How About a Little Bit of Ink?

It is Wednesday and that means it is time for a new challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!  This week, the design team is using some super fun goodies from Tim Holtz/Ranger!  As for the challenge, well, it's ANYTHING GOES time!  Make something fabulous over the holiday weekend and link it up!

Vintage Santa Christmas

I challenged myself to go a bit outside of my usual box for this one.  Since we were encouraged to use Tim Holtz products, I checked out my stash and pulled out a GORGEOUS stamp I've had around for a bit and then decided that inking was simply in order.  I mean, who can be inspired by Tim Holtz and NOT lay on the ink?!  LOL!  I 'colored' my image with distress inks!  SO FUN!  Of course, his beard is shimmering with Wink of Stella clear because I pretty much am having an affair with that thing.  Just sayin'.  I accented his hat with a bit of enamel accents, too!  SO MUCH FUN!!!!

Merry Christmas Santa

I also added some of that fabulous film strip ribbon from Tim Holtz.  I LOVE that stuff!  I don't use it often, but it is just SO much fun!!!  Plus... it totally comes in an little adorable tin and I love that.  Good stuff, folks.  Good stuff, I tell ya!  You can find links to ALL of the super fun goodies I used on this card below.

And, as per usual, the absolutely fabulously generous Heidi is offering one lucky participant (chosen at random) a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store!  Happy Happy to YOU!!!!!  

Have A Happy!!!
