Embossing, Autumn, and Tim Holtz

Today's "Card"

I made up this card using Tim Holtz's kraft resist. I used gathered twigs, red brick, and spiced marmalade. I distressed the edges. I stamped the umbrella man with Onxy black ink. Then I embossed Tim's stamp, LIFE, and used a copper embossing powder. I also did that with the umbrella and used dimensional adhesive to give it a POP. I attached the paper to the card base using the tiny attacher and then used copic markers to change the color of the staples to black. I added 3 gears from 7 gypsies. I inked up the "play" tag and then attached it with a clip. This one took awhile, but I had fun playing!
