Simon Says : Thanks/Thanksgiving





Hello Friends

It is a very happy me welcoming you to my blog today. I'm absolutely thrilled to have been invited to be the Spotlight Designer for the Simon Says Monday Challenge. It is such an honor and  must say that I did a little happy dance when I received the email from Lols





I will be posting special Spotlight Designer posts every Monday this month for the Simon says Monday Challenge



The theme for this week is Thanks/Thanksgiving. I created a shabby chic card for a lovely friend...... this is totally NOT my style but my friend loves Pink and soft colors so I tried making something which would please her :) 

I started with white card stock and gave it a coat of matte Medium. the Matte medium works like clear gesso and allows inks and layers of wet mediums on card stock without warping. 

 I used Picked Raspberry, Evergreen Bough and Mustard Seed distress inks, Tim holtz layering stencils and Finger daubers to get this..........



I softened  the edges with some white gesso  .......


Added Picked Raspberry ink with some white crackle medium and added through Tim Holtz Splotches stencil. 

 Distressed the edges with Picked Raspberry and Ground Expresso........

I die cut three ovals from some pattern paper and auditioned some embellishments from my stash.........


Final layer on the card background is some texture stamping with black archival ink and script stamps from Bo Bunny......


stamped the sentiment, mounted on black card stock and used clear crackle glaze on the sentiment and oval die cut, added crackle glaze on flower edges and sprinkled Rock Candy glitter to add some glamour........












I hope you liked seeing the details of my project , do not forget to participate in the Simon Says Monday Challenge. This week the challenge is Thanks/Thanksgiving. The first week of the month also showcases a product and this week it is IndigoBlu stamps so if you have some we'd love to see how you use them.if you don't have any, you can still create something for the theme and enter the challenge.
