Simon Says - Inspired by an Artist

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 was inspired by the Life Is Beautiful Art Print by Banksy
to create my own using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Lady Rose and Worn Text inked with Black Soot and Barn Door Distress Archival inks, the Bricked Layering Stencil to create a monoprint effect on the background and added Prima Flowers coloured with Barn Door Distress Spray Stain.

I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to 6" x 8", spritzed with water and Hickory Smoke Distress Spray Stain.
I stamped the images and letters from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Lady Rose and Worn Text with Black Soot and Barn Door Distress Archival inks.
I spritzed Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Bricked Layering Stencil with Black Soot Distress Spray Stain, spritzed lightly with water, wiped the excess stain off the stencil edges
and pressed the stencil randomly on to the background to create a monoprint effect
I stamped the rest of the title, added drips at the bottom of the letters using Black Soot Distress Paint with a small brush and added splatters of Barn Door Distress Paint.
I spritzed cream coloured Prima flowers from my stash with Barn Door Distress Spray Stain
and fixed to the panel with Distress Collage Medium Matte
To finish I matted the panel on to Sizzix Mat Board trimmed to 10" x 8" and painted with Black Soot Distress Paint.
