A new Simon Says Stamp Challenge Monday is always a nice start of the week. This week we have another fun challenge for you: Big Stamp! Whether it's a big background stamp, a large pattern or just a big stamp in general. As long it's a big stamp you're good to go!
When I saw this beautiful stamp from Prima, I wanted it right away. It's so cute and cheerful! Perfect for the Big Stamp Challenge. As you know, I absolutely love my Gelatos and I didn't played with them for a little while. My favorite Gelatos technique is the drippage effect. So I covered the pages with Gesso. Then picked out the colors picked that I wanted to use.
It's so easy, but so cool how you can remove the Gelatos with stencils and with a baby wipe. Or even can apply some color with a "dirty" colored wipe.
The title Summer's in Bloom is a cool Reef song, I've listen to it a lot in my teens. Even went to a couple of their concerts back in the day. The letters SUMMER are stamped with the exclusive Simon Says Stamp big Sketched Alphabet stamps.
I've experimented a bit with black colored Gesso. It's a lot thinner than modeling or embossing paste. But I find the effect quite nice, although I do like the look of the paste more.
The Prima Joy Bloom stamp needed to be the focal point and have therefore only colored a few elements. I've done this with Gelatos, Distress Markers and Water Brush.
