Darkroom Door Masculine 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 "Masculine". We're also showcasing Darkroom Door products, if you have any (it's not mandatory) we would like to see them used in your project.

For the Darkroom Door product, I used the Bold Arrows stamp. For the first layer of the background I've tried to create pattern with the MISTI. Then I've applied a layer of Opal Magic Green-Gold paint on top of it. With different Infusions I've given the background a little more color.


As a focal point, I stamped the Bold Arrows with Walnut Stain and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide. I cut them out and distressed the edges with Distress Crayon Black Soot. On the edges of Just Sayings  frame I've doodled with a White Gelly Roll pen.




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.
