Simon Says Stamp and Show ... Anything Goes!

Hello Everybody! Thank you for playing along with our last Challenge! The winners will be announced this Wednesday .... so don't forget to check back ... this could be your winning week! This week Simon Says Stamp and Show ... Anything Goes! If you want to join in the fun ... all you need to do is ... make something ... anything ... pop it on your blog ... and come back here and link up so everyone can see what you made! Before you start take a look at what the Design Team came up with...
Sarah was feeling rather British after seeing the Olympic Torch run past her street so she decided to create three funky and patriotic cards using the fabulous Loverly London and London Underground stamps from Artistic Outpost. She used Ranger's Pool and Red pepper Alcohol inks, Glossy Cardstock and Black Archival Ink.

Tracy has gone for a real industrial feel to her decorative heart using Tim's Riveted Patchwork technique from A Compendium Of Curiosities Volume ll along with masses of Metal Foil Tape and Alcohol Inks ginger and pitch black.

Candy Colwell
Candy was inspired by Graphic 45's Old Curiosity Shoppe papers to create this whimsical cabinet filled with all sorts of curiosities! Covered in those fab papers and given Tim Holtz' Pulley Wheels, this unfinished wooden box comes to life. The glass doors were heat embossed using Tim Holtz' Pencil and Paper and Artful Artifacts Stamp Sets. Doesn't this make you CURIOUS?

Terry was in a store, found these fabulous photo-frames and just had to alter them! She used lots of Gesso, Distress Stains, Distress Crackle Paint and Crackle Rock Candy as well as Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo and Weathered Wood inks. Hand-made roses lie on top of  Foliage leaves from The Tim, and last but not least, she added a fabby Rosette to finish off her project. 
Dan
Dan was very numerically minded this week, inspired partly by the Cavallini and Company numbers paper tape.   Other products he used included panels taken from the Lost and Found paper stack, a Tim Holtz Numeral and the Ultimate Grunge and Creative Musings stamp sets.
Linda Elbourne
I made a tag this week. Building up with lots of layers starting with Picket Fence and Faded Jeans Distress Stains. More layers were added with Olive Archival; Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a Gold Dabber. The stamps I used were Tim Holtz Steampunk; Shabby French and Bitty Grunge.
