Something Messy


I've allowed myself one last play as I am knee deep in a college assignment which I have to submit before I go on my holidays on Thursday, but I needed a break and Simon Says Stamp and Show are asking for something messy.

I was inspired by both Paula and Helen to create this wooden plaque as I loved the colours they'd both used on recent makes.  I also wanted to play some more with my distress paints, white Dylusion ink spray and of course I my new T!m stamp set.

I'm also playing along with Out of a Hat Creations again with my row of birds.

The plaque is a great idea Sam and you have made it very special with the colours and images you have chosen to decorate it.

Good luck with the college work and hope you have a great holiday

Great piece, I love how the washed out, blurred background accentuates the rainy feel inspired by the brolly man. Thanks so much for joning us for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge!
