what think I have a crop and not be inspired by Tim Holtz!? LOL I was at an antique store today wishing I had his brain cause I would have seen awesome stuff to do with old post office box fronts LOL
http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/10/october-techniq.html (http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/10/october-techniq.html) something Halloween themed ;) and be inspired by Tim ;)

I know we don't all have crackle paints or fragments or the cool stamp or at least paint and ink that match like that :p LOL But you can stickle some letters, if you don't have his Distresser for edging all it is, is a thread cutter! I got one for like 2 dollars at AC Moore just a one side so check out your sewing supplies or sewing section! Use regular paint if you don't have crackle. I know I did an old Bowling LO I colored some of the circle tags with metal rims to look like bowling balls, punched two more holes did rubon letters and covered them with clear circle stickers to make them look like bowling balls. So take anything clear and stick it over a paper element to make it pop out more (also works with those marble things you put in fish bowls if you don't mind weight)

Hope ya'll SEE POSSIBLITIES! (lol sry referencing his shirts :D )

So where's your layout Zigg??? I want to see it to help me get a better understanding :)

Well I guess I can put this up. I used some of his Distress Embossing Powder on the background behind the pumpkins scared of the cat and distress ink on the top left and bottom right cut pumpkins. I also used it on the swirl embossing and then added black stickles.

yeah if you have a heat gun you can use that to speed it up ;) I did that with the stickles.

Okay, Ziggs, i've done all the challenges, now. Except for the one you just posted..

here's my take.. Now i remember why i don't make cards.. LOL
AS you can tell, i started to paint the bottom of it and didn't like where it was going, so i covered it up w/paper.. LOL

SU products, stamp is Mike's $1.00 halloween stamp i bought years ago. LOL The lettesr are punch outs i got from a swap on my LJ secret sisters 4 years ago!!! I still have the whole kit!!!!! I've only used these three items from that kit!! LOL *rolleyes* at me.. LOL

Here's my card. I painted the background and the chipboard "C". Then I combed paint on the "C" so it was so bright on the page - lol. I cut "CHEER" from a sheet of 6x6 paper, make a tag of it with my tag maker then covered it with glossy accents.

I actually painted 2 toy soldier charms for this card but they were too shiney compared to the background and "C" so I used a brass holly charm instead from ACP (http://www.startascrapbook.com/community/www.acharmingplace.com).

Now off to the the next THREE - lol.

, make a tag of it with my tag maker then covered it with glossy accents.
I have the MM tag maker - i need to use it more, i was using it like nobody's bizness but haven't used it in a while. :) also, glossy accents.. didn't think about that.. gotta remember that..

TFS.. i love your card.. much better than mine :)
