Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's theme is to create a project featuring an Artsy Stamp! It might be a background, a hand-drawn image, a sketchy texture stamp, or a special saying. We challenge you this week to get out your artsy stamps and play!
I created a card featuring a Tim Holtz artsy image as the focal point on a paintmarbled background.
I was so excited to ink up the fun butterfly image from Fairytale Frenzy with Archival Jet Black ink for this challenge. All the drips extending from the butterfly image mimicking dripping wet paint screams artsy to me, how about you? The colorful paintmarbled background was created using a combination of tarnished brass, brushed pewter and antiqued bronze Distress Paints. 
I finished off the card with layered Tatttered Flower along with a sentiment from Simple Sayings:
Many thanks for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!
Be Sweet ;)
