Simon Says Challenge: Hey Girl!
The challenge at Simon Says this time is anything with a feminine touch. That does not necessarily mean pink...whew! I'm still not crazy about pink and I don't see that changing any time soon. I used a feminine looking stamp by Alpha Stamps called "Why She Sings". I stamped her on a kraft colored paper and then used a phrase by Hampton Art. The borders are all Dyan Reaveley stamps. All the coloring was done with Distress Markers and Gelly Roll pens. I matted this panel to white paper and then to a patterned paper. The entire unit was glued to a piece of paper from Tim Holtz's collection called Paper Stash. I cut the paper to become a folded card measuring 5" x 6 1/2" and used the patterned side of the paper as the outside of the card. For a tiny bit of bling I added a few dots of Ranger's Liquid Pearls in the Bisque color. The flowers in the lower right corner match the paper used in the matting. I distressed the paper, cut the flowers using Tim's die called Tattered Florals, put a brad in the center of one and then glued all three down with glue dots.
