GM-4/ SSSS-Show us a Tim Technique

I am going for the two-fer AGAIN!.This week on Linda's blog, Studio L3, we had to use Tim's Texture Fades and Distress technique and on SSSS, we had to use a Tim technique, so this one will work for both challenges easily. I decided to step back to fall and use the pumpkin vines texture fade for mine and the definitions stampm from the Reflections set. Used old paper ink to stamp it on my folder. Also used another of Tim's techs by cutting the top of the folder to fit the tag through. Slick! After running it through Vincenzo, my Vagabond, I used the distressing tools to blend orange marmalade and rusty hinge on the pumpkins and peeled paint on the vines. Stamped the verse with Coffee Archival ink as well as the tree branch. Stamped part of the birds with black Archival ink. Blended rusty hinge and peeled paint over it all and then the edges in walnut stain.  Smeared some distress stickles on the pumpkins for a tiny bit of bling. Voila!
