Finally, the weather is getting as you would expect being Spring here in the Netherlands, and the theme of Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is just perfect to celebrate it: Botanical Bliss. DT member Suzanne is in the mood for flowers and other botanical beauty! Hope you are too and will join in!
For this challenge, I really went out of my comfort zone. I don't really use pastel colors often and I rarely make layouts and certainly not with a photo of myself. All the more fun to try it and go for it.
First, I applied a layer of gesso on the pages. Then I the Gelatos came into play to create a background together with water and a baby wipe. For more dimension I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Spray and a stencil. Love the shimmer that those sprays give!
With Embossing Paste and the exclusive Simon Says Stamp Leaves Stencil I added the leaves. After the paste was completely dry I colored them in with Gelatos that I mixed with water and applied it with a brush. To make the coloring easier, I laid the stencil back before I started coloring.
To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
