Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge Blog all through November! That's right...I'M BACK...and having fun again too!
This weeks challenge is to "Shine Bright Like A Diamond" using Tim Holtz products. Boy oh boy, did I take this to extremes. I don't think I've ever made such a bright and blingy project before! Thank you so much for asking me back SSS! I'm having a blast!
|I die cut all of my pieces for the ornaments using Tim's Deco Sheets, that were stuck to cardstock.|
|I inked the edges of all the pieces, and then assembled using Multi Matte from Ranger, and then added Loop Pins for the hangers.|
|I inked directly on the Harlequin Texture Fade with Archival, before embossing, so I would know exactly were I would put the Stickles (in the next step).|
|I used Black Diamond Stickles on the black harlequin shapes, and Diamond Stickles on the white areas. Talk about shine and glitz.|
|I stamped onto the Crinkle Ribbon with the Diamond Background Stamp.|
|I colored in the debossed areas of the Typed Token with Picket Fence Distress Crayon. I used the new Metallic Trimmings for the ornaments, and the sentiment came from the new Idea-ology Metallic Stickers as well.|
|The ribbon for the ornaments was already silver, but I wanted a little more bling, so I misted it with Tim's Mica Spray in Pewter before making my bows.|
Make a project for the theme this week, and you can be chosen to win a $50 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp! Good luck, and I look forward to all your entries, AND thanks for coming by!!!
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
