Butterfly 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 "Little Critters".

Still not feeling well at all, but fortunately I had some energy to make a project AND edit the video this week. Hope you'll like it...


I played with my Gelli Plate and did a technique that I've learned last year on a craft event with regular Distress Inks. I don't really see the difference between the two inks. I think I need to experiment more with the Gelli Plate and Distress Oxides.




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. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.

Follow Simon Says Stamp on Instagram
If you use instagram add #sssmchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Always such a treat to watch your videos--so packed with technique and great inspiration. I haven't tried using distress inks with a gelli plate but plan to after this. I agree about oxides versus regular but I, too, need to experiment more. The biggest difference to me is the slightly chalky appearance. Please feel better soon.
