Feeling duo

English / Italiano

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 “Touchy Feeling” – so grab your modeling paste, your gesso, your fibers….anything….!!! and show us how you create something with a “touchy feeling”!

I started working on my ATCs by adding some tape to the background, then I added a layer of pieces of tissue wrap paper and lastly I added some die cuts letters I had laying around my table. I let the glue dry and then i covered everything with a bit of gesso.

I set aside to dry again. Finally I added some modeling paste through a stencil.


This week I wanted to play with distress paint, so I grabbed three of them (i honestly choose the color combo eyes closed) and started adding color to the background. i didnt wait for the layers to dry before adding the other color so I would be able to get some mixed colors.

I sprayed with a bit of water then set aside to dry.

I grabbed the black paint and started addding colors to the nooks and crannies to highlight the textured backrgound.


i stitched around my ATCs then I glued down the paper dolls and the sentiments, but before doing that I added some splatters with white paint diluted with water.

For this challange Simon Says Stamp kindly offers a $50 gift voucher to shop over Simon Says Stamp!

    I love these ATCs Zoey! They are so pretty and I love the sentiments you added to them. Gorgeous background. I haven’t made an ATC in a long time, I have no idea why, since I really like that small format.
