It's Monday evening for me so it must be day time for those of you who reside in the Northern Hemisphere lol. Today's challenge over on 365 Cards was to make your card using your favourite manufacturer. So if you know me you will know that I would choose anything that The Timster (Tim Holtz) masterminds. I think he is THE MOST outstanding creative man that our field has ever seen. My husband thinks I am in love with him lol. I think I am old enough to be his mother. . . no scrap that maybe his older sister hehehe. I FINALLY got my Ranger order today after waiting for over eight weeks. Long story.. . briefly my daughter, Ash and I went halves in getting the whole range of Distress Inks and the craft mats, the whole range of alcohol inks, applicators etc but it has taken us a while to gather the funds together hence the eight weeks. Today they came!!! We were too excited for sure. So in honour of the man himself I created my card using Distress Inks and my very own (and only one) Tim Holtz stamp set which I just won on ebay. Vintage all the way for me baby!! That's not to say that I won't be creating other cards as well but I have been waiting soooo long for my stuff to arrive that I will be stampin', creatin' and doin' the happy dance for a long while to come. Oh did I tell you I was excited. . . .yes I think I did but just in case you didn't read it earlier I had better say it again. . .I am sooooo excited about having my distress inks, I could die happy now lmao.
Now onto the card itself. As I said I used Tim Holtz Lost and Found stamp set from Stampers Anonymous with some of my tea-dyed lace and just in the top right hand corner there is an acrylic overlay from a vintage set I have had for a while and now I have had the chance to use some of it as I thought it suited perfectly. The way the image came out is the way it is supposed to come out apparently. I took eight jolly photos tonight trying to get a good one but every image seemed to be blurry and I am too tired to go get the manual to find out why so I chose the best of a bad lot. Anyway that's my creation for this Monday. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else creates.
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
