Cards Galore Challenge "Inspired by..."

Hello my dear blogger friends..

It is time for the new Challenge for the Cards Galore challenge blog..
This month theme is 

"Inspired by..."
This means for you to make a project using the style of who ever you are inspired by.

It took me a long time to think of a crafter that really inspires my, as I have "meet" so many talented crafters, but once the answer came to me It was so simple.
Tim Holtz...

Plain and simple. I love his style. The distressed look, is one of my favorite. No matter what I make, I distress it. You wont find a project of mine that is'nt smothered in distress ink.

So here is what I came up with.

The back ground paper is from My mind's Eye smothered in distress ink.
Then I embossed a piece of card stock with a brick pateren, also smothered in distress ink.
The stamp is coloured also in distress ink and the sentiment the same..
You get my obsession lol.
The colour I used on this project is Tattered Rose.

Just a wee note before I go. The winner of the April Challenge will very soon be announced over on the Challenge blog, so do keep an eye. 

Hope you like my card & Thanks for stopping by my blog.

BIG Hugs, Marleen xxx
