Ornamental

Hi everyone,

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog has a new challenge: Ornaments! It's almost the season, so maybe you're inspired to make some Christmas ornaments or Christmas rosettes. But maybe you want to have some fun with ornaments stamps. Let us know what inspired you!

This ornamental stamp is a member of my collection for a while now, and I only used it once or twice. Perfect for this challenge! I started with a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. I made a pattern with it. Then I stamped it seven times on masking tape and cut them out. Placed them over the stamped images to ensure that the inside of the frames retain white.

 


Purple was the color that came to mind thinking of the background, so I created a background with Seedless Preserves. I made the edges a bit darker and the center of the card a lot lighter to adhence the center frame. To make it even more a focal point, I've applied a layer of Crackle Paint. The sentiment from Simon Says Stamp fits perfectly under the ornament, I think it was speciallys made for it!

Fantastic Crackle! Love how you kept the middle masked and popped the silhouettes! Mine would have definitely bled into the circles! :)
