It's Monday and that means a new ! This week it's all about "Start afresh". It is 2017! Best wishes for this new year, may it be a year full of creativity! This year we also start with a fresh start at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Use something just out of the package, like a product that you've never used. We showcasing great products Cara Belle this week.
I started with Infusions of PaperArtsy. It's fresh out of the package and a new product for me and so I started experimenting with it. First, I applied a layer of Mod Podge that I'd diluted with water. I used three different colors of Infusions: A Bit Jaded, Golden Sands and Black Knight. When the Mod Podge has dried Infusions are permanent and don't react with water anymore. Without ruining my background I could apply a layer of Black Knight with water.
With the Mixed Media Strips stamp from Cara Belle and Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink (all new out of the packaging), I created more depth. The edges I distressed with Black Soot Distress Crayon. During this step something went wrong with my camera and the last part wasn't recorded. But fortunately I was almost done. I just added the Birthday die cut from Celebration Words (thanks Cathie) Label Letter stickers and the droplets. As for my video it's not a good start for this new year ...
