Simon Says - Vacation

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 a cover for a travel notebook inspired by an intrepid adventurer off on vacation. I used a Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Baseboard Doll, Stampers Anonymous Numeric Mini Layering Stencil, Sizzix Stacked Circles Thinlits, Baggage Claim BigZ die, Idea-ology Typeset Collage Paper and Theories Quote Chips.
I began by adding Idea-ology Ephemera Snippets and strips of Idea-ology Typeset Collage Paper to an A2 panel of Distress Watercolor card. I applied Distress Texture Paste Opaque through Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Numbers Mini Layering Stencil from Set 7 on to Distress Watercolor card and once the paste had dried, die-cut using the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stacked Circles Thinlits. I fixed the circles to the panel and applied a coat of Distress Collage Medium over the entire panel. I coloured the circles and areas of the panel with Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain Distress Crayons, blending the colours out with my finger.
I die-cut the suitcases from Distress Cracked Leather Cardstock, coloured with Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo Distress Spray Stains using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Baggage Claim BigZ die, added the handles and corners die-cut from Idea-ology Classic KraftStock and Metallic KraftStock and fixed to the panel with foam squares to create dimension. I coloured the Baseboard Doll using Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Crayons and a Distress Detailer Brush, fixed in place with foam squares and added splatters of Picket Fence Distress Paint over the panel.
I applied the Distress Embossing Dabber around the edges of Idea-ology Theories Quote Chips, sprinkled with Rusty Hinge Distress Embossing Glaze, heat set, added Idea-ology Hardware Heads and fixed to the panel with Distress Collage Medium. I added Labeled Remnant Rubs, covered the front of the shop bought notebook with Distress Black HeavyStock and added the panel.
