Here we are to a brand new challange over Simon Says Stamp! I am overly excited today because I will join again the Simon Says Stamp family…but this time as their very own design team member! In fact I was one of the 4 selected to join the Monday Team. I will save you all from all the excitement and omg’s and all that! (But I’m so so so so happy!!!)
This week’s theme over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange is Recycle/Upcycle style — and you know already this is one of my favorites! I love to recycle whenever I can, in fact most of my 3d projects are made from cardboard boxes.
For this challange I wanted to use some really old playing cards I have from my childhood, I kept them for I do not know what reason, there are few playing cards that are missing so it was not really “useful” anymore!
I gathered few playing cards and covered them with Gesso. I let them dry and then distressed the edges to make them look worn out. I sticked the cards together with hot glue as I was pretty impatient and hot glue was the fastest way to tie everything together!
I used Dylusions Spray Inks to add some color and to add texture I used Prima Marketing Light modeling paste through Tim Holtz Layering Stencil – Bubbles.
The heart is made of porcelain powder and I colored it with Dylusions Spray Inks and covered partially with Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap Paper – I added some stamped images to add some more interest.
These dies from Crate Paper were just perfect to add the lovely touch to this house of cards!
