This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge. we are finishing our STAMPtember celebration including a challenge to finishing off a project with a stamp.
It all started with a session of playing with stencils embossing paste and Manila tags. All laying out on my very messy desk.
I had a lovely brown shimmery spray out on my desk too which I used to coat the dried embossing paste on my tag.
I loved the effect and decided to add some of the stencil and paste over the sweet photo from the Tim Holtz - Ideaolog - Found Friends
And then as luck would have it the photo got pushed aside and landed on top of my tag and inspired me to keep going.
I decided I needed a background which I pulled a piece of cardboard which got a coat of paint, mist and more paint.
I misted a few feathers and a resin angel to match
Some lace misted and tied to the top of the tag.
Flowers spritzed with gold and brown mists.
I added a few buttons painted with gold paint and some rosettes with a little aging.
My finishing touch... a few stamped words on coordinating paper and added to the side of the photo.

Don't forget that all this month is a party at Simon Says Stamp celebrating Stamptember!
Why Stamptember? Here is a little info on why Simon Says Stamp celebrates stamping in September. Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. For more than 10 years we have celebrated rubber stamping and its glory. We work to bring companies from around the world together in a one stop shopping environment. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a “STAMPtember®" event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the delight of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complementing ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making, scrapbooking, mixed media and many forms of altering and expressing art.
Don't forget to come join in on the fun and show off your stencils or stamps!
Have a fab week!
