Simon Says ,,,,, TAGS or ATC’s :-)

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you or joining us for the Sporty/Patriotic Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,

you can add a tag or an ATC to a card or project too :-)

The design team have created some awesome projects for your inspiration, we are all featuring
Tim Holtz Products

you don't have to use them to join in but as most people do have his products we would love to see them used :-)

As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Store!

I really enjoyed this challenge :-) ATC’s may be small but they are fun to make and it is a challenge in itself to create in miniature :-)

I started by cutting some Speciality Stamping Paper to ATC size ( though it is available ready cut to size too ) I then used a blending tool to colour 2 pieces using Stormy Sky, Dusty Concord, Shaded Lilac and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. I then flicked some water over them to create splotches and then, when dry I sprayed with Mister Huey’s Calico Shine.

I used a Tim Holtz ATC Flourish stamp inked with black Archival and then made a black shrink plastic Weathered Clock for the corner. The butterfly is from a Grungeboard Elements pack, coloured with a pearl acrylic dabber. I added some lovely flower trim from a Lavish Ribbon set, this was coloured with a Dusty Concord Distress Stain, dotted with Star Dust Stickles and I added a few Hero Arts gems to finish.

For the 2nd one I stamped a manequin from an Attic Treasures set, inked with Vintage Photo distress ink, rounded using an EK Success tool kit, added a twine bow and adhered with Scrap Dots. I coloured a strip of lace with the Dusty Concord Stain and stuck a hanger clip over it using Multi Medium. I used the spool stamp from the set and made a shrink plastic ruler, also in the set. I finished by faux stitching the edges with a copic multiliner pen.

Thanks for looking :) the DT have made some gorgeous tags and ATC’s so please hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)
