Simon Says: Add Some Red

Hello Monday my friends! I hope you've had a great week, stayed warm and cozy and found some time to craft. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge we are highlighting Inky Antic products, and I've chosen my team mate, Andrea Ockey Parr's fabulous stamps for my project. Our theme is ADD SOME RED

We have a special guest designer joining us this month, Lucyna Marynowska at u Luli and I know you will be inspired by her beautiful work. Welcome Lucyna!

I chose three sets of Andrea's stamps and combined them in my CAS (clean and simple) Valentine card.

Live Colorfully

I added touches of red to my black and white scheme with ink and watercolor. I edged the words and color wheel with ink, stamped red onto the wheel, and used watercolor for the hat and 14. I decided to add a touch of bling with the red sequins.

My final touch of red was to tie on some red and white twine to the card. My usual mode is to layer, layer, layer and add lots of color, so this was a challenge to me to keep it simple. I couldn't decide if I liked it as I was working on it, but when it all came together, I do. 

If you have Inky Antic products, we would love to see you use them in this challenge, and remember to add some red! I hope you will join us this week, and remember one lucky participant is randomly chosen for a $50 voucher from our generous friends at Simon Says Stamp! 


A great place to shop!!!
