Simon Says.........Color Inspiration


It's time for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog!

This week we'd like to use our color inspiration board below, created by our talented teamie Jenn Shurkus:

Oct 14th Color Challenge

The Design Team are using Stampendous products this week.  My first card uses a cling set that was introduced back at CHA January, and it was so popular at the time it took me months to get it.  This uses only one of the 3 flower choices in that set, and I really like it done in these fall colors!

supplies: cream cardstock, Stampendous Build a Bouquet cling stamps, patterned papers from a discontinued DCWV fall stack called Pumpkin Patch, Simon/Clearly Besotted Autumn Blessings sentiment, tiny gold pearls

I was influenced by 2 of those scenes up above in our inspiration for my next card:

supplies: white and Simon's Fog Gray cardstock, Stampendous PenPattern Owl cling stamp, VersaMark ink and Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder,  various markers to color, Spellbinder's circle die to cut moon, PTI cloud die as mask for background clouds, sentiment from a Hero Arts Halloween clear set, now discontinued

The owl was stamped and embossed in Liquid Platinum to give him a glow, then colored using the colors that were highlighted in our inspiration.

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you create!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher

to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!

Oh, Lin, what amazing cards, and I am particularly in awe of how you've used the Build A Bouquet with the DP to make an autumn bouquet in a Mason jar. I love it! And the owl is just darling! Hugs!
