Specimen See Through card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "We Can See Clearly".



Not really a Father's Day card, but I made this one for that reason anyway. My father doesn't like dark colors, so I kept the card light. A while back I made a card with an acetate overlay and I really liked the effect, and it fits perfectly with this challenge. I started with the background and I used Distress Oxide Pumice Stone, Speckled Egg, Evergreen Bough and Ground Espresso to build up the colors. With Archival Ink Ground Espresso I stamped all over the card with the Ledger Script stamp.

 

The dark text of the Script Ledger stamp was a bit too dark and I mixed Texture Paste with Distress Paint Speckled Egg and used it with the Crate stencil. While the Texture Paste was drying I started with the acetate. I finally used my Specimen Stamp Set for that. I've had it for a while now, but couldn't find the right project for it. I reinked my stamp pad before stamping. That helps that you only have to stamp once and the stamp doesn't stick to the acetate. On the back of the acetate I colored the bug with Distress Paint Speckled Egg.

Beautiful Blooms card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

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


For this card I chose the yarrow from the Wildflowers die set. That is my favorite flower of all the flower stamps, stencils and dies I have by far. I wanted to use soft colors for this card. First I made a background with Typeset Collage Paper, old book paper and washi tape. I gave this with two coats of White Gesso and a coat of Clear Gesso.

 

After the Gesso dried, I used Distress Paint Speckled Egg and White Gesso the build up the main color. After the Speckled Egg, I applied Metallic Paint Rustic Brown, also with plenty of water. The water breaks the paint about from the mica and that gives it a super cool effect.
I kept the flowers simple, they are white by themselves and I only colored the stem with Distress Oxide Peeled Paint and the edges with Distress Oxide Walnut Stain.
