Let's Take a Vacation

Hi there and welcome to another Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
This week we invite you to TAKE  A VACATION!

As always Simon Says Stamp Store is giving a $50 voucher 
to a random winner who will spend it at their fantastic shop!
Don't think it twice and join us today!

Taking a vacation is what I really love.
Vacatio for me is leave the office, leave the city and go away.
Wherever, just to relax and change the place we live all the time.
It's so refreshing and batteries charging.
My card is all about this, about leaving the city and see the world
even if this world is few miles away. 

Taking a vacation I connot with clear blue skies so my background couldn't be any other color just shades of blue. For this I heat embossed the Simon Says Stamp Grit Background stamp with the Fine Detail White Embossing Powder   and then played with Stormy Sky and Faded Jeans Distress Oxides. 
Then I stamped Stampers Anonymous Classics#1 
with Distress Oxide Walnut Stain, sprayed with water and that's it.

I die-cutted the Globe and covered it with Opal Magic Violet Gold paint to give some shine and touched with Distress Oxide Walnut Stain. 
For the bottom I used two raws of Cityscapes (thanks, Sandra!), colored them with Distress Oxides and painted with the same Opal Magic. 
Adhered all the elements with 3D dots and added my fave Quote-chip. 



Touchy Feely

Hi everyone and welcome to Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
This week the thing is to make a TOUCHY FEELY projects!

Take all your textures od 3D elements and join us ASAP!
Remember you can be a winner of $50 voucher and spend it 
at Simon Says Stamp Store which has a huge quantity of goodies!

Those who know me and my crafting know also that I love textures!
The more uneven surfaces the better. 
I love to make this kind of backgrounds and then see how the colors 
spread and mix on them giving unexpected results. 
This week I have made a tag with a touchy feely background.
See below the steps I have taken to make this project.

Few weeks ago I made a card with frame made with leftovers.
This week I decided to use them again. 
I never throw away leftovers after die cutting in a solid cardboards. 
I love to use negative die-cuts or use pieces for textured backgrounds. 

This time I took some pieces left from Pipelines die-cutting 
and applied them on my tag with Gel Medium. 
I covered all the surface with White Gesso making the last layer 
randomly uneven. Then I applied some Distress Oxides.

I applied also a darker color of Distress Oxide in between the cardboard.
Then I started to color the elements with Prima Oil Pastel Crayons, 
keeping them all in blue shades. Finally I covered all the surface with Opal Magic Yellow-Blue Acrylic Paint to give a nice shine. 

I stamped Artful Flowers and leaves from Spring Flowers on a watercolor paper.
I wanted them to pop-up so colored them with the most vibrant colors I have found in my stash: Candied Apple, Squeezed Orange and Fresh Lime. 

I fussy cut them and placed on my tag adhering with 3D dots.
