Hello Crafters!

Here we are to a brand new challange over Simon Says Stamp!


This week’s theme over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange is “CELEBRATE” – As we are celebrating our 6th Anniversary here on the Monday Challenge , we thought we should celebrate in style and use our very own Simon Says Stamp Products this week!

I started by cutting to size one of the Tim Holtz Vignette panel then I sanded the sides to make it smooth. I covered part of the panel with Gesso and I let it dry. Even if I covered the panel with the gesso I still wanted to see the wood under neat, so I applied carefully the gesso and let it air dry.


I used Disterss Spray to add color. First I used the pink one — then I added two blue shades.
Most of you ask me how I pick up colors…well….I simply pick the ones that are easy to reach with my hands..that is why I ususally use the same color combination. Because I am very lazy when I create and I use what is closer to me. LOL, Yes, you can all laugh at me now!


Finally, I used this AMAZING stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. I stamped it to resemble a dream catcher — I do not know why but everytime I think about a birthday I think about making wishes and so I think at dream catcher!
Maybe because I always thought that most of our dreams (the good ones!!) are our intimate dreams?

Surely for me is as last night I dreamed about winning the lottery and the prize was craft supplies! Yes, again, you can laugh at me! LOL!

Since we are celebrating big, for this challange Simon Says Stamp kindly offers TWO $50 gift voucher to shop over Simon Says Stamp!
