Some Tim Holtz style!

Made this for an Art teacher, Used Tim Holtz "Crowded Attic" Papers, the Alterations Birdcage die, added some charms and then used The Eaziscore large lowercase letters templates for the initial, I used Joanna Sheen's marbled papers for that and just added a few gems to embellish it. I added a 'domino' which was alcohol inked and also a sizzlets 'buttons' die. not the best of photos I'm afraid as my camera is refusing to work properly just now.

This one kind of took a bit of a weird turn! It's for a 'graphics' teacher. She does a lot of work with computer and the likes so maybe that's where the 'cogs' came from....cogs, gears...machines?...Hmmm ...yeah I know....bad huh! Still hopefully you can see where I was going with this piece. She also likes 'vintage' hence the old bike, the little bottle is filled with cogs from old watches to try and match in with the Alterations cogs and gears. Again an initial using the Eaziscore alphabet templates with Joanna sheen's marbled papers, and another domino.

This is the first card made in aaaaages! It's for an "English" teacher hence the bookatrix, caligraphy and printblocks backing papers, I made the paper rose using a stamp from my craft stash, and punched out some tiny flowers and leaves with matching paper. I cut out one of the print blocks with the recipent's initial and then highlighted some of it with a fine gold marker. Finished it off with some gems and some peel offs stuck down and then cut out of matching paper.

Thanks for looking in, and hopefully I won't be gone for soo long this time!

Take care
