Tim Holtz Retro Type Bigz Die

l


Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week we are challenging you to add some texture by:

DRY EMBOSSING

As it’s the first Monday of the month we are showcasing a brand/company. This week we are all using some fabulous products from Tim Holtz. You don’t have to use them to join in with the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.


The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $25 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz  on the challenge blog post! 
You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

This week we are welcoming back the lovely Alison Bomber aka Words and Pictures  into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven't visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat!




I cut the typewriter from some Graphic 45 Chipboard and proceeded to dip into puddles of  Peacock Feathers and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Inks, drying between color changes to prevent mud ;-) I love these colors together don't you!  I then popped in some Ebony Crystal Drops into the 'keys' to add some shine, looks fab IRL!  For the background I spritzed and splattered some inks and then when it was dry I used the embossing folder to ass the design and then rubbed a little Ocean Teal Gilding Polish over the top (smells lovely ;-)) 
I then used a scrap of paper, inked with the walnut ink and then added the  Tiny Type  birthday sentiment.


Thanks for looking :-) 

So now it's YOUR turn!

I'm in love with the rusty patina you created for the typewriter and all the cogs and loops in the background remind me of when the typewriter ribbon used to come all unwound and get everywhere! Love the stitched edging too - so cool for that extra touch of texture.
