Seriously, You Rock!!

Hello everyone!  I’m here today playing along with Simon Says Stamp Flickr group!  This is the second time, I’m playing along.  Flickr is new to me, so it takes me some time to remember my password, then to upload and figure out how to get my photos in the groups feed.  I’m will get this down pack very soon!!

In any case, the challenge runs for two week and this week’s challenge #7 is all about stencils. I love working with stencils!  They are so easy and versatile to use.

Take a look at my card:

Seriously You Rock

What do you think? I wanted my background to have an ombre effect.  Did I achieve that?

I also wanted some of the distress inks to move around the card so I sprayed a little bit of water over the card front but I was unable to achieve the effect I was looking for.  I didn’t use watercolor paper so the water just warped my paper.  You can see that in the orange section of my card.

Here’s how I created this card:

1. I cut my card base to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50) out of Neenah Solar White cardstock.

2. I used Simon Says Stamp Flower Pattern Stencil and Ranger Distress Mustard Seek and Spiced Marmalade.

3. I sprinkled some water over the front of the card to get some of the ink to move but the water just created a warped look on the card.  I should have used watercolor paper.

4. I die cut Lil’ inker design Seriously die twice out of Simon Says Stamp Black cardstock.

5. I adhered the two die cuts using Tombow Multipurpose Glue for added dimension.

6. I used Lil’ inker design Seriously Awesome stamp set to stamp my sentiment under the die cut and the small heart.

7. I added Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and 6mm Clear Sparkling Clear Sequin.

That’s my card for today!!  What do you think?  Let me know below in the comment section.
