.......so therefore this weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show should be a snap!!!
I titled my banner Happy Spring......but I have to tell you....the shutter my banner is attached to is stuffed in a snowbank and it was spitting snow while I was taking these pictures......oh but it's coming!!
I began with Canvas Corp ~ Canvas Stars. They were colored with Butterscotch and Red Pepper Color Wash along with Vintage Photo Distress Stain. I first sprayed the stars with water to slight saturation then I dipped the edges in the pools of color and watched the color wick into the canvas. Then I dried the stars a bit and used my Vintage Photo Distress Stain around the edges.
To strengthen the burlap tags I painted on Matte Multi Medium.
I then ran my Vintage Photo Distress Stain around the edges.
Each of the flowers began as a neutral color which I changed using Wild Plum, Purple Twilight and Sunset Orange Color Wash and Butterscotch and Red Pepper Color Wash.
Fabrics used were Linen and Crinoline.
The denim used was from an old pair of jeans!!
and I spy Tim Holtz Alpha Parts!!
And I have to say....the splash of PURPLE set the banner off nicely!!
There you have it......STARS!!
Now....it's your turn!! Link your creation up to the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog.....and who knows you could win this....
