Simon Says Challenge: No Rules!
The Simon Says Challenge is a "no rules", do whatever you like type of challenge. My favorite. I have chosen to do a tag using Dyan Reaveley's stamps. The face is from the Dylusions collection called "Bits of This". First I sprayed a manila tag (Ranger's size 8 tag) with Dylusion spray inks. I used Fresh Lime and Vibrant Turquoise. A quick dry with my heat tool. I stamped a large leaf pattern with Ranger's Rusty Hinge Distress Ink randomly on the tag. I stamped the face on a scrap piece of practice paper card stock using Ranger's Black Archival Ink and then colored the lips in with my Distress Markers. Using my Gelly Roll pen called Clear Star, I added some highlights and sparkle to her face. There was an acrylic butterfly in my stash left over from some long forgotten class so I dropped a little alcohol ink on it, dried it, then stamped a crackle finish on it using a crackle stamp by IndigoBlu. The butterfly stays in place nicely with the help of some Glossy Accents. Next came the phrase by Stampotique and a piece of ribbon dyed with spray inks to match.
