Simon Says Add a Sentiment!

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

Thank you for joining us for the For A Child Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

We also have a special challenge for children between the ages of 2 and 16! CLICK HERE or on the logo to go directly to the challenge page


This week the challenge is

Add A Sentiment

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

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I have used Impression Obsession’s Hello stamp set and die on my card.

For the background, I have used Simon Says Stamp Star Medallion stencil. I sponged Distress Oxide inks in rainbow colours on the stencil. The colours I used are Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean, Twisted Citron, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Candied Apple. Then I applied Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer paste. This paste showed the colours but gave the shimmer and texture to the background. I really love the background.

With the background, adding the Hello die in black gave a great contrast. I also simply stamped the secondary sentiment on strips of white cardstock and adhered above and below the main sentiment. The focus is on the sentiment with a dramatic and colourful background.

So now it’s YOUR turn!
