All Things Tim at The Stamp Man Challenge blog

Good afternoon all
Yes, it's a new challenge over at The Stamp Man Challenge blog and this time Jill has chosen one of her favourite subjects; Tim Holtz!
My favourite too so I enjoyed this one. I know a lot of you are big fans as well so do pop on over and join in the fun.
There are great inspirational projects from the team on the blog and here is mine in more detail.

Using a wooden box I painted it with bronze paint and aged with blue patina. This gives a really interesting effect. I also added some gilding wax for added shine.
I used Tim Holtz Mini Classics plate to stamp flourishes around the box and taking a pile of bronze UTEE created the medallion with the clock stamp to decorate the top. The paint is so gorgeous I did not want to cover it up too much!
Inside I painted it black and added another stamped UTEE embellishment to the top inside lid.
I then made a little journal/notebook to fit inside. The covers are stamped with various stamps from the plate and I used distress ink in Faded Jeans, Worn Lipstick and Chipped Sapphire.
I used glossy accents to highlight the lion.
The inside cover.
Hope you all have a fab day and a lovely weekend.
Be blessed in your creativity today.

What a great home for a mini journal. Love the box and book, great colours and stamped images and the UTEE embellishments are fabulous.
Have a wonderful weekend.

This is great! I love the way you have made the box beautiful in itself and the embellishment perfect but not overwhelming the box. I didn't put that very well but you know what I mean!
