Hello everyone and welcome to the brand new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week we are asking you to...CHILL OUT! So whether you choose to make a winter card, chill out by creating a project or show us your favourite thing that you chill out too ~ we can't wait to see what you create and hope you'll join us for all the fun!
For my project, I chose to use the TV show, Sherlock as my inspiration! After a busy few weeks making top secret projects, shhhhh ~ more about that soon...I like nothing more than relaxing on a Sunday night indulging in some of my favourite shows and this one was the perfect inspiration for my panel!
It's time for a brand new challenge and here's how I created this piece...
To begin with I cut a piece of canvas paper and applied a layer of Picket Fence Distress Paint over the surface. Heat dry the paint and then start to add the colour ~ for this I used gesso and Distress Crayons, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Peacock Feathers, Crushed Olive and Pumice Stone and just layered my colours, blending them out with a semi dry baby wipe. I also used two of my favourite background stamps, Newsprint and Halftone, to add some more layers and interest and for this, I inked up each of the stamps and randomly stamped it onto areas of the background.
To create the lettering and numbers, I used the Halloween Words die and just took the individual letters I needed to spell out 'Baker St'.
Cut the circle in half and after placing the stamped image where you will finally attach it, stick the semi circles behind, so that they appear either side of the image. I also added some Film Tape ribbon to either side.
I really hope you love this project and it's given you some ideas for the latest challenge. As always, if you do need any further inspiration, then you need look no further than our blog to see all the wonderful creations from all the very talented Design Team members and every week, one lucky random participant has the chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp.
