Hello! First, a big thank you to everyone who commented on my forest tutorial last week on the Simon Says Stamp & Show blog. This week we have a another fun challenge for you, with lots of possibilities, 'S is for...', anything you can think of that is inspired by 'S'.
Once I started thinking, I couldn't just stop at one item, and this layout was inspired by: stamps, Stamper's Anonymous, Sizzix, stencils, scrapbooking layout, sentiments, Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade:
This is such a great sentiment stamp. I dragged a piece of manila cardstock through Distress Inks (Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers) smeared on my craft sheet and misted with water. When it was dry, I misted with white Dylusions ink, for a great chalky effect. The tag, title letters and roofs were die cut from this piece of paper, and inked around the edges with Black Soot. Three small wood veneer stars were painted with Picket Fence Distress Paint and glued to the tag. I twisted tissue tape together to tie it with.
Join us this week and you can be the lucky one to win a $50 gift voucher from our fabulous sponsor Simon Says Stamp (lots of 'S' inspiration here!).
