As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


It’s been a while since I’ve had the chance to play with my Clearly Besotted stamps and boy, have I missed it!  I was so chuffed to see we were featuring them for this week’s Wednesday Challenge but then I had a struggle to decide which of the many sets to use!  One of my all-time favourites is Modern Christmas (designed by my bestie Amy Gray) and as I’m in total Christmas mode I thought this would be the perfect one to ink up!  I started by heat embossing in white, three of the Christmas trees and then used Abandoned Coral Distress ink mixed with a little water to add colour to them.  For the card panel I sponged some of the same colour mixed with a little Spun Sugar Distress ink but I wanted a little more “something”!  So, I took an acrylic block and scribbled some AC ink onto it and spritzed with water to make a puddle.  I then used a small paintbrush to flick splatters onto the card base and also mixed in a little Perfect Pearls for a touch of shimmer.  To finish I arranged the tress onto foam adhesive and added a few Iridescent sequins from Little Things From Lucy’s Cards then stamped the sentiment in Smoke ink from Simon Says Stamp.


So now it’s YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
