Hip Hop Mother's Day 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 "Hip Hop". Like in the music or in rabbits for Easter!

The inspiration for my card comes from the hip hop artist 2pac with the song Dear Mama. That's why I've made a Mother's Day card, and used a few stamps from the new Simon Says Stamp Mother, Fathers and florals release.
I started  on Distress Heavystock and  used Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade and Amber Fossilized Distress Oxide ink for my background. That heavystock is truly amazing and  itcan withstand a lot of water which is a great property when working with Distress Oxide.


With Walnut Distress Oxide I've stamped the  Flower Medallion Background stamp. This Oxide ink works so much better with stamping than Distress Ink. With a water brush I've oxidized some a part of the stamp. In the video you can see how quickly it happens while drying. With the White Gelly Roll pen I've added some white accents.



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.
