New Tim stuff - Believe you can.....

Tim Holtz Motivation 3 Stamp Set
New Tim stuff has arrived! Well one stamp set anyway - trying to control just how much I buy - but confess there is a lot I want! I started out planning to make some bright coloured tags with this new stamp set - Motivation 3 - but I ended up making a grungy card! Who knows how that happened.

After lots of painty projects recently it was a joy to get my distress inks out and get splattering! Over at Simon Says Stamp this week the theme is to use your favourite tool? Hard to decide between die cutting - so my big shot, ink and paint tools- so I included them all. 

Backgrounds - distress inks - tea dye, hickory smoke, ground expresso
Dies - Mixed Media 3 Thinlits and Artful Arrows Bigz
Stamps - Tim Holtz - Motivation 3 - stamped in archival
Arrows - grungeboard - painted with black/red/orange hues.
