Simon Says Vintage Challenge!!!

This week and going forward I'll be doing things a little bit differently...each week, I'll show a teaser of 3 different designers and for the full effect you'll just have to check out the Challenge blog!

This week, the 3 designers who will be showcased are: Linda Elbourne, Dan, and Ellen Vargo!  The theme for this week's Challenge is Anything Goes! Here are their creations:

 Shadowboxes are so fun!  I like to play eye-spy with them and Tim Holtz's Configurations are the perfect starting point! : )  In this one, I see lots of Idea-ology, including: Foundations, Game Pieces, Birdcage, Corners, Grungeblocks, Fractured Dolls, Ornate Plates, Corked Vials, Marketplace Tissue Tape, and a Bottle Cap.  She also used Wendy Vecchi's Make Mine Mini Art and Tim Holtz's Crowded Attic Paper Stash.

 What a neat piece this is!!  I love the different tiles! Dan used Wendy Vecchi's Residential Art Stamp Set, Distress Stains, Distress Inks, and Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paints!  He also used the Ultimate Grunge stamp set, Retro Grunge Paper Stash by Tim Holtz.
Ellen used some lovely bright colors on this piece!  I am in love and want to make one for my office (which, by the way, is neon green! hehe).  We just got in some Dyan Reaveley Stencils and Mists! One of the Dyan Reaveley stamp sets she used on this piece is Bits & Bats.  She also used 12 x 12 White Sticky Back Canvas,  and Multi Medium Matte.
