Corrugated Curiosity

Hi everyone,

Monday equals a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week we ask you to not use regular paper, but special paper such as glitter paper, corrugated cardboard, tissue paper, vellum etc. Let the challenge begin!


I like corrugated cardboard and hadn't used it for a while. I usually use it with neutral and darker colors, it seemed like a fun idea to bring in some bright colors this time. For the background I chose Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Fossilized Amber.



To bring together the two corrugated board pieces in the two corners and also the sentiment, I stamped it on a piece of vellum. With the Barn Door Distress Marker I colored in the word "Curiosity", and I gave it a bit of sparkle with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.



For contrast, I played with the Botanical Remnant Rubs, only the cardstock I used is somewhat porous and is not really suitable for rub-ons. The top layer of the cardstock came off in some places... After a bit of fidgeting I managed to get them on. It needed more dimension, so I have doodled a little with a White Sharpie Pen.

This is really lovely and I like how you made the word "Curiosity" pop with the red. It's a great sentiment and a perfect combination of colors. Love how the corrugated cardboard turned out, too!
