Wild for Washi


Hello Monday my friends! Welcome to our WILD WITH WASHI challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Let's be honest you have a stash of washi tape that just keeps growing like mine? Well, now is the perfect time to use some of it. 

It has been an amazing month with Megumi, aka Ink Lady Blue with her fantastic creations! I love how interactive her work is. Hope to see you back here soon, Megumi! 

I combined a couple of wild ideas - the ocean and making my own washing tape...while singing "We all live in a yellow submarine..." 

I started with a piece of sticky back canvas tape and smooshed some inks onto it. 

Next, I began layering paints and stencils on top.


Had to add in a pop of contrast...

I added stamping, and then a contrasting strip of washi from Dina Wakley, as well as a few purple scribbles. 

Details. of the washi...

I used a Simon Slimline card (these are quickly becoming a favorite), stenciled it with paint, then blended some ink across it. 

Stamped and popped the ocean thoughts, added the yellow submarine, and put glossy accents into the portholes. 

Why not try to make your own washi tape this week? Or pull some out of your stash, there are so many cool ones to choose from! 

Now it's your turn to try your hand with washi! Our generous friends at iImon Says Stamp are offering a $25 voucher. 



A GREAT place to shop!

Tea Time, Anyone?


 Hello Monday my friends! Welcome back to our latest challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  FOOD/DRINK, take your pick or do both! 

I couldn't resist a TEA theme with this oh, so proper British gent. 

I started with Simon's Slimline card, and added watercolor to the teacups stamp. then stamped twice. 

As that dried, I stamped and added watercolor to eh gentleman, then fussy cut him.  I like to use space on the paper to check my color blending.

I added a bit of light stenciling to the open areas.

Later, I decided the water colored cups needed more definition, so I stamped them on vellum, fussy cut, and overlaid them. I also added Glossy Accents to the monocle.

So, how about a spot of tea with me? We can sit on the deck and enjoy the mountains while we sip our tea.  

Now it's your turn to create and join the fun with us this week! Our generous friends at Simon Says Stamp are offering a $25 voucher to one of you.
