Hello! It's Wednesday and another new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog!
This week our theme is Triangles! The design team and our August Guest Designer Debby Hughes are using products from The Crafter's Workshop. If you have any of them, we'd love to see your ideas, but it's not a requirement for the challenge. I used their Mini Tri Mosaic stencil and made 2 cards for you today.
For this card I started with a beautiful paper from Authentique's Cherish collection, then used spun sugar and antique linen distress inks to sponge the triangle design over it. I roughed up my edges, darkened them with more distress ink and bent over the top left corner, then added the Simon exclusive Ariana Wreath die, a sentiment from Hero Arts Daisy Label, and a paper rose and pink pearls.
I went a bit more modern for this one. Starting with a white piece of cardstock, I used some Gelatos with my stencil. After removing the stencil, there was too much of a contrast for my taste, so I used a damp washcloth to tamp the color into the white areas around the triangles. Next I overstamped with 2 Hero Arts background stamps: Envelope Pattern and Dots and Flowers. I added some music, embossed in white, then my paper doily, and Precious Hearts dies, and finished with a sentiment from All Occasion Messages.
As always, Heidi has provided a $50.00 gift voucher to the random winner of this challenge.
Thanks for visiting today!
