Hey everyone! Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Have a Heart challenge last week and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is One Layer! For this challenge you may add die cut pieces and embellishments but the front of the card should look like one layer. Remember you can enter up to 5 times! 🙂 We are showcasing Paper Smooches Products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.
I pulled out one of my fave snowman stamp sets again. Cool Dudes by Paper Smooches. You can see another card I created recently with the Cool Dudes stamp set here.
For this card I started by tracing a heart with the Molotow Masking pen on Distress Watercolor Cardstock. I then filled in the whole heart with the masking fluid. Once the masking fluid dried I spritzed the cardstock with water. Starting with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink Sprays I spritzed the background. I then used Mermaid Lagoon to fill it in a bit. I spritzed it with water again to help blend the colors. I then heat set the background.
Note: I started peeling the masking fluid with dirty fingers and some ink still on the masking fluid. OOPS! so I stopped, cleaned my hands (shocker) and cleaned off the heart really well with a baby wipe. You will see some marks in the background of my snowman scene but I was ok with this- thought it added to the watercolor look
I had fun watercoloring the little snowman and added a little Cracked Pistachio distress ink around him as well. I used Simon Says Stamp Hot Lips Dye Ink Pad for the sentiment (this is my favorite warm red/pink) and for the second generation background stamping. There’s a little sparkle throughout the card as well where I used a quickie glue pen and ultra fine crystal glitter.
Ok- so now it’s time for YOU to enter the challenge. Remember, Have a Heart! is the theme so have fun! Just by playing along and linking up your project to the SSS Wednesday Challenge post you can qualify to enter a $50 shopping voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store.
There will be ONE lucky winner that will be chosen at random, it could be you!
I really hope to see some of my blog readers join in on all the fun and play along with the challenge. I can’t wait to stop by some of your blogs and take a peek at what you have made. Have a wicked fun time creating!
