Simon Says: Love is in the Air

Hello Monday my friends! Hope you have all had a lovely and creative week. We have a new challenge for you at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - LOVE IS IN THE AIR. We know what holiday is just around the corner, so use this week to get ready for it! 

It's been wonderful having Wendy with us for the month sharing her amazing inspiration and creativity! We will miss you Wendy!

(sure, robots have hearts too!)

It all started with texture paste on the tag, then I stamped the moon, and went back in with the rockets and stars.

I sent for a darker background with the Distress black soot.

Then added in a bit of orange and blue...

a bit more color with the misters...

then, distress crayons to build more depth.

I stamped the robot using the Stamping Platform, then the balloon onto watercolor paper, then colored them with watercolor markers. Finally, I fussy cut this out and popped it with foam tape. 


This robot is ready to travel to the Moon to express his love! Wouldn't this be a fun tag to give your sweetie on Valentine's Day? ...after all, love is in the air!

I was inspired by Tim Holtz's Blueprint Robots to make my tag for our challenge. I hope I've inspired you to join us this week. One lucky participant will be drawn for the $50 shopping voucher from our generous friends at Simon Says Stamp!

A great place to shop!!
