Tim Holtz Technique Tag Travelling Travis

Isn't Tim Holtz's new website great? I love it!

Over at Studio L3, the  'A Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge' has  begun, celebrating   techniques from Tim Holtz's new book. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with! I used the foam technique on the original grunge flower die. Well, Travelling Travis only travelled part way onto this tag  because I liked my inky background so much, I didn't want to cover it up too much.

I used only 2 colours, Sakura gold and glittery silver pens.This is a really fun technique and I think I will use it again and again.. Out of respect to Tim, we have been asked not to detail our making on this one.

My exciting news is that I have won $30 for my entry into the Stampotique Designers Challenge - So I'm doing the Happy Dance AGAIN because I love their quirky stamps and so does my gorgeous 14 year old arty daughter Els. Who knew stamping would turn out to be so exciting? This is the second thing I've been fortunate enough to win something this  week - one of my Tim Holtz tags was chosen to win the Fashionable Stamping Challenge.

Blogging has certainly opened up a new world for me as well as improving my stamping abilities in so many ways.

Over at Bloggers challenge, the theme this week is Black/White (or Vanilla) and a splash of colour.  My splash of colour is gold:   Bloggers Challenge

I am so glad Travis only travelled part way! To have covered up the stunning flowers would have been a shame. And how clever of you to use the sentiment as her "dress."

It's awe-shome (as my kid's say). I am inspired not only by the truth in the sentiment, but the sheer design and texture. A fabulous creation and I'm joining in on the happy dance with you. Congrats on your winnings. :)
