The Tattoos are Alive!!

The theme over on the Simon Says Stamps and Show Challenge blog this week is "something from yesteryear". I recently got these Calais stamps from 7gypsies, and they really remind me of vintage tattoo designs, particularly the rose and the swallow, so I thought they'd be perfect for this challenge!

I combined them with some of Tim Holtz's classic images to create this shadow box. I kinda think it looks a little like the tattoos have come to life and gone out to play! lol Then again, maybe I've just been at the sherry a bit too much, lol Click on the pic for a larger view!

Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try?
