It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "We've got your number".
This card I've made for my mother's 70th birthday. I started to build up a background with Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide. What a cool effect these Oxides give. I always have to hold myself in because you can make as many layers as you like. I haven't count the layers, but I'm thinking about 7 or maybe 8...
I've added some depth and interest with different Distress Oxide inks and number stamps. Oxides work better for stamping ink then Distress Ink. And what the best part is that you can stamp light colors on dark backgrounds.
As a little girl I picked wildflowers for my mother's birthday. So I used these Wildflowers (thanks Marzena!) and colored with Metallique Waxes Rose Gold, Old Silver and Bronze Age. On an even surface, it's very easy to apply an even layer so it appears that the paper original has that color. Often the waxes are used for highlights, so I'm pleased that I can use it for coloring even surfaces as well.
Unfortunately all the tickets for the CREATE Event that Simon Says Stamp hosts are sold out. But know that you can visit the pop up store that is build for that event is open to the public, so if you're in Columbus on April 28th or 29th, come over and pop in!
