Thinking of You 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 "Thinking of You".

For this card I started with black and white washi tape in lots of different styles. I used the Dapper and Purveyor stamp sets together with the Stamp Platform to fill up some of the empty spots. I've applied a layer of Clear Gesso over it. After the gesso was dry I used a layer of Opal Magic Paint Rose Gold, this gave the black a golden glow.


At first I intended a monochrome look, but decided to add some color with Metallique Paints. And I used the Metallique Golden Moss Paint for the first time and what an amazing color that is. I applied it with a brush and spread it with a sprayer, and later again with a brush. Then I used the Metallique Paint Steampunk Copper and Rustic Brown in the same way. I also applied a spritz of Nuvo Sparkle Spray, but this one has silver glitter in it and didn't really match with all the gold.


I painted the Triplex die black, but later I thought I wanted to add some texture, and I used Nuvo Expanding Mousse (thanks Marzena!) And heated it well. After another layer of black paint I applied Metallique Wax Bronze Age and Antique Brilliance Wax Lucky Emerald. The shadow I made with a black Big Brush.
