Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Masculine Card using Tim Holtz Mini File Folders and Sideshow Stamp Set

"Masculine" is the theme of the week over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  We're also featuring Tim Holtz products.  Here is the card/altered file folder/not-sure-what-it-is-but-I-had-fun-making-it item that I came up with:

I started with a Tim Holtz mini file folder for my base.  I stamped some text (courtesy of the Sideshow stamp set) onto scrap paper and glued it to the folder.  Then I stamped some numbers from that same stamp set onto the folder itself with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink.

Bring on the paint!  I smeared paint around and got it to looking like this.  I couldn't resist adding some more stamped images from the Halftone and Rings stamp set, too.

Next I took some patterned paper from the Abandoned paper pad, punched circles out of it, then glued that on as well.  I also brought some purples and some navy to the party.

I finished this off with a little more paint, some sewing, a little more stamping (same stamp set) and the addition of some red here and there.  I added this gent to the front from Tim Holtz's Photobooth strips.  I usually add a hat or a crown to these people images, but this guy's hair was too perfect to cover up!  All I did was add one last word (found) from the Chitchat stickers and this project was a wrap!

Here are the supplies I used, which you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
