I am back with a Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge card! This week’s challenge is Emboss It – create with embossing powder, embossing paste, embossing folders. Whatever your creative imagination comes up with!
I needed to create this card ahead of time because I am currently at a trade show teaching and demoing for Lawn Fawn. Since I have been having a lot of fun lately playing with my distress inks I thought I would keep it going! They are a supply that I have had f-o-r-e-v-e-r but I am having fun rediscovering them and playing. I decided to use the same colors I used in the last Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
I smooched the ink pad on my craft sheet and spritzed the ink with water, so that I had a pool of ink. I picked up that ink with a paint brush, making sure the brush was super wet. Then splattering the ink on a piece of Distress Ink Watercolor paper. I did one color at a time, heat setting in between each color. Then I stamped “hello” from the Winnie and Walter The Big Bold and Happy stamp set. Taking the Bubble Tim Holtz Layering stencil, I over-layed it on the right side of the card, taping it down with painters tape. I then spread translucent embossing paste through the stencil, while it was still wet I spooned some crystal ultra-fine glitter onto the areas that had the embossing paste. I let it dry overnight and it looked spectacular when I woke in the morning!
As a finishing touch I used some glossy accents and added some Simon Says Stamp Moonshine sequins.
Ok- so now it’s time for YOU to enter the challenge.
