto a piece of watercolor cardstock, then colored it in with Zigs, roughed up the edges with my scissors and sponged some Raven Detail ink to make it pop.  On my base card with the foiled design, I stamped out the tire tracks with Hickory Smoke distress oxide ink, then stamped the other images in the background to fill in the space.  
Just look at all that texture!!  
I loved combining the products from two great companies!  I wonder if Tim and Christopher have met in real life?!  Perhaps a collaboration is in the future!  I hope so!  In the meantime, I hope you've poked around on Brutus Monroe's website to see what new toys you'd like to play with!
