Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: Just add pearl

Good morning! I am here today to share with you a dt card for Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge:  Just add pearl. I am sure you all know enough about me now, to know that I love a pearly look....actually I find it hard not to add that pearly shine to everything!

A close-up to show all the pearly goodness in this card :) Brads, pins, ribbon, and of course my favorite technique....and that is to colour in an embossed image with Tim Holtz Distress Markers, and then spritz it all with a mixture of Perfect Pearls powder in water.

Simon Says Stamp is oh so generous, and will be giving away a $50 dollar store voucher to one random participant :)

I so hope you can join us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show for our pearl challenge. I know there are other pearly addicts out there!!
Have a great day! Hugs,TRace

Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: Studio 490

Good morning!! Today in our Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: Studio 490 we are showcasing product and techniques of Wendy Vecchi!!! I am in such awe of her work and style...I choose to be inspired by her technique of colouring dried molding paste with Tim Holtz Distress can see it HERE. I changed it up a bit and used Faber-Castell markers.

This is my finished board. Below, I have a mini tutorial on the process.

The background paper was handmade using Dylusions inks, Resolve, and watercolour can see the technique tutorial post HERE.
I adhered it to a board and added a few stencils with pan pastels for added depth and colour.

Here I have added Golden molding paste through TCW stencils and started to colour the dried areas with my Faber-Castell Big Brush Pens...very easy to do!

To finish it up I added these awesome Blossom Bucket hearts from Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 line....LOVE these to bits!!!, a sentiment from a Dylusions stamp set, a little glitter to the petals and leaves, and white paint splatters to the background.
Thanks Wendy for the wonderful inspiration!!!

Please join us this week Simon Says Stamp and Show and be inspired by Wendy Vecchi and the rest of the DT!! One lucky participant will be the winner of a $50 dollar store voucher from Simon Says Stamp :)Wendy Vecchi will be joining us as a guest designer this week, and you are going to be treated to two exclusive tutorials throughout the check in frequently at the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog:)
Have a fabulous day! Hugs, TRace

Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: What is your favorite?

Good morning! Today we have a fun challenge for you at Simon Says Stamp and Show...we want to see your favorite. It could be a style, technique, holiday, colour...whatever, you decide! I can't wait to see what everyone creates!
I could not just pick I have a mixed media board with a good few of my favorites in it :)

As you can see it is "wear your sunglasses" bright....I love bright shiny there is three favorites so far! I also love to use up product...what better way to justify buying new stuff :) So I created a background using the technique outlined below using older letter stickers.

This was the base of the board before I added the letter stickers....words of "LOVE" here and there in all different fonts, their colour does not matter.

 I then painted over it all with a paint and ink mixture...

 and then peeled off the letter stickers. Do NOT wait for it to dry. It reveals this pattern below :)

I also love the colour combo of pink and red together, and of course there are hearts...who doesn't love hearts!! So I wanted to have a big, bold, and bright heart for the centerpiece of the board. Here is the heart before the crackle paint is applied.

Here the heart with crackle paint on it...yes another favorite product of mine...I am using it on everything!!!. To finish off the look I added silver accents with my Krylon Silver Leaf pen and Gelly Roll clear star pen...those are my final favorites :) I believe my total number of favorites on this boards adds up to eight lol!

One lucky participant will be a winner of a $50 dollar voucher from Simon Says Stamp :) We also pick a top three to receive a special brag blinkie :) I so hope you can join us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show! Have a great day! Hugs, TRace
