I have been quite giddy with excitement since I was asked to be in the Designer Spotlight for the month of June at Simon Says Stamp!! I feel so honoured to be crafting along with such a talented group of designers! A huge thank you to Simon Says Stamp!
And so, over at Simon Says Monday Challenge -
and the theme this week is Masculine! The Design Team are showcasing Darkroom Door products this week. You don't have to use them to join in, but if you do have them, the DT would love to see how you use them!
Mr first project uses one of the Tim Holtz Etcetera tags, along with Darkroom Door stamps. You can see a list of the products I used at the end of this post.
I have a few step by steps to share with you.
I wanted to add a little texture so I mixed some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide with Ranger Texture Paste, it coloured the paste beautifully.
I wanted to highlight the texture paste even more so I went over it all with Distress Crayon in Vintage Photo and rubbed it gently over the stencilled words.
To create the 'frame' around the sentiment, I stamped and cut up the Filmstrip border and added this to the edges of the sentiment.
I just love the Picture Wheel die by Tim Holtz. I die cut it and coloured it with Distress Oxide and then spritzed it with water to give a mottled effect. The pictures were cut from some Tim Holtz paper from my stash (apologies, I cannot remember which paper stack this came from).
I gathered all of the elements I wanted to add to my tag, including the glass dome which I placed over the lens of the camera to give it a more realistic look. I decided to add some of Tim's Idea-ology filmstrip to the finished tag.
Another look at the finished tag. I thought it still needed a little 'something' so I added a couple of little camera charms from my stash.
I hope you will join in Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week, the team has some fabulous inspiration for you - and we all know how difficult it is to do Masculine!
There is always an amazing prize on offer....
The products I used for my project are available from Simon Says Stamp, I have listed the products below that I used.
