Also over at Simon Says Stamp and Show the challenge this week is "Inspired By Wendy Vecchi" and you are supposed to use or do something on the project that inspires you by Wendy. SSS is giving away a 50.00 gift certificate to their store. Plus they have 25% off Wendy products until the 29th YAY!!
One other challenge is the folks at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog 's challenge this week is Autumn Leaves! One of my absolute favorite things!!
So for this particular tag I incorporated all three challenges into one. The butterflies are Wendy's stamp and so is the word "Art" I absolutely love Wendy stamps and they are so awesome, I always have fun with any of her products. I also made the background using the Tim technique Crumpled Craft Suede, it's a super fun technique and if you look closely the paper actually looks vieny like a real leaf would so it's perfect for this background. I cut out some of the smaller leaves from Tim's fall decorative strip die and used the glassine as well for that. The larger leaves were made by using Tim's Fall Leave Big Sizzix die and some resist patterned paper and distress stains in various colors. I also stamped onto them with different stamps and Adirondack ink.
The glue was still drying when I took the picture so the leaves have a small brown spot in the middle but those won't show once dry.
