Being in the middle

Hi everyone,

A new Monday brings a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's theme is: "In the middle". Indeed, it's the middle of the month, but not yet the middle of the year. Where are we also in the middle of? Be inspired by being in the middle of things, time etc...



I immediately knew which stamp I wanted to use for this challenge! I now had a reason to buy it, the Botanical Sketch of Tim Holtz. What an awesome stamp that is. And perfect for this challenge because there is an opening in the middle of it.



Actually I use white embossing powder only with sentiments and wanted to use it for this large intricate stamp. With a water brush and different  Distress Markers I colored the whole stamp. It's a bit easier to color in the small areas because of the edges created by the embossing powder. I chose to give it a soft Spring look.

This tag is quite incredible! I really love the look of it and find it so unique. I never would've thought to do the florals in white and then fill in the colors, but I absolutely adore the way it turned out! So inspiring and really clever!
