Down and Dirty!

Yes I with millions of other British scrappers, card makers and general crafty people have jumped on the band wagon shouting ' I want to play too'. What am I rabbiting about I hear you say?....getting down and dirty distressing, splodging, stamping and blending with the Tim Holtz range of course. To be fair I have often admired the whole distressing/art journal/altered style of crafting but not knowing where to begin with it the nearest I have come is a little sanding, ripping and inking. So with his new book and the QVC tsv in my hot little mits and a timely visit to Stamperarma at Stevenage on Saturday I had a play.

These are a few tags ready for a tag swap arranged by the Scraphappens team on UK Scrappers. I still have some more to do and have to add a photo and some info about me on the back. But I am pretty pleased with myself at my first attempts and just LOVE the Alice in Wonderland White Rabbit stamp and just know this is going to be a well used stamp in the future. The inks I used are all Tim Holtz distressing inks in Barn Door, Brushed Corduroy, Shabby Shutters and Spiced Marmalade (don't you love the names?). I covered a selection of Alphas in an old dictionary page, ink and Glossy Accents. Then finished with a slick of Hard Candy Stickles around the edges.


  1. There is so much wonderful Alice inspiration around at the moment..I love it! These are fab Alana, I can see why you love that stamp :)

  2. Me too, love these and love that stamp. Also loving all The Alice inspiration around at the mo. Can't wait to see all the new ranges when I'm finally off my ban and get to splurge at Ally Pally.

  3. These are lovely. I can't wait to get one!
