The Stampman Challenge-Anything Tim

Afternoon lovely Bloggers. I hope you are still enjoying this lovely sunshine.

Frankie is hosting The Stampman challenge this time and is in her element with Anything Tim. I think we've all been looking forward to this one, who can resist playing with products from the King Of Craft.

This is my DT piece and I thought it was time for another box.

I used some new alcohol inks I bought from The Stampman at Harrogate last weekend, Citrus and Pool, to make the background and then stamped the heart from Tim's Urban Chic Stamp set in black Stazon.

The main part of the box was inked lightly with Broken China Distress ink.

The hearts inside were cut out and painted with turquoise Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paint and turquoise stickles added on top. I sandwiched the acetate between two hearts. For a change I added a little raised platform in the middle of the box just to give another dimension.

Unfortunately I didn't have any Tim hardware for the lid so raided Hubby's shed and added a washer and nut and little knob I found as a homage to Tim!!

There are some stunning pieces from the rest of the Design Team so please pop over and have a look and be inspired. As always, The Stampman are offering a £10 voucher for the winner so it's well worth having a go.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the weekend.
