Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog


Hello, FRIENDS! Today began with sunshine, a pair of Toms on my feet, and an absolutely ridiculously good hair day, so you know what? I am pretty darn sure it is going to be a FANTASTIC day! Let's make it happen! And to add to that fantastic day, we have a fun new challenge for you over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week we are playing TAG! Yup! We want to see tags as your creation, in your creation, on your creation, whatever! Just show us a tag! The design team is playing with Tim Holtz products this week. If you have them we'd love to see you rock them, but if not, that's cool, you don't have to use them to play along!

Create Imperfection Tag


Yup. So you know that happy little CAS box I live in from time to time. Well, I BUSTED that sucker wide open for this challenge! Jumped right on out of the box and went full on mixed media style. I should write a song about it. Psy can sing it. It's gonna be a hit, folks, so get ready for Mixed Media Style: The Song to hit your local radio stations!

So, you can find the products I used in the links below (or just by browsing the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store), but I want to talk technique for a minute. I used multiple colors of distress inks, applied with the cute little round applicator thingy (yup...totally the technical term) on a standard shipping tag. I then splashed a bit of water on that, which has this neat little reaction and causes those light spots you see. I added some stamped and embossed flowers, then some stamped (and rather messy, mind you) rows of dots before attaching the metal pieces. I also used inks to dye the ribbon and I love that piece so much I think I could hug it. Seriously, though... if you haven't tried to do some of this stuff, it really isn't hard to do... even I managed. HA!



AND... now it's YOUR turn! Create a tag or a project with a tag and link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog for your chance to win a $50 Gift Certificate to the Simon Says Stamp Store! Woot! Woot!

And dude, Have a Happy.
