darkroom door

A little something radically different from my usual stuff but it's good to flex those creative muscles now and again! What can I say about this? My first time using Darkroom Door stamps - Gobnait put me onto them when she came for a crafty date and I've been hankering ever since. The whole grunge/distress/ephemera thing just doesn't sit easy on my crafting shoulders - it often seems like a lot of hard work, so I cheated a bit and used BG Boxer papers as they are pre grunged and I finally got some Tim Holtz distress ink and opened the TH distress powder I bought over 2 years ago and never opened. Shame. Shame.
An hour of tinkering later and I've a 6 inch card that if not perfect aint the disaster it could of been. I've done it for the World Stamping Week "Doors" challenge that is going on over at 2 Peas and I'm desperate to do a card using the Jim Morrison quote that comes with the set - so you might see another door card very soon.
I've also been blog stalking Tim Holtz - like I said distress wasto distressing for me but you really should check out his blog - lots of advice and tips and some amazing freebies. Today it's a whole set of TH distress inks - yep, the entire collection and I'd love them. Anyhow I must go as I have yet to start the 220 wedding invites I need for the weekend - waiting for ribbon to arrive, just pray the postie has it tomorrow for me, so no playing just work, work, work for a few days. Well mostly.
