Some Tim-spiration

OH WOW!  I know I said this last week...but now way did I think I would get an entry finished for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show...this week's challenge is Tim Holtz inspiration.  I've been fighting the battle between my love for the fabulous Ms. Vecchi...and my adoration for all things Sir Holtz!  As much as they share with each other and use the same products...I personally think there are distinct differences!  Maybe it's just me!  However...I will say that their stamps (and Tim's Sizzix dies) work so well together!  Love them all! is my entry:

This picture does not show the lace very well at the bottom...kind of blends in...but there is a strip of lace adhered to the bottom edge of the tag that I inked with a dab of Frayed Burlap to kill the starkness of the white.  Now off to get even more inky and messy...gotta love the GRUNGE!  Smooches!

Supplies:  Distress ink - Peeled Paint, Frayed Burlap, Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky, Wild Honey, Walnut Stain, Pumice Stone; distress stickles - Walnut Stain; Stamps - all by Stampers Anonymous - Tim Holtz and Studio 490; Grungeboard, Grungepaper; Distress Embossing Powder - Antique Linen; Distress Embossing Medium; idea-ology: foliage and film strip ribbon;  Adirondack Dabbers - Juniper, Gold; Paper - Jenny Bowlin
