Beautiful Moments

It's my last post for the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge.
It's been both so much fun and a little intimidating to create alongside those talented ladies!
I hadn't crafted in a long time so this was a great way to jump back in.

This week's challenge is Resist It.
I ended up making another tag. 

I used Remnant Rubs and Distress Micro Glaze as my resist mediums.

I first applied the rubons to the tag, then sprayed Distress Spray Stains in Cracked Pistachio and Tea Dye. The rubons resist the ink and I just blotted off the ink the beaded on top as I dried it. I like the bits of manila that peek through. I applied Black Soot distress ink through Donna Downey's Script stencil. Then I applied the Micro Glaze through the Tim Holtz Plus tag. I sprayed Abandoned Coral Distress Spray Stain and you can see where the Micro Glaze resisted it.

I added a dancer from Tim Holtz's Paper Dolls and the sentiment and finished it off with a trio of ribbon and twine. Oh, and edged it with Vintage Photo and Black Soot.

Thanks for stopping by my blog this week. As always, Simon Says Stamp has a $50 gift card up for grabs for a random participant in this challenge so go enter!

Stunning work and so many clever ideas. I haven't thought about rubons as a resist material and it obviously is resistant. Love the way you udes the micro glaze as a reist technique too. I need to try that one someday. Thank you for sharing such a great techniques! So cool to have you with us this month! Hugs, Macarena.
