Simon Says Stamp and Show....

Welcome... hope you had a wonderful weekend I enjoyed an exciting day at Ally Pally with my crafty blog buddies... I may have bought quite a few new goodies which I'm hoping to get my creative hands onto later this week. So it's Monday morning which means.... A wonderful and exciting


Show your... Distressed & Sanded Artwork
I recently purchased the fantastic I-top brad maker from Simon Says Stamp and couldn't wait to incorporate it into a project! Here I have stamped some basic grey manila papers with a spider form one of Wendy vecchi stamps... created my brad (this actually has a badge backing) and added distress inks on the edges! The flowers are cut from tattered florals die and inked with distress inks & perfect pearl mini mister mist! The white flower I have dabbed on snow cap paint dabber and in the centre some pearls and stickles!
The sanding bit isn't immediately obvious... the tag from Wendy's ticket to art I have stamped onto grungepaper with black archival I inked all over with distress inks! I then scrunched it and enhanced the creases by sanding them! I've distressed the edges of my card and some of the patterned papers too. A Wendy Vecchi butterfly was stamped onto acetate then coloured behind with alcohol ink and to finish, a shrink plastic birdcage.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, HuGs Kim :)

Kim, this is absolutely gorgeous. Love the butterfly on acetate. I would not have thought to put a spider in the center of the flower . . . but now! Beautiful!

Very cool, Kim. I love the collection of elements, especially the acetate butterflies and the shrink plastic birdcage. And your jumbo brad is terrific - love the way you stamped a spider on it.
