and there are not 1, not 2 but 3 fabulous Simon Says Stamp Grab Bags for the young budding artists to win...

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...
Did I happen to mention how much I love Prize Ribbon, the latest colour to join the Distress Family, in fact, you could say it is just my cup of tea so I decorated an #8 Etcetera Tag to celebrate it's arrival.

I began by trimming Distress Watercolor card to be slightly larger than the #8 tag, smooshed my favourite Custom Ink Pad (Antique Linen/Old Paper Distress Inks and Speckled Egg and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Inks) on to the craft mat on my Glass Media Mat, spritzed with water and laid the panel on to the inks. 
I dried the panel and tapped it back into the inks repeatedly to pick up the remaining droplets, drying between layers.
I inked the background stamp from Tim Holtz/Stampers Vines and Roses with Prize Ribbon Distress Ink, spritzed with water and holding the stamp in my hands, pressed on to the panel.
I fixed Sizzix Adhesive Sheet to Distress Watercolor card, coloured with Prize Ribbon and Antique Linen Distress Oxide inks using a mini round blending tool and brown Classic KraftStock, die-cut the tea cup using 'Tim Holtz/Sizzix Cafe Colorize Thinlits and assembled following the indent marks left by the die on the die-cut pieces.
I die-cut the title from brown Classic KraftStock using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Label and Classic Lower Thinlits.
I applied Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink through the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Splatters Mini Layering Stencil from Set 3
I die-cut small hearts using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Heartfelt BigZ die, coloured with Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide ink, fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium and added Glossy Accents to the hearts and Classic Lower letters.
