H is for Holtz (as in amazing Cracked Pistachio Distress by Tim)


It is February. HOW did this happen? Well to celebrate I pulled out my cracked pistachio distress (yeah, all the forms) and played.

I’ve been watching Princess & The Frog (one of the BEST of Disney movies… which is saying something!) and this color got me thinking… Mardi Gras! So lots of distress on the background then also cracked pistachio paint on the metal accent up top and a few playful do-dads here and there. It’s party time alright!


Cracked Pistachio = so awesome. Here’s a short video I made with a look at the forms and why I love it so…

  6. I’m so excited about Cracked Pistachio- and you made it look wonderful! I especially like how you incorporated the beaded garland embossing in the background to mimic Mardi Gras beads. Clever, clever!

  7. Your tag really exudes Mardi Gras! You have created with the perfect colours, the beads banner and FDL charm at the top and your cluster of beads buttons from that detailed brooch at the bottom is perfect!
