Simon Says - Remembrance/Thinking Of You

 Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I created a Thinking Of You card using the new Tim Holtz Distress White and Kraft HeavyStock, Distress Oxide inks, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Faded Type and Simple Sayings, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Skeleton Leaves and Fall Foliage Thinlits and Idea-ology Field Notes Snippets Ephemera.

I began by trimming Distress White HeavyStock to 5" x 6", smooshed Antique Linen, Crackling Campfire and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide inks on to the craft mat on my Glass Media Mat and spritzed with water. I laid the card panel in the ink, dried and tapped back into the remaining droplets repeatedly drying between layers. 
I stamped the text images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Faded Type inked with Crackling Campfire and Ground Espresso Distress Oxide inks
I die-cut the leaves from backgrounds I had created previously using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Skeleton Leaves and Fall Foliage Thinlits. I tapped each leaf on to a Versamark ink pad and heat embossed using Ranger Superfine Clear Embossing powder
I inked the sentiment and frame from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Simple Sayings with Ground Espresso Distress Archival and stamped on to a left over scrap of my inked background.
I fixed the leaves in place using Distress Collage Medium Matte, curling up the edges with my fingers to create dimension and added Tim Holtz Idea-ology Field Notes Snippers Ephemera.
I fixed the panel to Distress Kraft HeavyStock, scored and folded to create a 5.1/2" x 6.1/2" card, added the sentiment popped up on Sizzix Foam Adhesive and splatters of Ground Espresso Distress Paint using my splatter brush.
