Simon Says Stamp and Show - Challenge: Inspired by Summer Distress

This challenge inspired me to use 3 colours from the Summer collection of Distress inks: mowed lawn, salty sea and pickled raspberry. I started with a background of mowed lawn which I sprinkled water on. I cut out the hearts  and coloured them in with distress ink pickled raspberry and added a strip of  Tim Holtz's music tape. I used black archival ink for the saying.
I cut the swirls and coloured them in with distress ink salty ocean.

The ribbon was dyed with salty ocean.

I glued the lower heart onto a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Alpha cards alphabet letter M.
I would also like to enter this tag to Hel's Sunday Stamper week 220 - Green Tambourine

  2. You just don't realise how beautiful these new colours are until you see them done like this Carol, love the swirls and the hearts especially. Crafty hugs, Anne x

  3. Carol, your post really caught my eye as your tag is so brightly colored! Love it! I love the spritz and flick background you've given to the mowed lawn color. The blue flourishes and the pink hearts really look terrific. You have really showed off those summer distress colors well! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
