Simon Says Make it Masculine!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Make It Masculine

This week we are showcasing Tim Holtz Products. You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As luck would have it the Monday Challenge also has the same theme so you could join in with both!

 As always, Simon has a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store ready for one lucky winner!

I used Tim Holtz’s Distress Oxide inks along with Simon Says Stamp stamp set and dies to make my card for the challenge.

The panel is Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper. I sponged Faded Jeans and Broken China distress oxide inks on the centre of the panel fading to the edges. I added some clean clear water spatters to add interest. Once dry, I die cut the panel using the Postage Edge die from Simon Says Stamp.

For the focal point, I used Simon Says Stamp Mom and Dad Icons and coordinating dies. Again I used distress oxide inks Fossilised Amber and Spiced Marmalade on distress watercolor paper. Then stamped the “D” on the paper with black ink and cut the image out using the coordinating die. I also stamped the camera image from the stamp set on watercolor paper, coloured using Zig clean brush marker pen and die cut using the coordinating die. I adhered them on the middle of the postage stamp edge panel using foam adhesives.

The secondary sentiment is white heat embossed on black strip of card stock and adhered below the focal die cuts. The panel is adhered on Fog card base and a few glossy accents finish the card.

EDITED: I forgot to tell you. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog also has the same theme. Enter your card for both the challenges. Yay!

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
