It's the start of a brand new week here on my blog and that means it's the start of a brand new challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and this week there is just one rule ~ we want you to use any one Simon Says Stamp brand stamp, stencil, ink pad, cardstock, die or kit on your project! You can also feature other things ~ just be sure to let us know what Simon brand exclusive product you used in your creation this week!
I chose to use a selection of SSS products to create my card and hope you enjoy the creative process behind it!
Next, I wanted to add some more to my background and applied a combination of blues and greens directly onto my SSS Ring Cluster stencil, misted the stencil with water and then stamp the stencil directly onto the background and press down. I removed the stencil to leave me with this gorgeous reverse print.
I stamped the Exercise Girl image onto a further piece of watercolour card using black Archival Ink and then coloured her using a water brush and Distress Marker Pens that I scribbled onto my craft sheet. I then used the co-ordinating die to die cut the image and set her to one side to work on the next stage.
I really hope you've enjoyed this tutorial and you've been inspired by some of the techniques I've used to create my background. If you need any further inspiration for this challenge, then you need look no further than our blog to see all the wonderful creations from all the very talented Design Team members and every week, one lucky random participant has the chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp. Good luck....
Thank you so much for all your visits today and hope you all have a great week ahead
