Hello fellow crafters! Hope everyone is having a fantastic Thursday! Yesterday I spent the day in the studio, first making some fun backgrounds with Ken Oliver Colorburst and then I tried out the new Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Resist Spray! This product is so addictive. From these backgrounds I created a card for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: It Must Be Love!
For the background I sprayed the Distress Resist Spray through a My Favorite Things stencil (Graduated Hearts) and then sprayed several colors of Distress Spray Stain over top. To add additional dimension I used a few more stencils with Distress Ink to add layers to the background. The additional layers, though subtle, really make this background pop.
For the focal image I used Tim Holtz Valentine blueprint stamps, stamped with Versafine black and clear heat embossed. I wanted to be sure to get a dark image over the resist background. The “14” portion of the stamp was then stamped again and watercolored with Distress Markers.
A few embellishments were added, including the LOVE ticket- (as the SSS Challenge requires the word LOVE appear in the project!
Come join in on the fun for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge this week!
