Tag it with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Tag it".

I made this tag for one of my teammates. She already got some cards from me and unconsciously it was always something with green or blue in it. For this one I went for pink and purple, with a little hint of blue.


I started with Distress Oxide Wilted Violet and Distress Ink Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves. But instead of using water for the Wrinkle Free Distress technique, I used Nuvo Mousse Pure Platinum mixed with water. This gives it a nice shimmer.


I colored the dragonfly with Tattered Rose and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Then again used Nuvo Mousse Pure Platinum mixed with water. That made the color fade into the back too much so I've applied Distress Ground Espresso to make the edges stand out again.



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.

If you use instagram add #sssmchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too!
