Well this is something completely different, the challenge on Simon Says Stamps Challenge is for Distressing and since Heidi loves Tim Holtz stuff and she would like us to showcase Tim stuff. I'm hyperventilating just writing this.
So I started with choosing the background paper I wasn't up to making my own, I then distress round the edges with a blending tool which is great till you need to change the pad and having to accept inking fingers are the order of the day.
I have the Life's Possibilities clear stamp and I used the clock but I needed a bigger one so I have a set of clocks from Kelly Panacci and I used the largest one as well. For one of the clock handles I used a nestablities that look like clock hands and grungepaper my poor Cuttlebug wasn't happy with me so probably won't try it again, the hands were than duly coloured attached with a brad and glossy accented.
Sentiment came of the Kelly stamp set and grungeboard shape. The man looked lost so I found the word atc stamp from Crafty individuals and covered in the rock candy crackle. The man I stuck on with silicone glue to give him dimension and his brolly is covered in rock cand stickles. Phew that just left the crackle paint corners and MS border punch.
I do have one complaint, I've watch Tim videos and I watch the fabulous Leandra and Jean Hardy do they take HOURS to make one creation, think I shall stick to my cute cards less stress.
Of course you don't have to take Distressing this far, I think I was trying to prove something to myself and trust me it out of my system now.
So don't forget to check out the rest of the DT and there $25 dollar prize.
