Ancient Greece 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 "Vacation".

As you know, I love to go on city trips, and then I often visit cities with ancient history. I have only been to Greece once, but the museums I often visit have beautiful ancient Greek statues from. These molds from Prima Marketing remind me of those statues and what a great way to put my two hobbies together in one project.


I started with the background. I colored this with Opal Magic Paint in soft colors. Then I used the Simon Says Stamp Waves stamp from the new Rest and Refresh release together with White Embossing Powder. After I applied a layer of Gesso to all resin shapes, I first applied color to them before I adhered them. The colors weren't quite as I wanted and I kept adding color until I was happy with them. The background colors were too soft and I made these colors darker. I've really been playing around with this card. Didn't so much things to this one as the last and kept it way less busy.




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.
