Simon Says - Beautiful Blooms

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 an Art Journal page in my Dylusion Small Creative Journal using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Blossom and Alphanumeric Bulletin Thinlits as the focal points on a Distress Paint background, stencilled and stamped using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Focus and Gradient Dot Layering Stencils and Faded Type stamp set.

I began by painting a light coat of Wild Honey Distress Paint on the pages followed by a coat of White Gesso. I fixed torn strips of Idea-ology Botanical Collage Paper in place using Distress Collage Medium and applied a light coat of White Gesso on top. I applied Peeled Paint Distress Paint through the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Focus Layering Stencil and Dusty Concord through the Gradient Dots Layering Stencil using a mini round blending tool and domed foams. I stamped the number image from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Faded Type randomly on the pages, inked with Dusty Concord Distress Archival ink and the script image, inked with Versamark and heat embossed with Simon Says White Detail Embossing Powder.
I painted a panel of Distress Watercolor card with Dusty Concord Distress Paint, die-cut the Alphanumeric Bulletin Thinlits and fixed to the pages with Distress Collage Medium. I die-cut the letters again from Distress Watercolor card and fixed in place.
I die-cut the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Blossom flower times from Distress Watercolor card, painted the base layer with Dusty Concord Distress Paint and darkened with Villainous Potion Distress Oxide ink using a mini round blending tool. I shaded the second layer lightly and just the inside edge of the third layer with Villainous Potion
I die-cut the flower centre from brown and yellow Idea-ology Classic KraftStock and the leaves from Simon Says Green Apple and Green Leaf cardstock, I shaded the edges of the leaves with Villainous Potion Distress Oxide, assembled the flower and leaves and fixed to the pages.
