Simon Says Stamp and Show your favourite Word!

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 ... A Word! If you want to join in the fun ... all you need to do is ... create a project with a word ... 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...
Lynne Forsythe

Lynne has ALWAYS wanted to create a chunky ATC and she finally made one!! She covered the wood with lots of Multi Medium, Tissue Wrap and Gesso. Spritzed on little homemade mist, Weathered Wood Reinker and a mixture of Perfect Pearls. To finish the ATC off, she dipped a flower and leaf into Beeswax melted in a Melting Pot.  

Tracy Evans
One of Tracy's favourite words of the minute is IMAGINE highlighted here with the use of the IMAGINE die which inspired Tracy's decorated book cover. The image from Winged Things 1 gave Tracy the perfect image to use in her imaginitive piece. Wings from the Regal Adornments along with a metal Word Band added to the overall piece.
Candy has created this 6x6 chipboard faux tile frame in honor of her favorite word "FAMILY".  A dimensional filmstrip complete with "reels", a Mini Cabinet Card and Tim Holtz' Family die cut create an unmistakeable nostalgic feel.  The faux tile was achieved using molding paste and White Gesso.  The rich colors courtesy of Toad Hall, Snowflake, Old Gold Paper Artsy Fresco Paints and Queens Gold Embossing Powder.
Sarah's word and mood are both Botanical! She created a pair of tags with a faux batik crackled background using Wild Honey Distress Stain, Distress inks, Paper Artsy's great Hot Pick 1203 stamps. and Ranger Archival Inks

Dan's favourite word is "home", and he's celebrated that by decorating this house blank.  It was covered with papers from the Destinations and Lost and Found card stacks and decorated with fragments and a word key.  Finally Dan added the word "home" to the roof of his house, colouring the grungeboard letters with Distress markers and stamping with the Road Trip stamp set.
Terry's favourite word  is "LIFE". She used the Papillon set from The Tim Holtz as a backgroundfor her tri-fold card. Everything was stamped using Vintage Photo and Aged Mahogany and worked on with crackle accents and Distress crackle paint. The clock is from 7 Gypsies and on top she chose Game Spinners  and Sprocket Gears
Ellen has been sketching this week, with flowers as her inspiration, so her favorite word is "bloom". She used a PITT pen for the sketching, and Faber-Castell gelatos with a water brush for the coloring and shading.  Bloom was stamped with Hero Arts lower case alphabet set.
London is my favourite word right now ... what with the Queen's jubilee and the Olympics ... what's not to like! I used my Artistic Outpost stamps with Ranger Vermillion Archival; Worn Lipstick Distress Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Ink for a more delicate twist on the usual red, white and blue ... with a bit of Tim Holtz die cutting for that personal touch!
