Playing!

Today I decided would be a great day to play with some of my newer "Tim" stamps and have some inky fun!  So working from three stamps sets, this is what happened!
The "Artful Tools" were stamped with Clear Embossing Ink, covered with clear EP and heat set.  Then came the inking of the background with Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo and next the gears were stamped from the "Time Travelers" with Archival Sepia and then I wiped off the excess on the embossed areas with a dry paper towel.  The embossing was then removed using that "four" letter word, the iron!  Sorry I meant to take a picture of the naked background, but got too excited!

I used Tim's water brush to color the "Time Traveler" with Tattered Rose, Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo, cut him out and shaded with Walnut Stain!  The sentiment from Classics 5 was stamped on inked paper with Archival Coffee and then a little Spritz and Flick for some background interest.
Don't you love that sentiment and so true it is and that is why I decided to just play today! Will be linking this tag to Bloggers Challenge, "Tags" and Inspiration Journal's, "Don't Quote Me."

Hope your week is going well and you are taking that much needed time to stay young by playing!
Thank you for visiting me today!

Tim's Stamps; Artful Tools, Classics 5, Time Travelers
Ink; Archival Sepia and Coffee, Distress Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint, Tattered Rose, Walnut Stain
