SIMON SAYS STAMP AND SHOW CHALLENGE

This week's challenge for Simon Says Stamp and Show is anything goes.  Since the overall theme for this challenge blog is to use Tim Holtz/Wendy Vecchi type designs, all the stamps I used on this tag are from Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz. 


The tag was distressed with tea dye, aged mahogany and walnut stain Distress inks.  The background images were stamped using iced spruce, walnut stain and aged mahogany.  I stamped the flowers and butterflies with barn door distress ink on another tag and edged with walnut stain.  Then I cut them out and popped them up on the tag, adding some barn door Distress Stickles.  A strip of raw silk was tied through the hole of the tag.

Thanks for visiting!

Joy, this tag is amazing! I actually like it better than most Tim things - it isn't so dark and moody, but more feminine and sweet. Great job! Thanks for sharing.
