Simon Says Use Plaid


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

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

This week the challenge is

Use Plaid

This week we are showcasing Lawn Fawn 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 love plaid pattern and more so the rainbow plaid pattern. I used the rainbow plaid pattern paper from Perfectly Plaid Paper Pad from Lawn Fawn along with Simon Says Stamp Summer Flowers stamp set to make my card for the challenge.

I used the masking technique to stamp couple of images from the Summer Flowers stamp set on the right edge of white cardstock panel. I placed the panel next to the rainbow diagonal plaid pattern paper for guidance and to pick the colours to colour the image. I am not going for a realistic colouring of the flowers and leaves. This is more stylised version. The images are coloured using copic markers in the rainbow fashion. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Thoughtful Messages stamp set stamped on the panel directly. I trimmed the panel about 3/4th of an inch from the left side.

On the card front, I adhered a strip of the rainbow pattern paper from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid patter paper pad. I die cut the border in black using one of the border die from Pretty Pink Posh’s Stitched Border 1 die set. I adhered this border to the coloured and stamped panel. This panel is now adhered on the card using foam adhesives. Black sequins ties in the black border and black image outlines. Here are some closeups of the card.

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
