Guesting at SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenges - Week 4


Hi everyone, welcome to my fourth post and project as a spotlighted guest at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenges this Month. This week the challenge theme is :

Not A Card 

I created a project this week. Hope you like it.

For the background., I began with the Crackle Paste. Applied Texture Paste through the Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Slate with a palette knife to create raised textured effects. Let dry and crackles with appear. I sprayed Distress Spray Stain-Hickory Smoke, Weathered Wood, Pumice Stone, and DistressOxide Spray-Pumice Stone to the background. The spray sinks into the cracks. When it dry, stamped randomly with Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Faded Type. Tear a strip shape from TYPOGRAPHY Collage Paper and glue them onto the background.

For the flowerpot, I spray Distress Oxide Spray-Antique Linen and Vintage Photo on the watercolor paper. Die-cut with Sizzix Bigz Die - Planks by Tim Holtz and dry embossing with Tim Holtz Sizzix LUMBER 3D Embossing Folder. In order to deepen the wood grain, I used the black ink pad to directly paint the inside of the embossing folder. Then glue them onto black cardstock. Die-cut with Tim Holtz Sizzix POTTED Bigz Die

Die-cut the flowers and leaves from white cardstock using 
Sizzix Thinlits Die Set - Wildflower Stems #1 and Garden Greens by Tim Holtz. Gently inked them with Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Ink by blending tool.

This is what it looks like when done.
