P is for ........

It's time for another challenge over at the ABC challenge and this time we would like to see 'P' is for ! The sponsor for this week's challenge is Kraftin' Kimmie who have kindly donated 2 stamps of the winner's choice. Just remember not to combine your entry with more than 4 other challenges to be in with a chance to win.

If you have visited before you'll know that pink is not my favourite colour so to compensate I've grunged it up a little. For my card I've used my new set of Tim Holtz stamps that I picked up last week at his workshop. I saw these on his blog and knew they were a 'must' have ! I've blended Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet DI over white card stock then stamped the images with Coffee Archival ink.

The flowers are made using the mesh ribbon that is also by Tim Holtz and I've cut it in half then rubbed Walnut Stain DI across the edge then rolled it up. I've stuck it to a punched flower with silicone and rubbed Walnut DI around the edge. The coathanger paper clip is one of the things that was left over from the project we made at Tim's workshop.

I did warn you there would be more Tim Holtz ! There will definitely more to come too, I absolutely love his new range of stamps and can't wait to get my hands on some of his new dies too !
