Fears & Dreams ATC

It's that time again...the monthly ATC swap at the All Things Tim Yahoo Group! This month the theme was "march madness", and you could only use the colors blue and orange. I love Tim's stamped quotes, and this 'fears and dreams' quote really spoke to me. It's a pretty deep thinking quote, and one which I am sure most of us have struggled with at one time or another when it's time to take a leap of sorts...the dreaded leap of faith!
I am also submitting this ATC to the Gingersnap Creations Color Challenge of "using only 2 colors",  as well as another, the Gingersnap Creations Once In A Blue Moon Challenge "things that leap".
You might remember this marbled blue Alcohol Ink background from a tag swap last month...these were the remnants from the masterboard, which makes so many projects. I just added another stamped image using Tim's new honeycomb stamp and StazOn in pumpkin. Then I adhered these to ATC sized cardstock in orange that was stamped with Tim's new crosshatched design in Broken China Distress Ink.
I stamped the phrase twice using Persimmon Distress Ink, and heat embossed in Rusty Hinge Distressed Embossing Powder, then stamped it again just slightly to the side of the original in Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I added the words fears and dreams made from a Dymo label maker, ribbon, and the muse token.

From My Stash: ribbon, cardstock

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
