Kind of amazing tag

Monday means it's time for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge blog.
And guess what.
I get to be a guest designer with them all month long!

This week's challenge is "Something New" and we're using a Simon Exclusive product.

I used the new-to-me Simon stamp set Kind Flowers to make this tag. After I stamped it, I colored it in with a waterbrush and Distress Crayons in a new color scheme for me. I almost always use warm colors so I made myself use the cool colors blue, green, and purple. I inked up the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink and sprinkled water on the tag. I finised it up some blue crinkled ribbon.

Come play along in the "Something New" challenge for your chance to win a $50 voucher to spend at

How fabulous to be able to see your work again! I love what you did with this tag. This is a great stamp set and I really like the way you gave it a vintage feel. The color palette is refreshing and rustic all at once and it turned out beautifully! Can't wait to see what else you've got up your sleeve for your challenges!
