KNock KNock !!........ It's Humour at CRC

Hi Everyone ...Over at the Craft Room Challenge blog my lovely DT sister, Mervi, is the host for this fortnight's challenge, which is HUMOUR!!
Laughing, smiling, joking really brightens your day and we hope you can join in with us. Many of you will have humorous stamps/sentiments, but if not you can mix stamps up, creating really funny images :-)

The Stamp Man is our sponsor this fortnight and if you enter  the challenge you may be lucky enough to be chosen, by Mr Random.Org as our Winner.
Here is my DT make post signature               

Unfortunately my camera had ran out of battery whilst I was making this project and I could not find my charger, so apologies for the lack of photographs, but I will talk through  the process.

First of all I took a piece of  paper , distressing the edges  with my  TH scissors, and blended Warm Honey Distress Ink all over it, applying more colour in certain areas. I then took two of Tim Holtz stencils ( Rays & Dot Fade) applying more Warm Honey and Peacock Feathers. Black soot was then inked around the edges. The SA stamp and mat was also distressed  as was the Calendar. 

I love these stamped hands as they are so useful in many of my projects. Some wire was twisted round a paint brush and then attached using Ranger Wonder Tape ( RWT). I pierced a hole with my paper tool and placed the wire through, securing with more RWT . 
The giggle stamp is also a wooden one from TH Stamper's Anonymous collection and was inked in Jet Black Archival ink.
The film Strip, Arrow and Adage Ticket are from Tim Holtz Idea-Ology range

Below you can see the dimension/depth created by placing the hands on the wire.

This really is a fun challenge theme and you can see more inspiring makes  by my DT sisters by clicking HERE  Hope to see you there x

Take care and have a great day on April Fool's Day....................... see what jokes/tricks you can play x
