Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the We’ve Got Your Number Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we are challenging you to explore The Great Outdoors
think beautiful trees, deep blue skies, fields of flowers and stunning landscapes!
We are showcasing Paper Artsy Products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in, but if you have them we would love to see them used.
We are welcoming the lovely and super talented Dr Sonia aka Cards Crafts, Kids Projects   into the Designer Spotlight this week! If you haven’t visited her blog you are in for a real treat!



Il nostro tema di oggi mi ha fatto pensare al cielo, soprattutto allo spazio e  mi è venuta l'idea di realizzare dei fiori dall'aspetto non proprio usuale, fiori che nella mia immaginazione provengono dal cosmo! Poco ragionamento e moltissimo istinto in questo progetto! Eccovi il mio breve tutorial.

Our weekly theme made me think about sky, especially the space and I had this idea to  create unusual flowers, flowers that in my imagination come from the cosmos! No reasoning and much instinct in this project! Here's my short tutorial.


Ho iniziato preparando le basi per il mio lavoro una tela canvas  e alcuni fogli di Mixed media Cardstock colorati con  Fresco Paints e Infusions di Paper Artsy  e  Distress oxides.

I started preparing the bases for my work: a  canvas and  some sheets of  Mixed Media Cardstock, everything painted  with Fresco Paints and Infusions of Paper Artsy and Distress Oxides.


Questa è il risultato finale della tela. Dopo aver applicato i Fresco Paints ho aggiunto texture con uno stencil di Tim Holtz e con un  timbro da  Seth Apter 01 Eclectica 3 di Paper Artsy.

This is the final result of my work. Once canvas has dried I've added textures with a Tim Holtz stencil and  with a stamp from Paper Artsy Seth Apter 01 Eclectica 3 set.


Nella foto sopra potete vedere il foglio che ho preparato con Fresco Paint e Dylusion Paint, per timbrare ho usato l'inchiostro High Dive di Simon Says Stamp.
E ora i fiori.

Above you can see the sheet I prepared with Fresco Paint and Dylusion Paint, for the Seth Apter stamp from the Set Apter 02 Eclectica 3 set I used the Simon Says Stamp's High Dive Ink.
And now the flowers



Per creare i miei fiori cosmici ho tagliato diversi pezzi con la fustella DRIP DROP Etched Dies di Seth Apter,  poi li ho arrotolati su stessi  e fermati con la colla a caldo e aperti. Prima di arrotolarli ho dato luce con i flakes Indigoblu.

To create my cosmic flowers I cut some pieces with the DRIP DROP Etched Dies of Seth Apter, then I rolled them up and  blocked them with hot glue. Before rolling them I gave  a touch of  light with Indigoblu ROYAL PEACOCK MEGAFLAKE Gilding Flakes. Once ready I gave them shape by opening the petals
















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!
