Simon Says Challenge: Tags or ATCS – Summery Tag

Hi guys! Welcome to another Simon Says Stamp challenge!!!  Today’s challenge is TAGS or ATCS!!!  You can head on over to challenge post to see the deets on the challenge and what the rest of the design team created!  The team is working with Tim Holtz products today! You guys know how I love my Tim Holtz Distress Inks!!!! Distressing is one of my most favorite techniques!!! Now I live in Florida where is like 110 degrees heat index so naturally, I wanted to create a tag that was cool and refreshing!

I heat embossed the background and combined the yummy (and my favorite to date) summer seasonal distress inks to create the colorful background! Because I didn’t have any hemp to match, I colored Lawn Fawn’s natural hemp with distress ink to match! The summery images are also from Lawn Fawn and I decided to add some glossy accents to the pitcher because hey, my pitcher is sage glass pitcher, so why not this one!!!!!

The wonderful Heidi is offering up a $50 gift certificate to the Simon Says Stamp online store!!!!!! HELLO!!!!!! That’s awesome!!!

Be sure to head on over the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog and take a look at the rest of the design team inspiration. Be prepared to have your socks blown off!


Thanks so much for stopping by!!!! :)
