My entry for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week. What a great challenge this one was. To make something in the style of Tim Holtz. Well we all know no one can do it like Tim but it sure was fun to try.  I had purchased these rather large tags in Longmont, CO when I was at a stamp store last summer and never used them so decided to use one for this challenge - it gives you a lot of surface to work with and I seem to need that.  I made the little charm by using the tinted vision fragment technique from Tim's book "A Compendium of Curiosities".  This is a great book to learn his techniques.  I made the flower out of grungepaper.  I have so many of his products - I just need to start using them.  This challenge was a great way to get going with it.
