Simon Says Challenge


As you know I can't stop playing with my distress stains, so this time I made something for this weeks Simon Says Challenge, which is anything but a card.  The background was coloured with antique linen and wild honey stain.  I then used the timeworks masks with the walnut stain and vintage photo stains.  I die cut the car from brown core card and run it through the diamonds in the rough cuttlebug folder and sanded it back.  I cut the trim from corrugated cardboard.  The cogs are cut from cork, chipboard and cardboard and inked with the darker coloured stains.  I also die cut a flourish and inked with walnut stain stain.  I stamped the phrase with vintage photo stain, ripped around it and coloured the background with antique linen stain.  I cobbled it all together and this is what I came up with.

Great piece love all the materials you used. Love how the stain does not blend but stays true and stands out against the other colour's. XOXO Zoe
