simon says stamp/stencil it - so very blessed

Be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Store!


It is time for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge and we are challenging you to stenciling. The team is using stencils from stencil girl, check them out! Don't forget every week at Simon Says Stamp we give away a $50 voucher...woohoo...definitely worth playing for! I can't wait to see what you create!


I luv using stencils, I usually always reach for embossing paste, but I decided to use gesso instead and then misted it with tim holtz stain, I really like the soft blue color. I then stamped the sentiment over top of the stenciled flower. Added a few pretty pink posh clear sequins and twine for my completed card.

mojo monday/mojo446 - deepest sympathy


I was inspired by this weeks photo from inspired by the little things, the photo inspired me to create a sympathy card, there is something about the darker rippling circle of water and the butterflies fluttering around. I have used the Verve plain jane sympathy sentiment, my favorite...I luv the size. I have watercolored the background, added glossy accents to the butterflies and a few enamel dots. Some black ink splatter in the open spaces pull it all together....sometimes I just need to fill in those open spaces....lol. Hope you have a fabulous week!

I used the new simon says stamp release my favorite, the stamp set is cuddly critters. I cannot wait to see what you so with this weeks colors, be sure to check out the design teams blogs for more inspiration.
