Simon Says........Make Your Own Background

wed-newchallenge-header

Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!


Our theme this week is "Make Your Own Background"and the Design Team are using My Favorite Things products.  If you have any of their products, we'd love to see you using them, too.  I made 2 cards today using their stamp set called Sunflower Sweetheart.

SSS April 15

supplies: My Favorite Things Petal Pattern stencil, Ranger Texture Paste, gold pearls, Simon's Surf Blue cardstock, Sunflower Sweetheart, colored with alcohol markers

I had this little cutie carry a daisy, and then used the Petal Pattern stencil to make daisies for my background.  The sentiment is one of 5 in this set.

For my next card, I used the sunflowers from the stamp set and stamped them repeatedly to make a background, then overlaid that with a sheet of vellum to soften them and then added the little girl again, this time with the fence from the set.

supplies: Sunflower Sweetheart, Simon's Stitched Rectangle, alcohol markers to color, gold and white cardstock, vellum
