Simon Says - Bright Cheerful Colours

 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...
which I have to say is a little bit out of my "more of a pastel or vintage tones kind of a person" comfort zone but it just so happened, I had some very bright and cheerful backgrounds inspired by the Tim Holtz Distress Sprays YouTube Live Q&A tucked away in my backgrounds box and they were perfect for my venture into the world of all things bright and cheerful.

Both backgrounds were created on A2 panels of Distress Watercolor card using Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey, Evergreen Bough and Salty Ocean Distress Spray Stains. The sprays were applied to the textured side of the Distress Watercolor card panel on the left and Distress Grit Paste applied through the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Floral Layering Stencil. On the panel on the right, Distress Texture Paste was applied first using the same stencil on the smooth side of the card and once the paste had dried, the panel was sprayed with the same colours of spray stains.
I inked the script stamp from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Flower Shop with Black Soot Distress Archival ink and stamped randomly on both backgrounds. I did the same with the circular image from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Field Notes, inked with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Superfine White Embossing Powder.
I added splatters of White and Black Gesso, sprinkled with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder and heat set.
I trimmed the panels to measure 4" x 5.1/4" and matted on to A2 white card blanks. To finish I fixed Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Sentiment Label Stickers to scraps of Distress Watercolor card, trimmed to leave a small border and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte.
