Simon Says Stamp and Show...

With not much time to spare, but in time I have my Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge done!
I love these challenges.  This weeks challenge is Inspired By. 
 These challenges are so fun and always get the inspiration flowing! 
 So without further ado here is my Inspired by piece.  
 I guess you could say I am inspired by the colors in nature.  
I love earth tones.  They make me feel peaceful. 
 I cut a tag about in half two make it interactive.  
I used Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn and Walnut Stain Distress Ink 
to ink the tag.  I then did the Spritz and Flick to create the water droplets...still my favorite technique 
from Ranger U.  Still makes me giddy every time, lol.  
The butterflies are Memory Box Dies.  I adhered them to Wendy Vecchi's Clearly for Art
transparency, cut them out, turned them over and applied Alcohol inks in various colors. 
Love the way it gives it a stained glass look.  Then heated it to shape the butterflies so they are fluttering about.  The nibs are painted with Distress Paints, Salty Ocean and Picket Fence.  
Then I just stamped a verse, flourishes and the word Moments.  They are all Tim Stamps. 
Added some Idea-ology fun and there you have it.  

Take a peek over at Simon Says Stamp and Show...there is tons of inspiration to be found! 
Hope you enjoy my take on Inspired By....
Until next time!

  1. Yvonne...your tag is gorgeous! I love your background...so mottled and pretty! Love the stamps you've used on this tag...the sentiment is wonderful. LOVE LOVE the butterflies! How you have constructed them is really cool! I love how you've cut the tag in half and combined it again with jump rings. The embellishments of the ticket, hinge clip and baubles are a really neat assemblage! Love your work!!! Thanks so much for sharing this lovely tag with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
