ABC 'Q' for Quotations Challenge :-)

As soon as I saw the Q for Quotations theme on the ABC Challenge I thought I should go 'Tim Holtz' :-) I have never made tags before so thought it was about time I gave them a whirl :-)

We are being sponsored for this fortnight by Cute Daisy May
the lucky winner will have a choice of fabulous digi downloads :-)

We are also welcoming a new design team member ,, Sandie to our jolly group :-)Big waves to Sandie :-) I am sure you will soon settle in and get to know us all ,, phew ,, I am not the newbie anymore !!! Thanks Sandie :-) xx



I used my new Tim Holtz goodies I have just bought some tags, I coloured them with distress inks, spun sugar, stormy sky, black soot and antique linen. I then stamped images mainly from the new urban set and sprinkled perfect pearls, then sprayed with water to allow the ink to bleed underneath ,, as demo'd on the Tim Holtz blog.
For the first one I smothered a grungeboard butterfly with picket fence crackle paint and left it to dry , then inked it with distress inks. The quotation I used is also on the Tim Holtz urban set. I then added some metal flowers and a Muse charm and a bit of ribbon to finish. the second one is almost the same ,, just different stamps form the same set and I added a clock and some decoupaged butterflies. I added some crystal stickles to finish :-) I also used a Martha Stewart punch for the lower edges :-) Everything I used is available in the Simon Says Stamp store :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some amazing creations for you to see so hop on over to the ABC Challenge to see them :-)
DT Helen has also made a fabulous tutorial on a side step card which you can see on the ABC Tutorial Challenge blog :-)
