Make a Wish 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 "Use Your Favorite Tool". What's yours?

I just couldn't choose only one favorite tool. That is why I used my top 3 of favorites tools to make this card. The Vagabond, the MISTI and a heat tool. First I've embossed the background with the Simon Says Stamp Large Morrocan stencil. With Opal Magic Rose Gold paint and Dylusions Paint Lemon Zest I've made the first layers of color.


I'm still in love with the Infusions and this time I've only used Golden Sands. The embossing was a bit faded into the colors, and by putting Distress Crayon with my fingers in some places the embossing became more visible again.




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.
