Ciao a tutti e buon inizio di primavera! Questa settimana il clima è decisamente cambiato e Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog si è adeguato e ha scelto come tema per voi Flower Power! Perfetto per la stagione vero? Quindi.... vi aspettiamo con i vostri lavori e se avete bisogno di ispirarvi potete andare a vedere  progetti dell'intero Design team! Un'altra settimana con noi per Paula Rooner come nostra Designer Spotlight di Aprile, QUI il suo meraviglioso blog!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
Thank you for joining us for the Doodle Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we are challenging you to add some flowers to your project:  Flower Power!!!
Another week for Paula Rooner as Designer Soitlight, HERE her fabulous blog!

Per il progetto di oggi ho scelto un motivo floreale di Tim Holtz disponibile in 3 versioni: timbro, stencil e fustella. Ho usato questo motivo per decorare le piccole case di Tim con colori inevitabilmente primaverili!

To stay completely on the theme, today I chose a floral motif by Tim Holtz available in three versions: stamp, stencil and die. I used this motif to decorate Tim's little houses with inevitably spring colors!

Per lo fondo ho usato gli Oxides in vari colori, polvere trasparente  e distress ink pad per sporcare i bordi.

I used Distress oxides in various spring colors to create background and I used Distress ink pad to highlight the edges.

In questa casetta ho utilizzato il timbro dal set Vines & roses di Tim Holtz Stampers Anomynous. Ho timbrato con inchiostro bianco su un cartoncino kraft e ho usato la polvere trasparente scaldata con embossing. A questo punto ho colorato con i distress Oxides.

In this little house I used  Tim Holtz Stampers Anomynous Vines & roses. I stamped it with white ink on a kraft cardstock and I used Ranger Clear embossing powder with Heat tool. In this way I created a resist effect and I colored with Distress oxides.

Qui potete vedere bene l'effetto della polvere sul bianco, crea un effetto resist con un colore non uniforme  davvero interessante... a me piace molto, spero anche a voi!

In the picture above you can clearly see the effect of clear powder on  the white ink, it creates a resist effect with a non-uniform color really interesting ... I like very much, I hope you too!

Nella seconda ho usato la fustella Tim Holtz Sizzix Mixed Media. Ho preparato prima lo sfondo con gli Oxides e sempre con gli stessi inchiostri due fogli dai quali ho ricavato le parti colorate da usare per riempire la fustellata, come potete vedere sotto.

For the second house I used  Tim Holtz Sizzix Mixed Media 5 die. First I prepared the background with the Oxides and  with the same inks I prepared  two sheets from which I got the colored parts to be used to fill the die, as you can see below.

Nel retro della casetta arancio rosa e sopra ai teti di entrambe ho usato la versione stencil con Distress oxide Walnut stain.

In the back of the pink/orange house and above the roofs of both I used the stencil version with Distress oxide Walnut stain.

It was such a pleasure to see how you used one design (Tim's roses) in different ways (I only have the stencil). I love the look of the embossed stamping and adding back multi-colored bits to the die-cut. I imagine these were a lot of fun to make and they are REALLY cute!

Your floral houses are simply stunning... such amazing use of colour and wonderful work with the media dies too. Amazing patience to put all those tiny bits back into the spaces but the effect is totally worth it!!
