Stampin it for STAMPtember with video tutorial

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! I am sure you all know that STAMPtember® is a very special month in the Simon Says Stamp Store calendar and this week we are asking you to use a stamp, no digi images allowed.

This month Simon Says Stamp is giving away an amazing prize, a dream craft room! Click here for more details.

It's been a while since I've used washi tape for the Monday Challenge, andthe Henna Patterns Stamp set made me think of washi tape. So I used that on my take alon with actually washi tape. I've colored it in with Hickory Smoke Distress Crayon and Peacock Feathers Distress Marker.

The background I made by using Schoolhouse with Grid Paste. When it was dry, I applied the first coat with Bundled Sage Distress and Paint Peeled Paint Distress Stain. Then applied a few Distress Inks to create more depth.


The Thankful and Cottage Stems dies are also of the new STAMPtember release. I both painted them black with the Pitch Black Paint Dabber. On the Cottage Stems I've applied the Rust Paste from Prima Marketing. If this paste is still wet, the color is more intense than when it is dry. Then it gets a matte finish so it really looks like rust.




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 Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.
