Dare to be artsy

Hi everyone,

 
Simon Says Challenge Monday Blog has an exciting and fun challenge for you this week, it's all about the artsy stamp! Whether you use a sketched looking stamp, a grungy texture stamp or use any other form of artsy stamps, just let your artistic juices flow.


The artsy stamps I used are the amazing Scribbly Birds from Dina Wakley! To complement them and let these cuties shine on my tag, I've played a lot with stencils and lots of contrasting colors.
The first layer is made with the Distress Marker Spritzer, Dusty Concord and Dot Fade stencil, subtle in the background.



Well that got my creative juices flowing and went to work with Dylusion Sprays like Lemon Zest in combination with Mini Chevron and Fresh Lime with Bubble. It was not exciting enough, I needed a bold contracting color, Funky Fuchsia and exclusive Simon Says Stamp Leaves stencil was perfect to pull it all together.
