The Wall

I bought the Tim Holtz "in the bag" dies a while ago and have been looking to use it and thought a birthday tag and voucher bag was ideal.

As its for a special young man as he turns double digits. I thought something trendy was needed! So out came the Artistic Stamper sneaker #1, I still think these are just the most fabulous stamps.

The backed ground was simply done using a that special touch brick stencil and Salty ocean, spiced marmalade and festive berries distress inks. The edges were sanded and inked with vintage photo. Even though I over inked the sneaker stamp I happy with the slightly grungy look. "Always dream BIG" is from Art Saying by Sam Poole at Creative Expressions.

I'm entering this for the One stop craft challenge for the Kids!
