Simon Says: Sprinkle and Splatter


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

The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

Please pop by to see what the super talented Anne and the DT have made!! I tell ya' I have learned such a lot from these girls!! So super talented!! 

I love mushrooms and when I saw this GORGEOUS  Dylusions Toadstool Town Cling Stamp Set I just HAD to have it!! While I was making this card I thought this would also make a fabulous 'FUN'ghi' Note/Recipe Book to send with the card so that will be my next project, BRB!

When I was writing the words I was going to say 'Buzzin' on by just to say 'Hi' but then I thought, bees don't say that so I stuck with bee language ;-) 


 I stamped and masked the image, little tip here, make sure you stamp on the correct side of the masking paper as otherwise, after you have spent ages fussy cutting, you will end up with a mirror image of the shape you need, just saying' *ugh* ;-)

 After placing the mask over the image I before splattered with Tim Holtz Distress Resist Spray, (so thats my Splattering done *tick*) When the resist was dry I blended a little Broken China Distress Oxide Ink over the top.


 I got so carried away with the next bit that I forgot to take more pics, but while the mask was still in place I used a Tim Holtz Leafy Layering Stencil and Hickory Smoke Oxide Ink to add some design to the left side and then sprinkled (so thats the Sprinkling bit done too;-)) with A Bit Jaded and Slime Infusions, spritzed with water and when that was dry I splattered with Dylusings Ink Sprays.


I then coloured using Zig Color Brush Pens and fussy cut the bee used a 3D foam pad to pop her on there. I finished by stitching around the edges, added a little Washi Tape and wrapped some Black Twine and tied a bow! I did finish the inside but left it blank to write a note. 



Thanks for looking!

Awww, Lols, this is so adorable, I feel like this is what a fairy garden might look like! The bee is so, so cute and the spotty 'Fun' ghi' are beautiful.
