Simon Says: Flower Power














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

Flower Power
simply add a flower or 2 to your project!

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



Please pop by and see what our lovely guest Paula and the DT have made, blooming beautiful creations!

For the background I used Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks, smooshing them onto a craft mat, spritzing lightly with water and dipping the watercolor paper into the puddle. drying with a heat tool in between colours. 


I then splattered with various Ink Sprays  and added interest and texture using Stitches and Burlap Layering Stencils and White Embossing Paste. 

While the background was drying I stamped a Darkroom Door Fresh Buds Cling Stamp. using Jet Black Stazon Ink and coloured with yummy Zig Pens. 


For the layering panel I blended Broken China Oxide Ink onto watercolor paper, spritzed with water and when it was dry I used a 


I added a couple of strips of washi tape and wrapped around some twine. I used the 'hello' sentiment from a Tim Holtz Springtime Side Order 


artsy angle ;-)

That splatter background is divine! What a beautiful card - love it :)

The background is so impressive. I love stencils, but often I can't visualize what to do with them. And then I see a card like this and I get it. Really lovely card. Thank you for the inspiration.

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

This is very cool and I adore the way you built up the texturing in the background. This has a unique grungy-flowery type of vibe that I really like a lot. I thought it was genius of you to do stenciling on top of stenciling!

Kath Stewart said...
