I hope you had a wonderful Easter celebration. We had a lovely dinner with my family. This week's challenge on Simon Says Stamp and Show is fun, fun, fun! Having just completed Tim Holtz' Creative Chemistry 101 on-line class, it was perfect timing. Just pick one of Tim's techniques and make whatever you want! If you haven't had a chance to join this class, it's well worth the small fee, and you'll have lifetime access to Tim's videos and downloads.
I created the base for this week's tag last weekend at my stamp camp, and finished it up yesterday for this week's theme. I started by creating a marbled distress stain background.
Then I stamped the background from Tim's Papillon set with picket fence stain. I added stamps from Tim's Haberdashery, and Little Labels sets for the background over the picket fence stain (notice how the white stamping bled through the jet black archival? that was a surprise!).
The sentiment is from the Stuff to Say set, which I stamped and then cut into pieces and adhered down the length of the tag.
I finished the tag up with some embellishments from Tim Holtz (philosophy tag, ruler ribbon, and a wire pin), 7 Gypsies (metal corner), and some vintage lace and buttons.
As ever, if you join in this week's challenge, you'll have a chance at winning a $50 shopping spree to Simon Says Stamp! Hope you all have a wonderful week - I'll be back soon with more tags to share.
