Good morning all! I hope you are well and happy! We're good - we had lots of fun at Rainbows last night - we made chocolate cake hedgehogs - lots of fun and super delicious too!!!!
Today I've got to show you my Tims tag for September - well mine is not quite like sir Tims - infact mine is a bit of a mess - but I really njoyed making said mess so thought I'd share it with you!!!
Here's sir Tims for this month:
Now mine followed the step by steps of tims that you can find here - 12-tags-of-2013-september
but not having yet had the chance to purchase tims stencils I had to use what I had available - oh and I think I've discovered why tim only pasted up the top corner - because the stamps don't work so well onto of the embossing paste - lol - you live and learn!!!!
I did warn you! Oh but the fun factor was immense! I have to say I loved doing this!!! I'd like to enter it into timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2013-september
Something else I've been having fun with is the making of my friend and ex chemistry teacher colleague Cheyl's 40th birthday card/box. Her birthday was yesterday so its safe to show it now - and its all Tim Holtz stuff so I thought I'd show the two together.
This is the front of the card - I had lots of fun with distress inks, some sprays - colourwash and dylusions, and some stencils and pastes. The stamps are from the Tim Holtz set called The chemist. I coloured the images with promarkers.
This is inside on the rhs - the book was part of my winnings from LEJ Designs CB where I got goodies from Mishelflo - the service was fabulous - thanks Michelle! I also got the Tim Holtz vials from that win too - they're brilliant.
I've used the paperstash that accompanies the chemist stamp set - also Tim Holtz - and these letters are grungeboard sprayed up with dylusions.
This is the back of the 'card' - Cheryl loved the whole thing - I'm really glad as it took quite a lot of time!!!!
I'd like to enter Cheryl's card into the following challenges:
