Back again for another week with Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenges - this week it's a free for all - *anything* goes! So no excuses this week - no rules, just get your art on and have fun!
I know it won't come as a big surprise that I've done *another* Dylusions tag... but I will say - I made this about 3 weeks ago and had no earthly idea that I would be on the Dylusions Design Team now!
Dyan's sidebar - makes me so happy! Here we go...
I started with #8 manila tag used a craft stick to spread three lines of paint across the top of the tag (I used Ranger paint dabbers in pool, raspberry and snow cap) and then scraped the paint down the length of the tag with a craft scraper - cool, huh? (I'm seriously addicted to this technique - you never know what you're gonna get.) Then I used the same paint dabber colors to stamp the dots and harlequin stamps from the Dylusions Basic Backgrounds set to add another layer of texture/interest.
I stamped some additional images from Dylusions (Traveling Travis, Bags of Bunting, and Pondering Petunia) on white card stock and painted in with watered down paint dabber colors. I love mixing and matching heads with different body parts and legs. Here the bunting was used as the body/dress.
Finally - added the spider and web from the Bits and Bats set with jet black archival ink, and the sentiment is from the Quintessential Quotes set. Did some hand-drawn stitching with a black pitt pen.
Hope you have time to join in the fun this week - do anything that inspires you! And as always you'll have a chance of winning a $50 shopping spree from Simon Says Stamp!
Have a great week!
