I Said I Wouldn't Do This!

Ok, I was talked into creating a blog to showcase my creativity. I have been resisting this for far too long, but now is the time to finally get the ball rolling.

So here goes. Come with me on my journey into creativity.

Tim Times Ten Challenge - Day 3

Ok... I'm still at it.  I was out all day trying to find me a new computer.  My 3 yo laptop died on me and I was not happy.  I'll blog later about my efforts in getting one later on.

So without further ado, todays challenge tag was to create a Steampunk Tag.  Your design must incorporate a key, 3 arrows, and a pointing hand. At least one of the elements listed must be a metal embellishment and one stamped image must be manually (hand) cut out.

Check out the site and look at the creativity of everyone:

Tim Times Ten Grand Give-Away Challenge - Day 2

Ok... here we are with day 2's challenge.  You are to create a tag using the masking technique and one of the masks had to be a bee.  

Here goes..........
I used the Tim Holtz mask for the flourish and a bee stamp that I had.... and masked the image.   I misted with Glimmer Mist in Meadow Green and Oriental Poppy.  Then I went back over the bee with my embossing pen and embossed with red embossing powder.  I inked the tag with Peeled Paint and Barn Door Red Distress inks.  Added a few clear rhinestones, and some Prima flowers.

Tim Times Ten Grand Give-Away Challenge

Ok..... I've been gone for far too long.  Work has really gotten in the way of my playtime.

A scrapper friend , Stampin' Dymonz,  opened up a studio for hosting crops and hanging out with friends in Baltimore, MD a year ago.  This is the anniversary of the Scrapshack. So in honor of this anniversary, she has created a great challenge which is right up my alley......... Nostalgic tags , ala Tim Holtz style.  The grand prize is a brand new Tim Holtz Vagabond.  Now who wouldn't want one of those puppies!!  Me, me, me!

So, for my tag I use a shipping tag and inked it with Tim Holtz Distress Embossing ink  using a Travelogue stamp from TPC Studios and overlayed it with Distress Vintage Photo Embossing Powder.  I inked the edges with Vintage Photo and Faded Jeans Distress inks.  I tore a piece of paper from the Retro Grunge stack and inked the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink, stamped part of another stamp (RAVEL) in Fired Brick ink.  I added a little piece of ribbon to the bottom of the tag.

I love the gritty feel of this tag.  It will go quite well in a travelogue scrapbook that I'm working on.  You can find the challenge site by going here: http://www.stampindymonz.com/2011/04/tim-times-ten-grand-give-way-challenge.html .
