Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
This week we are challenging you to
LOVE THIS TECHNIQUE
This week we want you to share a project that features one of your favorite techniques!
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
One of my fave techniques is stencilling! I think its exciting to remove the stencil and see how it looks underneath, you are never totally sure what it will look like and every background you make will be a little bit different. There are so many ready made stencils available, or you can custom make your own to suit your project!
For the background I used a Tim Holtz Speckles Stencil and Pumice Stone Distress Ink for the base and then used a Tim Holtz Bubble Stencil with some Embossing Paste over the top.
The very cute Bird Crazy chick with his bright yellow plumage and the yellow ribbon are a perfect contrast to the grey background. I think I will give this to my hubby one day when we're in the middle of a thunder storm haha.
I coloured the Crazy Chick and some Tim Holtz Crinkle Ribbon with Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemon Distress Ink Pads.
Did you know that there is a Crazy Things Stamp Set and there will also be a Coordinating Die Set, which will be shipping mid November, to go with there birds!! The stamp set is winging it's way to me over the pond at this very minute! :-D I am stalking the postie :-)
