Happy Wednesday - welcome to our challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!
Before we get started today, I wanted to say a fond farewell to our teammate Debby Yates at A Scrapjourney. She is one of the original dt members when this challenge blog began 11+ years ago, and she has her own beautifully unique style. Please take the time to pay her a visit and let her know how much she's appreciated. We'll miss you, Debby!
We have a fun theme for you this week - Recycle! I'll admit that I had to put my thinking cap on for this one......but after looking around the house, I found a Kleenex cube in these greys and blues and cut it apart for my background.
supplies: Surf Blue, Fog, and Slate cardstock, a panel from a Kleenex cube, Simon Delicate Flowers and sentiment from Beautiful Day, colored pencils for shading on leaves and flower, silver and turquoise sequins, adhesive foam to lift up flower
Once I found my recycled item, I pulled out cardstock to match. Not being a colorist, I found it easier to stamp my flower and leaves on aqua and grey card, then shade them slightly with colored pencils. I chose my sentiment because of the font and size of it. And with all those dots in the background, it was a natural progression to adding some sequins for sparkle.
Now it's your turn! We have a $25.00 gift certificate
to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge! I can't wait to see what you all make this week!
