It's 6pm and the first time I've sat down all day, I even missed lunch. It always make me laugh when people say "oh, you don't work, what do you do to fill your day?" In my case I don't know how I found time to work, the days are so busy, but I do know how lucky I am so you won't hear any grumbles!!
Mrs Stampman has set us the challenge of "Anything Tim" over at The Stampman Challenge this time. It always sounds such a great theme but I have to confess I didn't know where to start with this one. I love using Tim's stamps and inks but when I see some of the amazing projects people do using all the ideaology metal pieces I know I could never do anything in the same league. Some of my Teamies are masters at this so make sure you pop over to the blog to have a look at them.
I decided to play it safe and go with a Scrapbook Layout for my design piece.
I used Tim's Compass mask and Brushed Corduroy and Forest Moss Distress ink on a plain piece of card stock and then stamped on it too before spraying with some perfect pearls and distressing the edges for my backing paper.
The Alphabet was cut with the Vintage Market Sissix Die and then stamped on and some Stickles added. It was stuck on with silicone glue.
The Tattered Flower was one I had in my box made from cartridge paper that had been inked and stamped with Broken China and I layered it with the elegant flourish stamped with Forest Moss. The little bits of chain had alcohol ink applied to tie in the colours.
I made my metal embellishments by silver triple embossing using one of the stamps from the Urban Chic set which I love.
I think the rest is pretty self explanatory, I don't want to bore you with loads of detail except to say the photo is of one of my favourite places, Lake Zell in Austria.
I'm sure this theme will inspire loads of you to get your Tim things out and the team can't wait to see what you create. As always Jill is offering a £10 Stampman voucher to the winner.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the weekend, whatever the weather. It has just started pouring down here which, I think, is a sign of things to come.
