Your Favorite Tim Holtz Technique

Welcome back friends of the OCC!  It's great to have you with us this week.  We want to thank everyone who visited us last week, especially those who joined in with Sue's Embellished Frame challenge.  Be sure to stop back on Wednesday to see who we chose as the Top Talent for that challenge.

Linda Coughlin here as hostess.  Before we get to my challenge, I also want to let you know that we will be kicking off a design team call here starting on Monday, June 11th running through June 22nd.  We will have a post up on Monday with all the details and an linky for you to submit your best work.  We will have five open positions and are looking for a wide range of styles from CAS to grunge to shabby chic.  Anyone who has had a blog for six months or longer is welcome to apply so be sure to stop back on Monday for all the deets.

This week my challenge to you is to show us your favorite Tim Holtz technique (A TECHNIQUE!  USING A TIM HOLTZ/RANGER PRODUCT DOES NOT QUALIFY FOR THIS CHALLENGE!!).   Whether you are a big fan of Tim Holtz or not, you can't deny that he has had an incredibly powerful impact on the paper crafting industry and it's a lot of fun to try out some of his techniques.  Check out his blog and the Ranger blog for all sorts of step by steps and demos on dozens of techniques.  What's your favorite Tim Holtz technique?  We hope you will share it with us this week.  And now let's check out the favorite TH techniques of our designers.
