Everything Lord Tim Tag!!!!

I created this tag using some of his techniques, inks, rock candy crackle, new embossing folders,stamp, embellishments and dies. I didn't know whether I would get this in since I just had surgery on my thumb last thursday but I did it. I did not want to miss this challenge. Hope you enjoy it and thanks for looking. I didn't put in all the ingredients but its late and my hand is tired.

Silver Linings...

Silver Linings...

Welcome to my blog, blog I was very excited about this challenge, having to use Wendy Vecchi stamps cause they are just so YuMMY!!!! I've just started dabbling in altered art and this is my second piece, I just adore the medium. This was inspired by watching a tutorial on paper dolls. I loved it cause it brought me back to being a child and playing with these, and so it reminded me to stay a bit childlike where all dreams are possible and no matter what, all clouds have silver linings, hence the title.

For this I used Obviously Wendy's stamps, Autumn Leaves, Paper Inspirations, Hero Arts, and Hampton Art stamps. I also used a paper doll template by blog, Copics, Stickles, Peridot and Amethyst embossing powders by Stampendous, clear embossing powder by Ranger, Distress Inks by Ranger, Perfect Pearls, and assortment of acrylic paints, Matte medium, Super Seal, Barcode Font by 1001 fonts and Glossy Accents.
 I do hope you all will enjoy this as much as I did creating this. I have seen so many wonderful entries I couldn't imagine having to make a choice. Good luck to all and have fun creating, that's what its all about.
