A big hello to everyone! It is already week three for me in the designer spotlight at the Simon Says Monday Stamp Challenge Blog. Time flies when you're having fun! And a new week means:
This week's challenge is to "Layer It Up" and that is just what I did for my canvas project:
Here is how I layered it up. (Product links at the end of project)
Distress Crayons in Picked raspberry and Mustard Seed were scribbled in a few places. The I sprayed away using Dylusions Black Marble, After Midnight, and Lemon Zest ink sprays along with Distress Spray Stain in Twisted Citron. The canvas was held up vertically to allow the inks to move around:
A small square was cut from 140lb. watercolor paper. I covered it with the same Tim Holtz Tissue Tape used on the canvas then sponged Mustard Yellow ink over it. Edges were sponged with the Black Archival ink. Set aside.
I spritzed a piece of crochet lace with water , then Dylusions London Blue and Squeezed Orange ink sprays along with Distress Spray Stain in Fossilized Amber. Set aside.
A portion of the Tim Holtz heart stamp was stamped onto a piece of light green sea glass using the Black Archival ink:
I hope you enjoyed my project. And now I challenge YOU to layer it up this week for a chance to win a $50 GC to the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Shop!

For my peeps at T Stands For Tuesday:
It was an active week last week for sure! Many of you are aware of the Nor'easter that came crashing into the Northeast US late Monday night thru Tuesday. Well, this is what it looked like here in PA:
Wednesday was my birthday and although it began with an upper respiratory infection (the coughing is the worst) I was showered with lovely flowers, cards, phone calls and good wishes:
A fun shaker card from LuAnn, a gorgeous Poppy card and envie from Patty,
and a beautiful watercolor card and completely decorated envie from Betsy!
It so brightened my day. Blessed to have such good friends in my life. Thank you all!
I have an art journal page to share:
Art Journal Journey (theme is Out and About) hosted this month by Yvonne of Meggys Way , Moo Mania and More with the theme of "time", and of course Paint Party Friday!
Thanks for hanging in there with these longer than usual posts, and I SO appreciate the comments too! Will be around to visit throughout the week, and I will have one final post next Monday as Guest Designer for the Simon Monday Challenge. I think you'll like my project(s) :)
