Simon Says Stamp & Show – One Color


It’s been a pleasure to hear from so many bloggers about my Compendium of Curiosities giveaway.  It will be fun to see who the winner is on Halloween!  If you missed it, check the post at the top of my blog…. there’s some serious Tim Holtz blog candy up for grabs!

Today I’m showing a tag for Simon Says Stamp & Show and also following the sketch at Mojo Monday.

I started by inking a few tags with scattered straw and brushed corduroy distress inks, then stamped them with script and patterned/textured stamps.

Used some Graphic 45 buttons, a metal tag, brads a few punches, and a cute mini clip from a company called Anticca.  The patterned paper that’s the main panel is  Dream Street.

The sketch is below.  Thanks for visiting, and have a great day!




Your comments are very much appreciated!


  1. Oh, Marjie, your one color piece is fab! I love how it just glows with warmth. Beautiful job with the sponging and that wonderful script stamping. Very cool clip/clothes pin thingy too! Always a pleasure to see an entry from you over at Simon Says Stamp and Show!~

  2. Hi Marjie. I love your monotone piece. It’s simply beautiful! I love all of the letters and text you incorporated and it doesn’t look monotonous at all! It’s really a well balanced piece with some interesting accents. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy
