Inside My Own Head

Yes its been a while since I posted to my blog but you know Christmas just wears me out.

My first blog offering of 2010 is the Artist Choice ATC, Artist Trading Cards. This swap is for the All Things Tim Yahoo Group.

When you think about art, it all comes from your thoughts or ideas so what better way to convey that thought but with head stamps.
Having a few of these in my stash made the creativity flow easily from my head to the card stock, paper and ink!

This is using one of Tims background techniques he taught in his recent 12 Tags of Christmas. I stamped the image and embossed it with Black Soot Distressing powder. The inside my own head is from Paper Artsy another favorite stamp company. I have several listed on my eBay store

The backs which I signed and again used both stamps from Tim Holtz and Paper Artsy.
Drop me some feedback or subscribe to my blog and let me know what you think.
