Its The Little Things!

Sorry I haven't been around for a while lately (again!) -  I have not been feeling too well but am just making the challenge over at Artful Times which is 'in the style of Tim Holtz.  I am rushing this post as there is not much time to enter and my computer is on a go slow - aaaaargh!

The background is Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon and Picked Raspberry Distress inks smooshed on my craft sheet with water then the card dragged through, dried then dabbed in the remaining ink.  I stamped with the same inks using Creative Expressions Chicken Wire and a Prima script stamp.  All the black is Versafine - the swirls are from Tim Holtz Urban Chicks and the sentiment is from his Good Thoughts set.  The die is again Tim Holtz - Honeycomb Framework.  The little stamps are from various stamp makes and sets and I cut card coloured the same out of the honeycomb die, stamped each image then double embossed each piece with clear embossing powder and versafine before sticking into the spaces of the black die cut.

I will leave the description at that as I don't want to miss the deadline.

If you have a chance, please pop over to Artful Times - its a fabulous challenge blog!
