Some Exciting News...Home Sweet Home 47

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, July 2, 2013 @ 11:00 AM | , , ,

Hi there! I have some very exciting news to share with you today ~ I'm very honored to become a design team member for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog! Yahooo! I would be tickled pink if you would like to read all about it HERE :) My term officially starts Monday, July 22nd. In case you are not familiar, Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge blog consists of a group of vintage inspired crafters. From rusty junk to shabby chic, retro inspired to attic treasures, and anything in between we share a love of all things vintage. A new challenge begins every Monday!
I made this tag for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes
To create this tag, I first painted the tag using acrylic paints and the gelli plate then ran it through the Vagabond along with an embossing folder to add texture. I randomly applied gesso and white acrylic paint, once dry I randomly stamped the background and added more paint.  
The craft board heart embellishment was made using a Tim Holtz Sizzix die which I then painted and added crackle medium to.
For color inspiration, I joined along with The Play Date Cafe and for theme inspiration, I played along with the Sunday Stamper challenge which has a HOME theme. 
Thanks so much for visiting! 
Be Sweet ;)
