T is for Tim

I have made a start on the 'T' for 'The Hobby Room'.  I couldn't resist doing all things Tim Holtz. It was inevitable really. I started off spraying the 'T' with (not a Tim product) but Cosmic shimmers, red and green based colours. Which gave the letter a rather nice rusty look, and looked great on its own, but then I started to stamp and embellish it. Us crafter's can't leave anything alone! I wrapped the letter in a metallic blue florist wire, and fitted everything else in around it.

I used Creative Expressions screw top brads on the corners. I snipped off the brad backs with some wire cutters because I didn't want to pierce the letter. I used some Journeyman Tissue Tape, and distressed it with some Broken China ink. I used some black Glitz It glitter glue and spooned some beads into the glue. And a sprinkle of gold glitter. I cut up a blank ticket and stamped the 'enjoy the journey' stamp on it with black Archival Ink. 

I used Tim's mini branch and leaf set on the bottom, then put some cogs and a spinner on top, as well as some glue and beads.

You can really see the lovely cosmic shimmers of the letter base here, as well as a wooden bingo counter, distressed of course with Walnut Stain distress ink and the copper tassel. The bingo counter actually is my age too. shhh keep that one quiet.

I stamped Tim's butterflies onto a piece of butterfly embossed Kanban Card and snook it under the blue wire. Then I attached the inspire tag with the blue wire too.

Crafting like this is just addictive, and hard to stop embellishing. I'm looking forward to doing the next one.
