Simon says its all about Wendy....

So Wednesday was winners day over on Simon says and what winners they were....... You can go and see for yourself , the first one is Luthien, the next is Lynn and the final one was Donna, after seeing what these ladies made I'm not sure if I will ever be that good.
 The theme this week was chosen by Linda and is Wendy Vecchi studio 490 style. Well as I don't own a single thing of Wendy's I was a bit stumped, but as I carried on reading I realised it was about her style not her products so I went over to her blog and had a look. I have looked at her blog from time to time but I was always a little scared of how she did things but I found a nice little tag she had done and thought I would give it a try. You can see her tag here. Now I haven't been doing this altering thing for long (scrapbooker at heart) so I don't have what I could call my own style yet, I just try things out that I have seen and see what happens. So trying to follow someone else's style is a bit hit or miss you either get it or you miss by a mile I think, but I gave it a go and I don't think I missed by much!


What do you think?

I used a normal tag and stamped with a watermark ink pad, added clear embossing powder, then covered the whole thing with tattered rose ink. I then cut it with one of Tims on the edge dies, the end I cut again so I got two lines of holes, which I knotted together with some old  ribbon. The centre was made with a small house from the collection elements range, the paper it is covered with is also a scrap from them. The red centre is just the middle from a chipboard frame that I covered with fired earth ink. Then to finish it off I used a ticket I had and stamped it with Wendy's trend mark saying Make Art, only using the only stamps I had it looks like Make Ant!

Thanks for reading,
 Cath
