I am back with a Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge card! This week’s challenge is Anything Goes – These are always fun because you can just create whatever your little heart desires! The design team is featuring supplies from Memory Box this week. After going through my stash from them I realized I have a lot of their stencils and dies, but none of their stamps! I used the Memory Box Texture Brilliant Designer Stencil and Simon Says Stamp Bring on the Sunshine Stamp Set.
I held the Texture Brilliant stencil in place over a sheet of Distress Watercolor paper with painters tape. Using Distress Ink in Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw and the mini ink blending tool to blend a gradient through the stencil.
On another piece of Distress Watercolor paper I prepped the paper with the EK Success Powder tool, and then white embossed the “You are my sunshine…” sentiment from the Bring on the Sunshine Stamp Set. I then inked over it in Weathered Wood Distress Ink, the white embossing powder acts as a resist.
I tore a bit of the bottom off for added texture. I also used two layers of foam tape behind the sentiment to have it pop off the card even higher.
Ok- so now it’s time for YOU to enter the challenge.
Just by playing along (creating anything with any theme) 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.
