Simon Says: A Walk On The Dark Side










Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week we are challenging you to think about all things Halloween or use dark colours on your project.

A Walk On The Dark Side  

This week we are showcasing Tim Holtz Products. You don't have to use them in your project but if you have them we would love to see them used!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

This week we are welcoming the lovely and super talented Wanda Hentges aka Art By Wanda into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven't visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat! please pop by to say 'Hi'!



For the background I blended a selection of the fabulous Distress Oxide Inks  my faves ;-)

Can you see the fabulously spooky fence and gate! I used some awesome Rusting Powder!! it's like magic!! 


and I finished the inside. I heat embossed the sentiment to make it super black and shiny and popped in a super cute kitty from a Tim Holtz Mini Halloween Things Die Set  ;-)



Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get out your dark supplies and join in!!

 For all Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenges we would like to encourage you to explore your more artsy/mixed media side too, go for it! its fun!! :-)
