Simon Says Stamp an Show - Tim Holtz Inspired

The Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week is Tim Holtz inspired... How fun... I think I went a little overboard...


There is a little bit of everything going on here. :) The colors are mostly glimmer mist. I started with a doily with paper on one side and the front is gold finish. I flipped it over and laid it on white cardstock. Spritzed Daffodil, Key Lime Pie, and Turquoise blue over the doily which gave me two pieces of my card. The doily in the background and the background for my main images.

After that it was stamping and masking with a plastic die mask from the Tim Holtz birdcage die from Sizzix. The butterfly is from white crepe streamers I purchased as the store and sprayed with the same combination of Glimmer Mists.  The ribbon along the right side is from Tattered Angels with similar colors misted on it and scrunched up.

That is the highlights. Hope you are having a fun weekend.  I went to see my youngest cheer today. She looked so cute with her little outfit on and doing her cheers. Very fun!

Have a lovely Sunday.

  30. Hi~

    This is my first time visiting your blog. Your card from the Play Date Cafe Challenge brought me over...but this card...is just incredible! I love everything about it. The delicate doily and butterfly...and the solid birds...and I love the flourish to the left of the butterfly...it looks like it was cut out! This is a great piece of art. You culd see new things in it all afternoon.


    Thank you for sharing it!
