Wise Words!

Looky ... I am cheating already ... and it's only Monday! I have made the pictures small so it looks like I have more to say :0) I know .... I know ... shame on me ... but you really don't wanna hear my tales of Domestic Godessness ... trust me!
To be fair ... it was n't all domestic chores ... I did have a lovely day teaching my Ranger Masterclass  at LB Crafts ... and I had a couple of nights out ... including a Thai ... meal ... you understand!
Anyways ... back to the business in hand ... This week at Simon Says Stamp and Show we are asking to see your Lord Tim of Holtz techniques. Obviously there are far too many for me to make a choice on ... so I went for the random approach! I threw open my Compendium of Curiosities and went with the page I landed on ... which was ... well hopefully it's obvious ... Alcohol Ink Splatter! The stamps are also Lord Tim of Holtz ... you know Tim ... the man that can make anything feel better with some wise words on a stamp while cliff diving in Acapulco with just a spot of Glossy Accents and a Paper Piercing Tool.
Once again ... the generous site sponsor, Simon Says Stamp, are very generously offering a $50 gift voucher for a randomly drawn entry ... so what are you waiting for?
I must away ... I have my MOJO back ... well ... a bit of it anyway ...
Wish me luck ...
Laters!

Hello Linda. Your piece for the challenge this week is wonderful. Love all the vividly bright colors from the alcohol inks. And you picked one of my favorite Tim stamp sets! It's all beautiful!

Love this technique, the colours are so so striking especially against the black stamping. A better way to while away the hours rather than domestic duties LOL. Tracy x

Hi everyone. I'm exited to have become a member of this forum and am looking forward to contributing.

My interests are wide and varied but I guess my real passion is for music. I love a wide variety such as
Faithless, The Smiths, Enigma, The Cure & The Mission.

I'm always looking for new places to download new music and the best place I have come across is
[url=http://www.iomoio.com/index.php?pid=3140]Iomoio[/url]. Their music is only 15 cents a track so you can save a real fortune. And it's legal!

Anyway, looking to make more posts soon.....
