Your favorite.........what??

Can you pick a favorite Tim Holtz stamp?? I know I can't!!

Knowing I needed to create for this challenge, I packed up some of my favorite goodies to take along with me to a scrapbook retreat this past weekend.

After two demos of Ranger products and kitting for two classes that I taught on Saturday, I finally sat down to create my tag.....stamped on the tag, poured on the embossing powder, turned on my heat tool.......poof a third of the lights went out.....oops!!! Then a few moments later, I turned it on again, and poof off they went I decided I needed to change my idea.

I created the flower using various fabric and flowers cut from the Tattered Floral die. I painted on Multi Medium, it makes the fabric stiff but yet flexible....AWESOME STUFF!!

I stamped with Pumice Stone Distress Ink on the tab using one of the stamps from the Floral Tattoo collection! LOVE IT!!

I inked around the edges of the tag and brushed on Perfect Pearl ~ Perfect Pearls. OHHH the shimmerness!! To finish the tag of I added some vintage lace and a hand written sentiment to Tim Holtz .........thank you for being an inspiration!!

As a bonus, just thought I would share the tags I created to demo at the event!

Aren't these leaves gorgeous....I used Tim's Falling Leaves Stamp collection, inked the leaves with various Distress Ink colors, spritzed with water and stamped. Love that technique!!

The focus of the second tag is grungepaper....I just love working with this stuff!!

So, fellow artists....dig through your stamps and try, if you may. to choose your favorite Tim Holtz stamp and create away.....I am looking forward to seeing your creations over at SIMON SAYS STAMP AND SHOW CHALLENGE BLOG who could win some scrappy goodies....who doesn't love free scrappy goodies????
