Tim Holtz- The Man, The Myth,The Legend

This week over at the Corrosive Challenge is to create a card using Tim Holtz products. You know, I have watched him on you tube demonstrating and have bought his stamps and inks but I still struggle. This is my first attempt trying to get the "Tim Hotlz" look. I used distress inks and smeared them on a placemat, I then added water and laid my paper into the ink to get the background colour. I used this stamp collection from his ideaology set(I really like the dude image). I am in for gallbladder surgery on May 1st and hopefully that will put an end to my stomach problems- Fingers crossed!

Hit the Bottle!

Hit the Bottle!

This week's corrosive challenge is to" hit the bottle" Now I know what everyone is thinking- what a great challenge the cards will look like crap because we are all loopy from drinking but sadly it isn't that kinda of challenge. You are to use anything that comes in a bottle for crafting. Examples would be stickles, liquid pearls, etc. For this card I used Stampin Up's upsy daisy set(still one of my fave sets) and bleach. The card is old navy, basic black, whisper whire and crumb cake, all Stampin up. A very basic but effective card. I am now off to really "hit the bottle" enjoy the challenge!

Heavy Metal!

Well, I can't believe it is April already! We ended March off with snow, but it is looking much better now. April is Autism Awarness Month and I will be posting about all the fun things the family is doing to celebrate. We are starting off by wearing our shirts to works on Monday whuch say I Love someone with Autism and lighting our house with blue lights(tells everyone someone lives here with Autism).

On with the challenge, this month's sponser is Dilly Beans and I have to say I really like her images. This week at the corrosive challenge is Heavy Metal, so adorn your card with some metal. I used some hodgepodge hardware from Stampin Up and made some metal butterflies to attach to go along with her hair. I have been pretty sick for the last three weeks and my team mate Regan chose this awesome image for me- Thanks so much she was fun to colour.
