Use that stamp

Hi everyone,

Yet another month to go and it's finally spring time! Simply can't wait for the winter and the cold to be over. So I'm in the mood for some bright colors! For this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show we're asked to use a stamp we love but didn't use (yet). I have lots of stamps (well, I think I do) and I use them almost always immediately when I get my hands on them. Well, only the ones I really like. Sometimes there are some stamps in a set that aren't really my thing, or I don't have inspiration for. I looked through all my stamps and have found two that I've never used and I don't have a reason why not. It is the stamp from Tim Holtz Classic #6 Collection and an exclusive stamp from Simon Says Stamp.

 

I think those big tags are so cool, you can do so much more with them. I immediately went spraying with the Dylusions Sprays and the Ampesand Mask. Boy, do I love nice messiness. When I start playing with stencils, Ijust can't stop. So I used them with Distress Ink to create more layers and dimension. I also wanted to create more texture by using modeling paste. To make the Ampersand more pop, I used a gear in the middle. So deliously random, I love it!










To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra

  13. Well this certainly is bright and cheerful - I think this is my favorite color combination. Your tag looks like a challenge to me Sandra -- almost a dare - "Come on and amaze me, I dare you" -- I love all the patterns making the background really look great and I like the repeat of the stars. The two ribbons look good too - wonderful work!
