"Go Figure" for That's Crafty Challenge Blog

Hi Everyone
Today we start another of our fortnightly challenges over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog and our theme is
"Go Figure"
For me it makes me think of numbers, so my inspiration piece for you this fortnight features numbers, in particular the number 13.

For those of you that follow my blog you will know that I just love these recently released stamps from Tim Holtz. I have used one of the images from the "Evolution" set.
Starting with a piece of Tim's watercolour card I stencilled Tim's arrows using distress inks. All colouring has been done with distress inks and all stamping is using Tim's stamps. all of the embellishments added are Tim's Idea-ology pieces and stickers. I then mounted onto a That's Crafty 4" x 6" greyboard and added a little bulldog clip that I gave a rust effect these clips also allow you to hang your piece.
I'm sure you'll love what the rest of the design team have created all of which you can see HERE
With the Bank Holiday weekend nearly upon us and the usual bank holiday weather for the UK forcast, rain!! Why not come and play along with us, if not, you do have 2 weeks to join in with us. As always with our challenge, one randomly chosen winner will receive a £20 voucher to spend online at That's Crafty online store.
Thanks for stopping by

  1. How do I love this? Let me count the ways... brilliant use of the new stamp, amazing colour tones, fabulous variations on the number 13 (especially love that altered game piece - looks so cool), and the rusty pin board clip - altogether so much energy and movement, so dynamic. Yup - love it!
