Ciao a tutti! Spero stiate passando una bella estate nonostante il caldo assurdo! Noi di Simon says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog siamo sempre qui per iniziare con voi la settimana! oggi il tema è Distress it! Io mi sono proprio sentita a casa, ogni mio progetto è Distress it e questo non poteva certo essere differente!
Seconda settimana per la nostra Designer Spotlight di Luglio,  Beulah  Bee QUI potete ammirare le sue favolose e assolutamente originali creazioni!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
Thank you for joining us for the Red White Blue Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we are challenging you to Distress It.
There are many ways to distress and age a project, from inking and sanding to scraping along the edges with a paper distresser or a sharp pair of scissors. We will be looking forward to seeing how you distress your creation!
Second week for our July Designer Spotlight, Beulah Bee, HERE you can admire its fabulous and absolutely original creations!

Ho scelto di fare una tag perchè è la dimensione che meglio mi rappresenta e insieme al fatto di distressare ogni mio lavoro direi che rende bene l'idea di chi sono! Che sono in fissa assoluta con le Paper Dolls direi che si è capito in queste ultime settimane, ma non posso farne a meno!

I chose to make a tag because it is the size that best represents me, along with the fact that I distress every  work is my main feature! I'm obsessed by the  Paper Dolls,  would say that you understood this during last weeks, I can not be without them!

Ho inserito in questa tag tutti gli elementi che preferisco: la mia palette di colori favorita, turchese marrone, una delle forme che preferisco gli ingranaggi in tutte le possibili dimensioni e varietà, stencil più texture , ho rovinato i bordi, ho arrugginito le ruote, ho aggiunto ( e questa per me è una novità!) le micro beads che trovo meravigliose!

I've included in this tag all the elements I prefer: my favorite color palette, turquoise brown, one of the shapes that I adore,  gears in all possible sizes and varieties, stencil and textures paste, I've distressed the  edges, rusted my wheels and  I made a new addition: microbeads,  I thinkk they are wonderful!

La doppia parola DREAMS è voluta, per sottolineare la speranza e la voglia di avere sogni!

The double word DREAMS is not a mistake, I inserted in a different color to highlight and emphasize the hope and the desire to have dreams!

Per lo sfondo ho mischiato gli Oxides con i Distress inks tradizionali, il risultato mi piace, c'è ancora moltissimo da provare con gli Oxides!

For the background I mixed the Oxides with traditional Distress Inks,  I love so much the result! There are a lot of experiments to try with new Oxides!

Con questo caldo ammetto di essere in difficoltà a stare seduta davanti al computer! Per oggi mi fermo qui, spero il lavoro vi sia piaciuto!

With such high temperatures I admit I'm in trouble sitting in front of the computer! I stop here today, I hope  you enjoyed my work!
