Party Invite with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! The next two weeks it's all about "Party Time".

Every year around this time I send out invitations for my birthday. So this party theme fits perfectly. I started with Heavystock and 3 different colors Infusions, Blackcurrant, Slime and Green Man. While the paper was still wet from the water, I used some extra Infusions and immediately stamped the Papillon background stamp and used it as ink on the part of the paper without Infusions. This gives it a very nice colorful watercolor effect.


After everything was dry, I used the Crate stencil with Texture Paste and Distress Paint Black Soot. Even before it was completely dry, I made subtle prints with the Read to Me stamp into the Texture Paste, in addition to stamping the background with it. For a bit of contrast, I used Gold Foil cardstock with the new Simon Says Stamp Rounded Alphabet die set of the Diecember release.




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!
