Red White Blue - Simon Monday Challenge


 

Hi there! 
Since it's 4th of July, the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to use

RED WHITE and/or BLUE

Red/White/Blue Color Challenge

 As always there is a $50 voucher to win and spend 
at Simon Says Stamp Store! Don't wait and join us ASAP.


I have to admit these are not my colors at all. 
I used them together only once in my life and this is my second try. 

I covered the tag with White Gesso randomly and unevenly.
After that I applied the gesso through the Mini Tiny Circles stencil. 
I wet the surface, put Red and Blue Ecoline letting it spread upright over the tag. When the colors seem to be too strong I apply my favorite smoothing Dylusions Paint White Linen. I love the effect it gives  when I feel I have exaggerated with colors. When the paint was still wet I sprinkled Black Embossing Powder randomly and melted it with a heat tool. I used Black Marble Dylusions Paint and the White Linen as well to make the ink splats. As a background element I chose the Ring Frame (thanks Sandra!) As a focal point I used the Indigo Blu Dinkie Poppy stamped softly with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and watercolored with the same color. After that to get the result even more soft, I applied White Linen Dylusions Paint over the flower as well. Finally I placed the Big Chat Stickers and embellished the flower with Clustered Leaves (thanks Sandra!) and some red sequins
