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 “USE PATTERNED PAPER” – oh wow how fun!!!!
This week’s theme is awesome! I love it and I had so much fun playing along with my awesome team!

For this challenge I wanted to give my self another “limit” which was to ONLY use patterned paper! Exception made of course for the sentiment!
So I cut a piece of patterned paper from the awesome Paper stash 8×8 collage mini and started to add texture and colors to it. I also used one of the mini stencils by Tim Holtz, they are the perfect size for smaller project, I will never be tired to say that!


I also die cut – using patterned paper – a couple of little details like the hinge and the clock hands to add a bit of interest to the ATC. These were also distressed and I put a layer of distress crackle paint that I then let it dry and highlighted the crackles with even more distress ink.


The sentiment is cut from another piece of cardstock from the same patterned paper stash, then I decided to use the stickers that I soooo love! (as you might have guessed already! lol)
Of course to finish this ATC off I had to add my signature…the black stitches!
So this is my take on the challange, I am looking forward to see what you create!

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

    This is a very cool piece, Zoey! You blend patterns and colors so seamlessly that it’s always a treat to try and see where one pattern starts and another one ends– it all just comes together perfectly every time! On this ATC, I also really like the mix of retro license plates with that super sophisticated background! Looks fab, as usual!

    Amazing, Zoey! I love how you used patterned paper to create the clip and clock hands, they look like they are metal pieces and I love how you manage to get your signature sewing on each and every project. Beautiful!!
