Simon Says....Tim Holtz

Our challenge this week at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog we are challenging you to use your Tim Holtz goodies to create a project! Tim Holtz is a good friend of Simon Says Stamp so as a tribute to The Great One himself, we are honouring him with a challenge. My card uses a variety of Tim Holtz products: I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks (walnut stain & tattered rose). The flourish is a Grungeboard shape, which I inked with Salmon alcohol ink, then distressed with Walnut Stain Distress ink. I used pink Distress Stickles on her flowers and a Philosophy Tag.




Thanks for looking!! Don't forget to head on over to the challenge blog and enter to win a $25 Gift Certificate to Simon Says Stamp (where you can buy MORE Tim Holtz goodies!!!!)


ETA: Over at the challenge blog, they have upped the ante......IF we get over 100 participants, Heidi is going to give away a SIGNED PIECE OF TIM HOLTZ's artwork......omg....to me that is worth more than a Picaso!!!! LMAO So seriously, you HAVE TO join the challenge this week - even if you use some distress ink or distress stickles...it counts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND, I heard through the grapevine that TIM himself is watching the Challenge Blog so get over there and get your card loaded to show off your FABULOUS talents to the GREAT ONE himself!!!! (Hi Tim!!!)

Hey there Chris! Love this card and how you distressed the grungeboard! Pink and brown goes together so well and that Tilda is so cute! Your distressing is excellent...I need to practice in that area! Hugs, Cami
