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 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 .
