Simon Says Stamp Challenge

Morning folks - sunny and bright again - just what we need to lift the spirits!!

This is my first time entering the Simon Says Stamp Challenge challenge after finding out about it from a lovely bloggy bud..

Now the theme is Tim Holtz Inspired and there is a fantastic prize up for grabs, non other than a SIGNED piece of Tim Holtz artwork - Wheee!!

So out came all the TH products, and my Tag was born!!! LOl

I used a TH stamp Como 17 - Blackbird, Distress Inks in Fired Brick, Faded Jeans and Black Soot, the sentiment is Rhonna Farrer and I used VErsafine ink to stamp it. I embossed the right hand side of the tag in a diamond shape. Added TH spinners and sprockets. It turned out quite a dark atmospheric tag although it looks a lot lighter in the photo..
