Simon Says: Inspired By A Song


Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week the theme is

Inspired By A Song 

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Please pop by to see what Alison and the DT have made, fabulous inspiration projects!


I was inspired by Summer Holiday by Cliff Richard and made a luggage tag for my next trip to the Bahamas! (not really ;-)) I remember singing this song in the car when we were on our way to the coast when we were kids, happy memories :-) 

I actually listened to this song while making the tag, you can listen in while scrolling down if you like! 




I used Broken China and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Inks to colour the background and then used the embossing folder in the set to add the waves. I applied a little glue using a thin brush, and sprinkled with Prisma Glitter, lovely sparkle! 
I used a strip of card, coloured with Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey Inks and  die cut the sun, star fish and flip flop thongs from Simon's Exclusive Glitter Card

I added a couple of strips of Washi Tape and a few seagulls from a Simon's Exclusive Sea You Soon Set to finish ;-) 



Thanks for looking!

I am smiling from ear to ear while listening to the song (via Spotify). I wasn't familiar with it--the lyrics are great (the music from this era was so happy and cheerful). The scene you've created is idyllic and oh how it makes me long for my own summer holiday!

Greta said...

Oh my goodness--so creative, Lorraine! I absolutely love the glittered stenciling for the waves!

Redanne said...

This is absolutely gorgeous Lols, I love the sea and I love your beautiful luggage tag and Cliff's song is the perfect accompaniment! We are experiencing some lovely summery weather here in the UK! Hugs, Anne xx

I love this tag full of sunshine, sand and surf... especially those sparkling waves in the sea - a brilliant effect. I'd like to go on your Summer Holiday if this is how it looks!! How lovely to have you joining us on A Vintage Journey this month too.

Stephanie Leykauf said...

Gorgeous and perfectly summery tag, Lols! Of course, I love the shimmer and how the sentiment is off the edge a bit. Fab design!

Cute little beach tag, Lols! Your scene is right where I would love to be! hugs, Maura

Emma Williams said...

This song always reminds me of my Mum as she is a bit of a Cliff fan and Summer Holiday is just one of those songs that makes you smile wide and think happy thoughts, which is exactly what I think when I see your lovely tag...it's just so cute Lols and all those little details are perfect! Hugs xx

Wow, girl! You do know how to create a scene (in the best way, of course)! Your artwork always makes me happy and relaxed and like I want to go somewhere pretty or do something worthwhile. I especially like the texture and little details you included.
