As some of you may have seen- last week I entered the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog challenge for the first time. I enjoyed it so much I couldn't resist checking out their challenge for this week... Simon Says Stamp and Show- An Idea-Ology Bonanza! When it comes to Tim Holtz products, I am a huge fan of the Idea-ology line. I know a huge part of this line are all the fantastic little trinkets and embellishments (which I use quite often), but his paper is also part of this line. And if you know me, you know I LURVE paper!
For this project I used the Retro Grunge Paper Stash and wanted to try my hand at a little bit of paper sculpting which isn't something I normally do. I used my Tattered Floral die for the flower and my Hanging Sign die for the flourishes coming out from beneath the flower.
For the bookplate I used the Tag and Bookplates die with an aluminum soda can then used various alcohol inks to coordinate it with my paper. The vintage word stamp is from the Wendy Vecchi Collectible Art stamp set.
The entire piece was accented with Vintage Photo Distress Ink- the edges of the box and also the edges of the flower.
