It's Stamp Man challenge blog time, hurray!!! This fortnight is bound to be a popular one- it's anything Tim Holtz!!! Here's mine......can you tell what it was?
10 sparkle points if you said a moisturiser pot. It's made out of white, slightly translucent plastic, plus....it smells nice- bonus!
I swiped it all over with alcohol inks (meadow, terracotta and lettuce), then stamped the lid and sides with text and foliage stamps (Tim Holtz Shabby Chic).
OK, now I have an admission to make..... I know all of you Sir Tim aficionados out there are grunge paper/board fans but I've not tried it. I know, I know, stop tutting at me.... it just seemed expensive and I couldn't quite see the point. Although I had at some point acquired some, cut with the Tattered florals die.
So, Distress Inks (Peeled paint, Mustard seed, Spiced marmalade) and more stamping (Russet archival ink) later and I'm sold. I get it. You can all stop looking smug now.....;)
Ooh, and my absolute favourite thing about this is the little screw in the middle of the flower. I think I have a thing for salvaged metal...... this little half sheared off screw was just sitting waiting to be picked up and glued in.
Actually, it's recycled stuff all round- the string round the edge was originally round some packaging. So, an ethically sound project all round, yippee.
There's lots more gorgeous DT inspiration on the challenge blog, so hop over for a look, and show us your projects!
I'm entering this into the Stampotique Designers Challenge- to use flowers.
