Simon Says: Distress It!

Happy Wednesday crafty friends that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!


This week Simon Says: Distress It! The design team is featuring Tim Holtz products, you don't have to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

I started with a piece of Canson Watercolor paper and placed my Simon Says Stamp Leaf Die to find the right placement for my monkey from the Simon Says Stamp Hello There stamp set. I stamped him with Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink on my panel and again on masking paper. I masked the monkey and took my Heffy Doodle Unbe-leaf-able stencil with some Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Ink.  I went over the entire panel with a mix of Mowed Lawn and Crushed Olive Distress Oxide Inks to soften the darker leaves in the background.


I then colored in my monkey with my Copic markers in E49, E47, E44, E42 and E41. Once that was complete I added some dot detail, went over the nose and eyes with a black gellyroller pen and added some white highlights and glossy accents.


I then glued my leaves die and cut the excess and stamped a few hearts and added some red stickles and some sequins.
