Tim Holtz Grungy Paper

The papers that Tim Holtz designs are some of my favorites.  The dark colors and interesting objects he chooses always cause me to want to buy those stacks.

The background papers came from an old stack (not TH) and the punched rectangles are from his Lost and Found stack.  I went online to find the old postcard image, imported it into my cardmaker software to re-size and print, and used Plantin Schoolbook cartridge to cut the "U".  The edges were all inked and some baker's twine was tied around the rectangle.

I made a total of six of these layouts, two with the dark green background, two with antiqued orange and a dark red.

I really am very happy with the way this card turned out!  It was inspired by one I saw in Card magazine.

How about using the legs stamp for "Thanks for your support" (the nylons). That's the first thing to come to mind when I saw them. Of course some will be too young to remember the support hose women used to wear.
