I decided to have a play with something a bit Tim Holtz-y and this is what I came up with - a grungy (well grungy for me) easel card. All my papers are from a stack I bought ages ago and had just kept in the drawer for stroking. They are Basic Grey papers, Boxer collection. There is only one sheet of each paper so it was very hard for me to cut into them, lol. The dark blue paper was run through the Cuttlebug with Tim Holtz Alterations Texture Fades Retro Circles. It sort of cracked the paper so that the white shows through. You can't really see in the picture but the blue is actually patterned. I even stamped on the cream zig-zag paper with my Tim Holtz Components Time stamp. The little sentiment on the oval (cut with Nesties) is from PaperArtsy Clocks 5 set and is held in place with a little key brad and the sentiment on the base is from Amy R Stamps Birthday Sentiments. The gromets came free with my Big Bite and although I've had them over a year this is the first time I've used them too. (No, what ever made you think I am a horder!!!).
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Basic Grey Challenge - More than one fold (papers are Basic Grey)
Telen's Place - Embalming (had papers and gromits so long they may well have been embalmed, lol)
Sassy Studio Designs - Fancy folds
The Outlawz - Favourite sentiment
