SIMON MONDAY CHALLENGE: THANKS/THANKSGIVING!



Ciao a tutti! Spero abbiate trascorso uno splendido fine settimana e siate pronti a giocare con noi! Il tema di oggi nnon poteva essere che THANSK /THANKSGIVING! Ora sbizzarritevi con i vostri lavori! 
Per la seconda settimana abbiamo come Guest Designer del mese di Novembre ANITA HOUSTON, di THE ARTFUL MAVEN HAVEN, andate a sbirciare il suo spettacolare blog!
Oggi voglio celebrare il Thanksgiving con una card dai colori caldi, usando una tecnica che ho imparato quest'estate durante il corso online di TIM HOLTZ: CREATIVE CHEMISTRY 103, Distress Crayon Smudge.
Quest'estate ho frequentato il corso online, ma non ho avuto il tempo di provare tutte le tecniche, quindi ad una ad una proverò quelle che mi mancano! 

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and  you be ready to join   us! Our theme  today could only be THANKS/THANKSGIVING! Now we want to see your projects!
For the second week we have as Guest Designer of the month  ANITA HOUSTON, of THE ARTFUL MAVEN HAVEN, go to peek its spectacular blog!
Today I want to celebrate Thanksgiving with a grunge  card in warm and  autumn colors, using a technique I learned this summer during the online class  by TIM HOLTZ: CREATIVE CHEMISTRY 103,  Distress Smudge Crayon.
This summer I attended the course online, but I have not had time to try all the techniques, then one by one I'll try all the techniques!



Questa tecnica è divertentissima! Si usano le dita per stendere il colore, in questo caso Distress crayons! Il mio consiglio per chi non l'avesse ancora fatto, è di frequentare il corso online, è molto bello, utile e pieno di consigli e trucchi! Ovviamente tutto quello che serve per mettere in pratica queste tecniche lo trovate sullo store di Simon Says Stamp!

I have really enjoyed using this technique! You use your fingers to paint your project, in this case Distress crayons! The result is fantastic, you can give the desired intensity to colors  and mix them so incredible! My advice for those who have not already done so, is to attend the online class, it's fabulous, helpful and full of tips and tricks! Of course, all that is needed to use these techniques can be found on the Simon Says Stamp store!



Per lo sfondo ho usato il mini stencil con foglie e rami  insieme alla texture paste. Colorare è stato favoloso, spero che queste sfumature così calde e abbastanza inusuali per me, raggiungano l'effetto che volevo: ricordare l'autunno e i suoi colori!

For the background I used the mini stencil with leaves and branches together with the texture paste. Coloring was fabulous, I hope that these shades so warm and quite unusual for me, get  the effect I wanted: to remember fall and its colors!



Per dare luce alla card ho usato il Cardstock Metallic in colore Copper e ho utilizzato al centro del fiocco di spago , una Gum drop colorata con Alcohol ink.

To give a touch of brightness to  my card,  I used Metallic Cardstock Copper and the center of the twine bow, a gumdrop painted with Alcohol Ink..




Ora tocca a voi! Come sempre partecipando alla nostra sfida potrete vincere un buono a estrazione da 50$ da spendere sul favoloso store di SIMON SAYS STAMP!
