The Umbrella Man Playing the Numbers!

Wow, we are hitting up four challenges and loving it! Grungy Monday #4 at Studio L-3 challenges us to use Tim Holtz technique, using Texture Fades and Distress.  I used Mr. Holtz new ATC Umbrella Man and stamped the raised area with this new reverse stamp set!  Love how that worked.  Shaded outer area of the dude and edges, then die cut using my new Tim Holtz ATC die!  Love the photo corners, which also had the reverse numbers!  The powder embossed numbers on the ATC are also from one of Tim's new stamp releases.  The Texture Fade Bingo, was embossed, inked with clear emboss ink, red and browns DI and then clear embossed.  I then went in with two colors of Perfect Pearls that I mixed and sprayed, along with a couple of sprays of Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold.  Wiped off the excess.  We have several layers of paper, inks, mists and even embossing powders, so we are happy to visit The Artistic Stamper for their Layers challenge. Bella Creations has us using an umbrella, Gingersnap Creations GC98 has us using our Mists and Simon Says Stamp and Show wants a Lord Tim of Holtz Technique and so it is!

Once again I want to thank all of you who take the time to visit and comment.  You are very appreciated and from time to time, someone is going to get a surprise from me as a thank you.

Great card and absolutely creative way to make it fit soooo many challenges!!! Good for you!! I did this week's L3 grungy monday challenge, so I guess I could use it for Simon Says also but someone has to get it first before I can post it. Take care my friend and I just love your sense of creativity!!!

I love anything Tim... and you did a fantastic job using his products! I have one of his "umbrella man" sweatshirt type jackets, and the stamp, but not the ATC embossers... yet! I took his crafting cruise in the fall of '09. He is awesome and he would be proud of your work. ;>}
