Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

Hi!  Welcome to my blog this fine day!  Today I'm bringing you my card for the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week. Our theme is Travel/Cityscapes - fun!  I thought this Stampendous I Love Paris cling stamp would be perfect, and I love it!  

SSS Apri9l 17, Travel

I stamped it using Hero Arts Charcoal mid-tone ink, and stamped the flowers again on a print from Jillibean Soup's Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup, then fussy cut them out and pieced them to the big panel.  Then I scuffed up the edges of my panel and edged them with Spun Sugar distress ink.  I used that ink also to dye some seam binding for my bow.  This scrumptious background paper is from a Bo Bunny pad called Isabella, and I used one of their brads, also, on my bow.  Since this stamp is so big, I couldn't layer as much as I'd have liked, but I did add a doily and some pale grey pearls.

As usual, Heidi is giving away another $50.00 gift voucher to the random winner of this challenge.


You can use it for anything you'd like at the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!  Good luck!
