New challenge starts today - Anything by T!m

I'm sure our new challenge will be a popular one for all you T!m fans!!  

For this challenge you need to include anything designed by T!m Holtz, his stamps, distress inks, alteration dies, embossing folders, ideology etc.   

Our design team have made some amazing things for this challenge so do pop over there by clicking HERE

I hope you will be able to join us in this challenge and as and added bit of fun I will be offering some T!m blog candy on this blog at some point during the next fortnight so please call back to join in with that.

So, to my card for the challenge...I used a number of distress inks on the card then embossed it with the Cuttlebug folder Leafy Branch before inking the raised pattern lightly with aged mahogany DI.

I distressed the edges of the card too to give some texture.

I embossed the blank canvas stamp from our new Framie 5 stamps with gold ep before inking with wild honey, rusty hinge and a little aged mahogony DI.

I embossed the wording (T!ms) with Moonglow Midnight Teal Obsidian ep before again inking with various DI 

I hope you have all had some of the gorgeous sunshine this week, it is very welcome isn't it!! Spring has definitely sprung:)

Have a great weekend
