Anything by T!m challenge

It's time for a new challenge over on our challenge blog, it's another Anything by T!m theme!  

For any newbies, Tim Holtz has designed many great products for us to use for our crafting.  If you haven't seen Tim's products before, you will find many of them HERE, just click on the ink pad and explore!!  It'll open up a whole new world of crafty bits and pieces for you:-)

Our Design Team have come up with really awesome projects for this theme.  Even if you are not able to enter this time, you really MUST see the work they have all put into this fortnights challenge, all such beautiful projects.

I started this technique board ages ago and finally put some finishing touches to it for the challenge.

I used the following products

7- Gypsies stickers - in shop
Rock Candy

Now for some close ups, sorry the photos are not brilliant

I was really pleased to get great crackle from the rock candy!!

You definitely need to pile the rock candy on to get the effect!

I had to include some stamped UTEE too

And, the gadget gears were a must have

Yes, there is quite an assortment of bits on this hanging but the whole point was to play with techniques and I certainly enjoyed playing!!!

I'm hoping blogger auto posts this for me as Ian and I will be on our way to Doncaster at noon for the Summer Crafting show at the race course.  Please come and say hello if you are at the show!

Have a great weekend, whatever you are doing.
