Simon Says: Typography



Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week we would like you to have a play with letters!

TYPOGRAPHY

The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

Please pop by to see what our fabulous guest  Lucyna and the DT have made! Brilliantly clever stuff! :-)



I inked up the background stamp with Fog Ink and samped directly onto the card base. I then used a piece of Watercolor Paper the same size as the card and tore a strip off the edge and inked with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink. I then placed a Dylusions Holes Stencil over the top and used Smoke Ink to add some text in the holes. 

I coloured the Lotus Flowers with Copic Markers and layered up the flowers to give a 3D effect and stitched along the edge to add more interest.


and I finished the inside and almost ruined it! I dropped the inked stamp after I had stamped the sentiment and left some smudgy marks. I think that because there are other bits of random inked text its not that noticable, what do you think? Is it usable? 




Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

That stamp is a favorite of mine--I love what you did with it!

The design here is superb. I really like the contrast of the grunge background and pretty flower which is perfectly coloured. The torn edge fits in so well with the grunge background and fab way to add text to the card. Oh and no you don’t notice the smudge! So good to see you at Ink

Lucyna Marynowska said...

Stunning piece, Lols! Love the amazing card and the way you created the bunch of flowers!
Lucyna xx

Redanne said...

Oh, don't you just hate it when that happens? I think it is perfectly usable, it is beautiful, I love the colours, the flowers are so lovely and the stitching, as always, looks wonderful! Hugs, Anne xx

Lindsey said...

Ooh, a fun theme! And I love your card! Looks perfectly fine to me... and if you're worried, just add a few more smudges, then it will totally look like they were meant to be there! :D

Greta said...

Doesn't look like a goof to me! Beautiful & artistic!

This is such a beautiful and refreshing-feeling card! I feel the hope of Spring in this, especially when it's FREEZING outside right now! I love the color palette and the sewing detail. Really pretty background, too!
