SIMON MONDAY CHALLENGE LITTLE CRITTERS


Ciao a tutti!!!  Protagonisti della nostra sfida settimanale su Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog sono gli animali! Credo non sarà difficile preparare un progetto con questo tema: potete scegliere di dedicarlo al vostro amico animale qualunque esso sia, oppure scegliere fra le miriadi di timbri e altri materiali che popolano le vostre scrap room!
Questa settimana è ancora con noi, come Designer Spotlight,  Sonia, per chi non l'avesse ancora visitato ecco il link al suo bellisimo blog!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
Thank you for joining us for the Home Sweet Home Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the theme is Little Critters!
Whether you choose to feature your own pets or prefer to delve into the wider animal kingdom we will be looking forward to seeing which little critters you choose to feature on your creations!
This week is still with us, as Designer Spotlight, Sonia, for those who have not visited her yet,  here is the link to her fabulous  blog!


Chi mi conosce sa la mia passione per i progetti a tema mare, anche questa volta mi sono fatta tentare dalle creature marine di Tim, questa è la mia preferita! Questo timbro è sicuramente uno di quelli che amo di più e mi piace poterlo usare in questa versione steampunk!

Those who know me will not be surprised by this sea theme project, this time I'm fascinated by Tim's marine creatures, this is my favorite! This stamp is definitely one of my favorites and I like to use it in this steampunk version!


Per la mia creatura marina ho preparato un foglio piccolo di Heavystock con Distress oxides Vintage Photo e Iced Spruce e ho timbrato con Wendy Vecchi Archival Ink Potting soil. Sui tentacoli per dare texture ho usato Ranger Hot Cocoa Liquid Pearls .

To create my sea critter I prepared a small sheet of Heavystock with Distress Oxides, Vintage Photo and Iced Spruce,  and I stamped  it with Wendy Vecchi Archival Ink Potting soil. Above tentacles to give texture I used Ranger Hot Cocoa Liquid Pearls.





La base del progetto è un Burlap panel spogliato dalla stoffa. A volte capita di sbagliare tutto, o di iniziare un progetto  credendo che esca come lo pensiamo... poi il risultato è diverso e devi buttare via tutto! In questo caso ho salvato la base e l'ho usata oggi ricoprendola con Grit paste. Asciugata la Grit Paste ho colorato con Distress Paint Ground Espresso e ho spruzzato un filo di Lindy's Stamp Gang Tawny Turquoise Moon Shadow Mist. Mi piace particolarmente questo colore perchè ha una base marrone e dei brillantini assolutamente meravigliosi che stanno tra il turchese e il verde! L'effetto ovviamente è più bello vedendo il progetto dal vivo!

The base of the project is a recycled burlap panel stripped of cloth. Sometimes I make mistakes, at the start I think  the result will be fabulous...... then the result is different and you have to throw it all away, but I save everything  that is possible! In this case I saved the base and  I covered it  with Grit paste and stencil. Once Grit Paste dried,  I used Ground Espresso Distress paint  and sprinkled a thread of Lindy's Stamp Gang Tawny Turquoise Moon Shadow Mist. I especially like this color because it has a brown base and  absolutely wonderful shades that are between turquoise and green! The effect is more beautiful if you can look   the project from your hands, but it's not possible and so.... these are the pictures!!!




Per ottenere l'effetto Patina /Rust ho usato  due set di Prima Marketing perfetti per creare questo look! Filo metallico, fiori marini, arrugginiti pure loro,  e la mia creatura può vivere in un ambiente adatto a lei!

To get the Patina / Rust effect I used two sets by  Prima Marketing, perfect for creating this look! Wire, rusted sea flowers and my creature can live in an environment suitable!!
