Simon Says Stamp and Show

It's Monday and already the second week of the new Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. Here is my entry for this week's challenge which is The Wendy Vecchi ; Studio 490 Style!

Wendy Vecchi style courtesy of Tim Holtz!!!

I only have one set of Wendy Vecchi stamps which are very useful words so I used that stamped onto paper from Tim's retro grunge book which was attached behind a hole cut in Grungeboard with my Sizzix Baroque die. The Grungeboard itself is inked with Vintage Photo.
I cut Tim's Sizzix flowers which are inked with Stormy Sky then run through the Big Shot through Tim's texture fade dots (as I don't have the dot stamp Wendy uses) and inked over with Chipped Sapphire to accentuate the dots. The smallest layer and the pointy layer are misted with gold Perfect Pearls as are the leaves cut from another Sizzix die. Behind the flower is a Tim stamp from Artful artifacts - a flourish stamp that I just love and is my new favourite.
On the other side the hearts are cut from grungepaper - one is coloured with Distress ink and over stamped in Brown Stazon with the alphabet from Artful Artifacts and the other has a page from an old Spanish book glued on, coloured with Distress inks and stamped with the numbers from another of Tim's stamp sets. The 45 is accented with an embellishment from Tim.
Around the edge and the "hole" is a dotted line drawn with a fineliner pen. Finishing touch is a small heart button from my stash.

This now hangs next to last week's submission and I am going to put a poster on the wall explaining just what these pieces are for and with a link to SSS.

I have added two photographs of it because I couldn't decide which looked better - the darker one which is more the true colours but where you can't see the details or the paler one where you can.
Bye for now
