Distress Ink-o-Rama

Week 10 over at StudioL3 and Linda has made many folk extremely happy,  to play  and create with Distress Inks, this has got to be  one of my  most used  mediums created by Tim Holtz, if you haven't visited his web site before,  the  inspiration and ideas,  fair blow you away..
For this piece I used a selection of Tim's Stampers Anonymous  stamps. The layers I embossed with a  brick alterations plate. The bird is a die cut and the photo is from the Salvage sticker pack, the rest is from my stash.
Now to the colours,  my fingers still have  areas of these shades of Distress Inks, -tea dye-walnut stain-wild honey-black soot. For the highlights I used vintage photo distress stickles.

Just for Fun  also has a Tim Holtz challenge this week  the theme is  'Something Anything all thing Tim'

Both these challenges have fantastic examples by the DT's.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciated you taking the time to call.
