Simon Says Stamp & Show – Red Letter Day

SSSS-RedLetterDayThere's a cool theme at Simon Says Stamp and Show this week – it's a Red Letter Day.  A red letter day is a day of great personal significance. I chose my wedding day (that sure was life changing!)

I started with white corrugated cardboard, cut it with my Sizzix tag die, and spritzed with Cranberry and Lettuce Color Washes by Ranger.  I love the rich colors in these sprays.

I used the Cranberry on some grungeboard hearts (one stamped and one embossed) and flourishes, as well as on two of Tim's wooden number circles.

The spray made the numbers unreadable so I painted the actual numbers themselves with a very fine brush.  I added some tulle, a metal keyhole, and some green embroidery floss.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  Hope you're having a wonderful week.
