If you want to have some fun, try playing along with the talented (and I do mean talented) ladies of
A Vintage Journey. The theme of their very first challenge is Anything Tim.
What's so Timmy about this tag you may ask. The flying birds and the butterfly are Tim Holtz stamps. All coloring was done with distress markers and or ink pads. This tag fits into this month's tag challenge over at Tim Blog. I did try most of the techniques - well some of the techniques. I tried to do the smudging but after I stamped, the image would not smudge. The bigger flying bird I stamped by using several colors on the stamp but I did not put enough ink on the stamp. Now the exciting part, I used a Tim Holtz stencil and did exactly what he said to do with that handy dandy blower thingy. It was really quite fun. What I learned is, I need to use more ink so the stencil design will show. One more thing - I used a metal word band at the bottom and attached with the little Tim Holtz stapler. The band says - encourage your hopes, not your fears.
I am entering my tag into the following challenges:
