Road Trip Birthday 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 "Road Trip".

This week I made a birthday card with the fabulous Barber Shoppe stamp set. I started with creating some texture. For that I used the Tiles stencil with Texture Paste. And to apply even more texture I used Mini Art Stones, which I pressed into the Paste while it was still wet.


After the Texture Paste was dry, I started to apply some color. I did this with Infusions and Mod Podge. The Mod Podge also ensures that the Mini Art Stones are sealed in and won't fall off. I added more color with Distress Oxide and Infusions. The car is made of Black Embossing Powder and I played around with a White Sharpie. It works on every surface, even over the Mini Art Stones.




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 Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.

Oh, WOW! I am super impressed with how you've used the white pen on this! I had to look twice at the bottom to see how you did it - lots of patience! The white highlights and doodles really make this card! hugs, Maura
