Simon says stamp and show what makes you happy

Well that has to be pretty easy to answer; anything Tim really! Hence this little album. Pretty much all my Tim Holtz stamps were used. No one elses got a look in! I made two mini albums in a tin. I set myself the challange to not use any of the brown tones that usually creep in so everything is pastel tones distress. I used post it notes to mask the places where photo's will go and then just had fun.
The top has been embossed with a Tim Holtz texture fade onto metal finish and painted around the edges with Ferro graphite. Coloured with alcohol inks and the tag made using ATC stamp, the tattered floral die (layers of acetate, grunge and doilie)
I think they are great, hope you do too!
