First Challenge for The Stamp Man !

This is my first DT card for The Stamp Man, which I am very excited about joining ! This challenge is all about 'Tim' at Christmas and we would like to see Christmas cards using Tim Holtz products and if you're short of the odd thing or two, make sure you check out the fab selection at The Stamp Man.

For my card I used this gorgeous image from the Tim Holtz Santa's Wish stamp set. The main image has been stamped with Timber Brown Stazon and I've used a little Fired Brick DI to paint the holly berries. I've cut the image out using Labels One Nestabilities and then used Frayed Burlap DI around the edge. The side panel has been made using the holly stamp from the same set again using Timber Brown Stazon and stamping twice before re-inking to give a two tone look.

The background piece is made using Frayed Burlap DI but I've then gone round the edge with Vintage Photo DI to add a little definition. I've paper pierced the corners and found this oddment of ribbon in my stash (which I had to iron before I could use it !)

I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.

Thanks for looking
