The Stampman Challenge - Anything by Tim

I normally try to make something for this challenge because I find their DT so inspiring. What a great theme - Anything by Tim. I decided to go very simple this month as I have limited time for crafting.

"The world of reality"
I used Distress Inks and a mask ( Gate - Tattered Angels) to create a soft distressed backgound on white card stock. Then I over stamped with various images - the tree branches and birds are Tim Holtz stamps as is the quote. I love this quote as I think it sums up what Tim does so well, that we are all in awe of his creative talent.

To add a bit of depth I stamped the final layer of plants in gold and embossed with Detail Gold powder.
There are some fabulous samples on The Stamp Man Blog. Be sure to check them out.
