Happy Birthday, Tim!


Tomorrow is thebirthday of Tim Holtz.
Happy birthday!
To celebrate this there is a challenge at
Studio L3 for 
Grungy Monday  31 to make something
for Tim Holtz's birthday.
I just couldn't make a birthday card,
it had to be something special, because Tim is so special
with all his inspiration.
I came up with the idea to make him 
and Mario an nice cupcake to celebrate.
I found these nice free cupcake wrappers
online (which you can safe with a right
mouse click to your own computer).
It took me two times printing to find the
right size that I wanted to use.

I printed the wrappers on the back of  a piece of Kreaft Resist paper
and cut it out with scissors. I used a pearl acryl dabber to
color the paper and stamped on it with stazon and a stamp from
the Purely random stamp set.
 I used all the sizes of the rosettes.
Also out of Kraft Resist paper and added some vtage photo
distress ink and stain. Than I glues them together with my hot glue gun.
 Tim is done with the Vintage letters and glued with glossy
accent on a piece of wire. The man stamp is also from the Purely Random
stampset. Stamped on kraft paper and colored with pencil.
 The ticked is from the Odds and ends stamp set.
The sentiment is from a clear set from my stash.
Here you see theother cupcake.This time I added
a few sticky pearls in the stamped motive.
On top a ruggled flower is glued with a little hot glue.
