Simon Says: Resist It










Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week we are challenging you to create something using a resist technique.

Resist It

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
It is Amber's last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your fabulous projects that you have shared with us over the past few weeks, It has been a great pleasure to have you along with us again !

My nephew has just bought his first home in Holland, quite an achievement, so I made thus card for him :-) Congratulations Niels!! He is a civil engineer so I thought something with a road on it would be appropriate ;-)

I made a card using a Tim Holtz Halftones Cling Stamp and White Embossing Powder to make a heat embossed resist background.



 I then blended Distress Oxide Inks for the sky and used Tim Holtz Cityscape Suburbia and Cityscape Commute to finish the scene.


and I used the excess ink left on the blending tools to make the inside. 




Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

This made me want to move into a new house just so someone would send me a gorgeous card like this! I love how you created a whole entire neighborhood scene here that is both exciting and soothing at the same time. And of course, the inside of your card is every bit as stunning as the outside!

Zoey Emanuela Scarpelli said...

Love this card!! The color combo you choose is so bright and happy! I also absolutely love the fact you always decor your inside of the card!! I never think about it and it always add that "something else more" to the entire project!
hugs x Zoey
