TIO Challenge and Simon Says Stamp and Show distressing

 We continue with our FABULOUS recipe challenges again this week, where it is Silvie's turn to tease and inspire us... her choice is "Don't Fear", with the ingredients, a scary image, a crowd of purple and texture - how zany and amazing is that!!??  I stamped on shiny cardstock for maximum depth of colour and texture from my clear ep.
 That yummy texture shows up here in the light from my window, and you can see that the two crows are raised off the tag.
 WOOO, I am LOVING this huge image.!! With my old blog layout, I did not have room for this, but now I can, I shall!!!! So this is the whole tag. My scary image is the crows, 'cos I think they are evil-looking, and how shocking that one should have the key to the door in his beak... what if he flies away with it???
And, of course, the crowd of purple is all done with the range of yummy distress inks we have now, from the new lilac to the new raspberry, through concorde and berries... ooo they are so scrumptious!!! The door and the key are from a set by Darkroom Door; the birds are from a set by Invoke Art; the moon came from a set by the Stampman, many moons ago (get it????!!! - ouch, no need to kick me SO hard!!) and the tree is a Judikins one from Stamp Addicts.

Well off to add it all to the challenge blog, where most of my team have already posted their fabulous inspirational pieces... do pop over and have a look, and do visit their blogs too, as they are all immensely talented!! Thanks for coming to look and for leaving your uplifting and supportive comments, they really do help me when I am feeling low, after yet another set of wet clothes for mum!!
Love and Light

Very very cool tag! I love the light purples fading into the deep purple and then to black. Very mysterious! Love your stamped images of the trees, moon and doorway. The crows definitely are evil looking, as they guard the locked door. I love your sentiment for this piece. Very appropriate! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

Sue said...

This is fabulous, you have some amazing stamps, and I'm loving the purples, but how can you say that birds are evil - it is their little beedy eyes or the sharp pointy beaks lol.
