This week's theme on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is to do a project using one color... any color! I thought long and hard about how to make this week's piece, and finally remembered that black and white are considered by some to be the absence of color.... and black, white and green is my favorite color combination, so I chose peeled paint as my one color.
I started by creating a multi-layered background on a tag with distress stains, (black soot, peeled paint and picket fence) adding intensity to the color by blending distress inks over the stains.
Then added the circle stamp from Tim's Bitty Grunge set, covering each circle with a circle fragment and sprocket gears, game spinners, snaps and a little bling.
Added accents with a white pen, and the word "imagine" in grunge letters painted with peeled paint crackle paint, filling in the cracks with black soot distress ink.
Added some distress stickles in black soot, rock candy and peeled paint - hard to catch in the light, but it gives a very subtle glittery look.
Hope you have time to join in this week's challenge - as always you will have a chance to win a $50 shopping spree from Simon Says Stamp!
Have a great week!
