~* {heart} YOU (Simon Says Stamp and Show Your Numbers!)

Hi Everyone!

Hope you're having a wonderful week so far! I made another little canvas for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog - Show Your Numbers Challenge.
This little 5"x5" canvas is packed with numbers, even the sides are wrapped with Tim Holtz tissue tape, which has numbers :). I scrunched some of the tape and put it randomly in areas (can you find Waldo, I mean the hidden tissue tape?).
I did some experimenting on this puppy. I've seen the gel mediums with glass beads in them, but I wanted to try to make my own. I used the multi-medium and glass beads and it came out cool. Love the texture. I did a lot of distressing with inks and starburst stains. I used paints, crackle accents, Tim Holtz type charms, Prima roses & pearls, lace...oh yes, and I used more of the Tim Holtz Lost and Found bits and pieces.

Hope you like it! I had so much fun playing! Have a wonderful Wednesday (wow, this week is zooming by)!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!

Gorgeous Steph! I think I spotted some of tissue tape! ;)
Love the mix of items and especially the heart with the wings, so cool!

Audrey Pettit said...

How adorable, Steph! I definitely tried to play Where's Waldo as best as I could with the tissue tape. Scrolled through the photos several times to be sure I caught it all. ;)
Love the mixed media here. Love the bits of microbeads, too. Didn't see to much of it, but I think I found it.
Great project, my friend!
And you know....if you can't find a good cause out there in HI, you could organize one. :)
