Tim Holtz, Happy Birthday Tim!


   I wish I'd had longer to make something more elaborate for Tim Holtz's birthday  on January 7th - and seeing the fabulous creations appearing on http://studiol3.blogspot.com/  I'm a bit shy about posting this with them. I started with a piece of Coredinations Whitewash card, distressed, 'kiss' and 'ghost' stamped it (as I'd learnt during the 12 Tags of Christmas) embossing several times along the way. I used a T!m stamp for the 3 gentlemen and had a bit of fun giving them party hats... naturally T!m, being the birthday boy, got a  crown. which I embossed in copper. I cut them out (probably unwisely as I left my specs at work today) and die cut 3 Quickutz balloons and added his name.  I hand wrote the sentiment 'King for a day' with an embossing pen. It's prettier and more textured than in the photo, my camera is very simple and the light just bounced back in the piccy
I am entering this onto the Grungy Monday challenge/celebration of  HRM Tim's birthday
