Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Ray Of Sunshine Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
We are still going through all of the entries into the DT Call and we hope to be back with an announcement in the very near future!
This week the challenge is,
SPRITZ AND SPRAY
There are so many sprays available from lots of different manufacturers, but you can also make your own and tailor make the colors to suit your project! We will be looking forward to seeing what you choose to use!

Andrea was spritzing up a storm to make this colorful trio of tags.
When it comes to bold saturated color, I love to combine ink sprays with Distress Ink, then drip water here and there to create even more splotches of color. Dylusions ink sprays, such as Tangerine Dream, are so vibrant. I also adore the empowering words that are part of Dina Wakley’s All the Gals stamp set.
Anna-Karin likes to use light colours of mist to create backgrounds.
Mists go perfectly together with stencils, and here I used Dylusions stencils as a stamp together with Distress Spray Stains to create a soft watercolour background for my layout. Colouring something with mist is super fast and some of the die cut embellishments were also misted, such as the Butterfly Duo by Tim Holtz and the pretty Simon Says Stamp Bird of Roses.
Barbara loves the bright colors! She enjoyed to create a colorful rainbow with Distress Sprays!
I absolutely love this challenge! Sprays are some of my favourite products and I adore to work with them! I had fun coloring a rainbow with Distress Sprays to surround the globe and to play with stencils and stamps, creating a contrast with gray color to the external of my canvas. I believe in the magic of colors!
Cheiron always loves to create distress stain tags for her art journal.
This week I played around with a few of my favorite colors of Distress Spray Stains to create some tags for my art journal. I used 3 of my favorite colors Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Blueprint Sketch to create my background. I stamped the sentiment using Dina Wakley’s Scribbly Alphabet and the background with shapes from the Primitive Icons and Woodcuts sets.
Emma is feeling the love for sprays and mists this week.
I love how you can create such different effects using sprays and mists and inspired by a piece of Victorian tapestry, I created a Valentine’s card using sprays and the Distress Marker Spritzer to create three layered pieces and backgrounds on this one project. I began by spritzing Candied Apple Distress Spray Stain through the Flourish Layering Stencil onto a piece of burlap before mounting it onto a background of card, covered with torn Tissue Wrap and spritzed with Distress Spray Stains including the beautiful Antiqued Bronze. I completed the card with a die cut heart.
Maura is playing with sprays and papers to make Valentines for her sweeties.
This week, I am testing out some different papers to see how the sprays react on my four cards. I love using my Simon Says Stamp Sketch Heart die which works as a stencil and an embellishment. I played with three different brands of spray, wondering how well they would work together, which was great by the way. Prima Color Bloom in Iris, Dylusions Funky Fuchsia, and Tim Holtz Abandoned Coral Distress Spray gave me a fun color mix.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag this week.
Distress Spray Stain is one of my favorite coloring product and was used on most of my mixed media project. On the background of this tag, I sprayed Distress Spray Stain over Tim Holrz Layering Stencil, and embossed the pattern with ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder. Some motivational sentiments were added using Tim Holtz Small Talk Stickers.
Sandra got her hands very inky making this card
I’m in love with the Wooden Plank background stamp. So I used it for this card as a starting point for my background. Of course I needed to get some sprays out, and grabbed Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Spray Stains along with the ZigZag stencil.
So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
