Linda has started the Grungy Monday challenges which will take inspiration from Tim Holtz' techniques. This week's was to take inspiration from Tim's tag #10 from Christmas 2008. I created my interpretation for Spring and at the same time worked in lots of gold for this week's Sunday Stamper challenge over on Hels blog.
Tim Holtz idea-ology line; Perfect Pearls mist 'Hierloom Gold', Cosmic Shimmer 'Gold Mint'; Distress Inks: Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Forest Moss, Frayed Burlap; Distress Powder: Peeled Paint; Archival Ink: Sepia; Stamps: Tim Holtz 'Spring Sprung'; Perfect Pearls 'Pearl' powder; Prima flowers; Cuttlebug embossing folder: D'vine Swirl on some gold paper inked with Alcohol Ink 'Citrus' and I used the same on the snap used as the flower centre; ribbons from stash.
I was interrupted part way through making this by an elderly neighbour asking if she could look round our garden to see if the plants she'd shared with me last year had grown: Fortunately, spring has arrived and I managed to find proof that most are alive and well. Just a shame the weeds always grow faster!
