This is what I came up with :

I must tell you that I really had fun with the challenge several layers....and what I came up with....I altered a photophrame....the phrame was allmost white and has an "old" look,


I did the same with the picture inside the phrame, used the copper colored embossingpowder and Glimmermist from Tattered Angels to give the picture that "extra" look.

I played with Distress inks to make it look even older....the flowers are all handmade and have several layers, I mixed colors Peeled Paint, Dusty Concord Vintage Photo, Fired Brick and to give them some special looks I used the perfect pearls from Tim Holz and the Distress embossing ink with the embossing powder on the phrame and on the picture inside the phrame.




....the leaves are from the Martha Stewart Punch. On top of it all I sprayed the Glimmermists...



Made some pearls with the perlenpen and the swirls are from my own stash...the same with the headpins.

I hope to see ya all soon on the blog of Simon Says Stamp & Show and I am sure you will have a lot of fun with the several layers from this week....and while your at it check out the AMAZING projects and creations my teamies made......it will blow you away ....I promise....

Simon Says Stamp and Show, Your Lord Tim of Holtz Style

Hiya ladies, so it is Monday.....and YESSSS it is time for another fabulous Vintage Challenge at
This week the challenge will be......
Your Lord Tim of Holtz Style....

so make your own project, a tag, card, or whatever you like....and make your own Tim of Holtz Style......
So I did mine...

So this time I made 2 projects.....really had fun with it .....I made this flower......I cut it from a piece of Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage paperpack....can you believe that those colors were a bit pinkisch at first?? well not anymore....cause I worked on the papers with the Distress inks and now the color of the papers are a brownish with a glitter in it....so the glimmermist was used too....a few punches from the Retro Flower and a button with some scrapperflosh that was originally white.....not anymore......

I am sure you can make something like this too.....cause if I can make it .....you definitly can make your own Tim Holtz Style....I am sure of it....see I did not have any experience with making a Tag.....but I know now that it is a lot of fun......with the year on the bottom of the Tag I can never forget when I made this tag hihihi
So..I used a Tag...used a lot of distress inks and glimmermist added grungeboard from Tim Holtz and placed the Hero Arts stamp with the little birdie on it and a few swirls.....worked on those too......did cut out a heart nestie and placed that one on top.....a selfmade flower and for the fun of it I placed a ribbon on top....I never knew that it is that much fun to play with different colors of distress inks....spray the colors a little and use another color with it and then dry it up a little.....and add another color....wow....so much fun.....

The second thingie I made was a little booklet.....with this yep you quessed it right.....with a selfmade flower.....just love how this one turned out...also distressed the papers, shaped the flowers and used the glimmermists.....and made a little pearl on top with the perlenpen....The papers I have used are the fabulous Vintage Idea-ology Paperpack Vintage Shabby some ausumn colors in there and really like it a lot.


this little booklet is the story of my life you could say.....so first there is this little girl....

And this little girl grows up and the butterfly flies away.....into the big world......

And yep this girl finds her way into to world.....and finds her love.....

And this love says YES to her......so they live happily ever after.......

And this is the front of the little booklet.....I used the same stamp from Hero Arts, so that the 2 projects belong together......there are a few more pages into the little booklet where I can write some words into......for now they are still empty......every page is worked on with distress inks and glimmermist......a few ribbons and rope on the rings....and my booklet is finished.......
I hope that you will come on over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog and join into the fun ladies and gents......cause it is so much fun....and while you are at it, check out the fantabouls creations of my Fellow DT members......wohooooo it is really AMAZING what they made.....

And this is the other flower on the other side of my project...placed some lace underneith......

These hearts are from the Nestabillities I cut them in my cuttlebug...and yep also colored the hearts with Tim Holz Distress inks...and placed a little rope on the heart and a few headpins on top.

Now I hear ya all thinking what in the blazes name did she make......hihihih...in a minute you'll know...
Well this became a very special project for me....
