Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Distress It










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

This week we are challenging you to
Distress It 
There are many ways to distress and age a project, from inking and sanding to scraping along the edges with a paper distresser or a sharp pair of scissors. We will be looking forward to seeing how you distress your creation.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Our guest Beulah Bee has made a fabulous tag this week, please pop by her blog to see her gorgeous work up close and personal! ;-)

I started by using a trio of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks, Spiced Marmalade,  Broken China and Worn Lipstick to create a background. Once this was dry I splattered with Dylusions Caribean Ink Spray


I used a Darkroom Door Arty Circles Cling Stamp and white pigment ink pad and embossing powder to add to the design and then used a Robin Cling Stamp for the focus. 


I used a Darkroom Door Alphabet Medley Stamp Set to make the 'tweets' and distressing the edges using a paper distressed and then swiped some Worn Lipstick along the edges. I finished with some washi tape and twine. 


and of course I finished the inside ;-)



Thanks for looking!
