Simon Says - Inspired By A Movie

 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 James Bond movies (too many favourites to choose just one) to create a card to send to a hero in your life. I used some of my favourite craft products from my hero Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous, Ranger and Sizzix.

I began by temporarily fixing the middle sized mask from the pack of Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Moon Mask Stencils to an A2 panel of Distress Watercolor card, smooshed Black Soot Distress Oxide ink on to the craft mat on my Glass Media Mat and spritzed with water. I laid the panel into the ink, dried and tapped back in repeatedly to pick up the remaining droplets, always drying between layers.
I sprayed around the moon with water and allowed the ink to wick in towards the centre. I sprayed the Diamonds Layering stencil with Black Soot Distress Spray Stain, spritzed with water and tapped randomly on to the panel to create a monoprint effect,
I stamped the image from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Dapper, inked with Black Soot Distress Archival.
I pounced White Gesso through the Numbered Mini Layering Stencil from Set 2 using a mini round blending tool.
I applied Distress Sterling Foundry Wax around the edges of the panel using my finger, added splatters and heat set. I fixed Tim Holtz Idea-ology Film Strip Ribbon in place using the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.
I smeared Distress Sterling Foundry Wax on to a scrap of Distress Watercolor card, heat set, die-cut using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Thin Thinlits and die-cut Alphanumeric Classic Lower Thinlits from Distress Black Alcohol Ink card to complete the sentiment.
I die-cut Tim Holtz/Sizzix Swirling Stars Thinlits from the Sterling Foundry Wax card and fixed the sentiment and stars in place with Distress Collage Medium. I trimmed the panel to 4" x 5.1/4" and fixed to an A2 white card blank covered with Distress Black Alcohol Ink card.
