SIMON MONDAY CHALLENGE: CITRUS WITH A TWIST!

Ciao a tutti, settimana di Ferragosto, quasi tutti in vacanza , ma noi ... no! Eccoci con una proposta super estiva: un tocco di colore estivo! SIMON SAYS STAMP MONDAY CHALLENGE BLOG vi chiede di pensare a qualcosa che ricordi la stagione , che sia fresco oppure  neon o il meraviglioso Twisted Citron , vogliamo vedere qualcosa che sia uno scoppio d'estate!

Hi to everyone! Twisted Citron brings to  mind about all things citrus, neon, and fresh! This week from oranges to bright fresh color we want to see how you’ll use citrus… with your own twist.
 
 






 
 
 


Lavorando a questo challenge ho provato e preparato diversi sfondi. Ne ho scelto uno in cui ho  embossato a caldo con polvere bianca  il timbro Cracks di Tim Holtz/ Stampers Anonymous. e poi
 colorato con il metodo "tradizionale" e Distress ink Pads in colori assolutamente estivi e vivaci per restare nel nostro tema!

While I have worked  for this challenge, I  created differents backgrounds!
For my tag I chose one with white  embossing powder and Tim's stamps "Cracks".

I  have  colored  my tag  with Distress ink Pads and Ink Blending tool , bright colors are perfect  for this week!




I fiori sono parte del set Flower garden di Tim , che oramai sono diventati un classico da possedere assolutamente! Li ho colorati con Distress markers Tumbled glass, Mermaid lagoon e Twisted citron.
Il nastro fatto con l'immancabile Crinkle ribbon è tinto con Distress sprays, che secondo me sono assolutamenti favolosi per questo utilizzo e non solo!

The flowers are part of the set Flower Garden,  a set that became a classic! They are colored with Distress markers Tumbled glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted citron.
Distress sprays and Crinckle Ribbon works wonderfully together! Sunny shades for the top of my tag!


 

Per aggiungere un tocco d'estate , ho creato un praticello con la garza. L'ho colorata con Distress sprays Twisted Citron e Moved Lawn. Sopra al colore in queste occasioni, passo uno strato sottile di Glue n seal che "irrigidisce " lievemente la garza, in modo da poterla un po' modellare.

To add a touch of summer, I created a small lawn with cheesecloth. I colored with Distress sprays Twisted Citron and Moved Lawn and  I have covered the cheesecloth with a thin layer of n Glue seal,  that  "hardens" it slightly, so that I can give some shape to my lawn.




 
 
Il metallo è come sempre trattato con Distress paints !
Metal embellishment was treated with Distress paints as usual!

This is such a great tag, Barbara! I really love the bright colors and I thought the way you did the layer of grass was nothing short of Brilliant! You've created such great texture here. Wish I could run through this scene in real life!
