Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Whatever the Weather Tag using Dina Wakley's Side Eye Stamp Set

 "Whatever the weather" is our theme this week at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  Living in a desert state that has seen droughts, I decided to give a nod to rain.  And why not bring a fantastic Les Miserables song to mind while I was at it?

I started with a tag that I cut out of Kraft Heavystock.  I glued some scraps of patterned paper to in, namely Spellbinders Florals, Dina Wakley's Ledger Paper 1, and Tim Holtz's Abandoned.

Next I stamped on the Dina Wakley image from the Side Eye stamp set and colored the face in with paint.  I added some blue paint around the edges to give the look of rain.

Next I used paint and Distress Crayons to add some shading and color to the face.  I made some highlights with a white Posca paint pen.  I also added more blue around the edges of the tag.

Next I brightened up the flowers with more paint.  I added some raindrops using Tim Holtz's Mixed Media Marks 2 stamp set.  I made the blue paint streak down a bit to try to mimic rain a bit more.

I typed out the sentiment on a typewriter and glued it to the bottom of the tag.  I also added some dots of white paint as a final touch and this tag was done!

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
