Traveling Rogues

Rogue Redhead Designs challenge "Distressed Greens" was just what the doctor ordered for Linda's newest CC2 challenge, page 42, "Flick and Spritz."  Now of course this is a lesson out of Tim's book, so we can't share the details!  Simon Says Stamp and Show are also the sponsors of week #13 and are offering a fabulous $25.00 prize and speaking of, we will be traveling to Simon Says Stamp and Show "No Rules."  I love no rules!
Even though you don't have to use RRD stamps to participate, I just so happen to have a lovely plate and have wanted to use these little sweeties for some time.  A $15.00 store voucher is offered and by luck, there is a store sale.  I stamped the image with Stazon Brown and colored with Distress Inks using cotton swabs.  I did not want any color on the skin or book.  I punched little holes where the slide chain, so I could add some decorative silver sewing thread for the little swing!  The sandy glitter was actually my DH's idea and at the time, I was not keen on it.  Then gave it a second thought!  Yes, I will have to show it to him!  The metal pieces where covered with green acrylic paint and rubbed off, so the green would cover the recessed areas. 
This was fun and just in time for the CC2C #13!  I do keep forgetting that it starts on Friday!!!  An old brain is hard thing to retrain!  Ha!  Hope you all are having a great week and many thanks for stopping by! 

Distress Inks:  Forrest Moss, Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo
