Anything Goes - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


Here at the
This week it is ANYTHING GOES

Featuring Products by PENNY BLACK

You do not have to use the featured company to join in.

If you have some of their product in your stash,

we would LOVE to see them used.

Here is my take on this challenge.

When swiping thru social media one evening I noticed that

 a lot of projects are using embossing powder again.

I wanted to do something experimental.

 I grabbed a jar of Antique Gold Embossing Powder by Simon Says Stamp

and the Bountiful Beauty Stamp by Penny Black and just started creating.

Unfortunately, I did not take pictures as I went.

Quite honestly, I was having too much fun!

 It just relaxing just to create with no expectations.

I finally settled on a pattern that I like using the larger sunflower style stamp.

Once I embossed the gold on the card stock, it was time to lay down some color.

This came in the form on Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.

I dabbed on some ink heavy in spots and this blended everything out.

When I wiped off the extra ink I was shocked at the results.

 The background looked almost leather like.

Loving the results, a grabbed for my favorite rectangle die

Memory Box Rectangle Basic Set and die cut out the top of the card,

a middle panel and a card base.

 Kraft cardstock from my stash is my choice for my card base,

 but I wanted gold for the middle panel.

Easy enough, Tarnished Brass Distress Paint to the rescue.

Using my finger, I smeared a little around the edge of the

 middle panel and dried it with a heat tool.

Once I was sure everything was dry, I assembled my card.

I added on a simple sentiment strip with the same Kraft Cardstock.

I also add on a few sequins from the Autumn Sequin Mix by Simon Says Stamp

and a slight smear of Solar Flare Glitter Gel by Ranger Ink

across the top to add some light catching sparkle.

That completes my take on ANYTHING GOES
