Thank You 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 "Thanks/Thanksgiving".

The technique of embossing with a stencil is a new favorite of mine! The subtle look that it gives is really amazing. With different autumnal colors of Distress Ink I made the background. I did this for a second time after I had created some depth with water drops.


The cute Crazy Dog I colored with Distress Markers. It's so weird that the Vintage Photo looks different when it's wet than when it is dry. The Texture paste that I've made black with Black Soot Distress Paint,  I applied with the Sunset Sunrise stencil.




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.
