Happy Birthday Tim

It's T!ms birthday on the 7th so the final CC2C challenge over at Linda's is to create a card for T!m - here is mine for him:


The technique used is on page 42 of Book 1 - Spritz and Flick distress as I know T!m likes to use this technique a lot so I figure it's one of his favourites!

I used Black Soot, Vintage Photo, Fired Brick, Walnut Stain and Frayed Burlap inks and a Black Soot Marker.  There are lots of T!ms mini cogs on here as I know he loves metal, and I finished the name TIM off with a key, pen nib and spinners.  A Cuttlebug cog embossing folder was used for the background.  The Umbrella Man is inked with black soot and then highlighted on his hat, boots and umbrella with glossy accents.  The stamp on the background is Watch Gears by Hero Arts and then I also used T!ms ticket and die stamp along with the Going Somewhere "Enjoy the Journey" stamp where I used a stamp repositioner to change the first word to "enjoyin".  I finished the card off with some brown twine with a metal disc saying "Made for You" on it.

There we go - my inky card for the man of inks!

I would also just like to say hello to my newest follower Peg - thanks for joining me!

There was great excitement in our household again yesterday when my phone cover on the previous post was tweeted by Nokia_UK! how cool is that.

Thanks for looking - Inky Fingers from Solihull
