Layer it up card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Layer it up".

Layer it up can be interpreted in various ways, such as building layers with materials, or even mediums. I made a mix of the two for my card. I started to build up layers with different mediums, such as low Opal Magic Rose Gold and then the Honeycomb stencil with Transparent Texture Paste. When that was dry I've added layers with Distress Ink, and then Infusions Sunset Beach and Golden Sands.


When everything was dry, I started to make even more layers such as adding Crayon Black Soot Distress to the edges. Then it was time for the first layer of material, and no surprises here, it was of course adding some washi tape. After some stamping layers and splashes of Dylusions, I continued to build up with Wildflowers, jute twine, a frame and Droplets.
