I am back with a Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge card! This week’s challenge is Make It Sparkle – Dig out your ultrafine glitters, bling, stickles, glitter paper, sparkly ribbon etc! The design team is sharing creations using stamps from Neat and Tangled and Janes Doodles. I didn’t have any stamps from those companies that Simon Says Stamp is carrying currently, so I went ahead and played with my August Simon Says Stamp Card Kit.
I just adore the Ice Cream Dream stamp set that came in the kit, it is so flippin’ cute!! I decided to use my Distress Markers (specific colors listed below) and color directly on the stamp and stamped the ice creams on Distress Watercolor paper. I then used a waterbrush to blend the color out. If I wanted it to be shaded anywhere I touched my waterbrush directly to the distress marker (on the brush tip side) and picked more of the color up, to paint onto my ice creams. Once I had my 5 cones colored and fussy cut out I was struggling with what to do next.
I really liked the “I scream you scream we all scream for ice cream” sentiment so I decided to create my own background by repetitively stamping that in creamy brown chalk ink. The sentiment was in a block shape, so it made it easy to line up, but you could use a stamp positioner if you wanted.
I added the sparkle to the cones and hearts by using glossy accents and Distress Stickles Dry Glitter in Rock Candy. I diecut out a scalloped circle from the scalloped circle stackable dies from Lawn Fawn, and then stamped “all you need is ice cream” in vintage sepia Versafine ink.
What do you think? Ready for some dessert?! 🙂
