Hello Monday my friends! Come celebrate our ninth birthday at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge with us! We are all about HAPPY BIRTHDAY this week with our challenge, and are showcasing our wonderful Simon Says Stamp products. We hope you will too!
We have the wonderfully talented Alison Bomber back with us this month as our guest artist! You are in for a treat, so be sure to check back each Monday in August to see her makes. Welcome again, Alison!
Happy 9th birthday, it's time to celebrate, and I've made a special card for the party. I'm using stamps from the new Believe in You release and the August Card Kit.
I wanted to see what would happen if I layered two stencils and added color, so I lined up these two Simon stencils and added Distress Oxide inks.
I think it looks kind of cool!
I decided to back in and blend some Rusty Hinge over the card.
I stamped the panda and balloons using the Stamp Platform, one of my favorite tools. Then, I used a water brush and the distress inks to color in my images.
I also did this inside the card.
a special wish inside the card...
Happy birthday Monday Challenge!!
