Channeling Tim Holtz

Hi Everyone,
Today I am channeling Tim Holtz.....Well, not really. But, I did make a Tim Holtz inspired project for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. And that means vintagey, distressy, and lots of die cuts. This is a little art piece that I will display on an easel. Here it is:

I stamped the writing on cs and added die cuts, and DP. I distressed it all with ink and sprays. I mounted it on a piece of plain old cardboard and attached with some wire.
Materials List:
Stamp: Artistic Outpost
CS: Sahara Sand (base) from Stampin' Up, Tan Texture from DCWV, Kraft
DP: Cosmo Cricket-Tag and border, DCWV - Flowers
Dies: Tim Holtz and Sizzix
Distress Inks: Ranger
Smooch Spray
Glimmer Mist Spray.

I added some detail shots, of course, so you can see the Tim Holtzyness of it all.

This piece is also entered in the Stamping Vacation Rustic Challenge.
Hope you enjoy your dose of Tim Holtz for today...but, who can ever get enough???
Have a great day!!
Love ya,
