is the theme of this weeks card challenge at Scrapbook Sisters.

I had to have a go with my Tim Holtz dies. Scrapbook Sisters is receiving a lot of deliveries in the shop now full of  Tims goodies.

cards 092I have used his new dress form die with cotton reel and buttons and his old faithful the tattered florals. The dress form, reel and buttons were cut from Grunge paper and inked with distress inks. Another form was cut from patterned paper and the stand section cut off and stamped over with a grid stamp.

The flowers were cut from patterned paper. I wanted a bronze embellishment to go in the centres of the flowers but couldn’t find anything in my stash so I resorted to swiping a silver jewellery finding across a Versamark ink pad  and dipping it into bronze embossing powder and heating up. 

cards 089

The smaller petals of the large  flower were formed by cutting  two tiny scalloped  circles from a nestibility ( didn’t have a scalloped punch). Misted with water to dampen down and then scrunched up. When the paper dries it retains its shape and hardens off a little.

cards 097The sentiment stamped onto the card and over stamped with the grid stamp. I thoroughly enjoyed making this card as I love all things Tim! I love making dimensional cards. I don’t seem to be able to create anything flat now that I’m happy with.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to have a go and enter the challenge.
