Simon Says Stamp and Show ... a Lord Tim of Holtz Technique!

This week at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge use... a Lord Tim of Holtz Technique!

I really like Tim's Rusted Grunge Technique. I used it on the key hole I cut from some grunge paper with the Hardware Findings die.
I made this clock for Jeff for Christmas. I made it more manly by using photos of our dogs instead of flowers to embellish it. The clock hardware was gold and I recolored it with silver alcohol ink to match the other metal on it.

I also finished my trees!!! I was inspired by Lynne's tree:
I used Pine Needles Distress Ink to die the fabric. The "branches" were cut out from the Tattered Leaves die. I had a small piece of green fabric left over from my Halloween costume so some of the branches were cut from that to give a 2 toned color. I really like how they turned out!!
thanks for looking!!
