Add a Sentiment - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


Featuring Stamps and Dies by CLEARLY BESOTTED

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

But… If you have some of their product in your stash,

We would LOVE to see them used.

Here is my take on this challenge.

Keeping it clean and simple this week.

I stared out this card by creating a card front out of #120 white card stock.

I lined up the Brush Stroke Stencil on center of my card front.

Beginning at the top of the stencil I inked up the stencil 

using Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide and as I got toward the bottom

 of the stencil, I used Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide.

After the ink dried, using the Flower Friends Clear Stamp and

Onyx Black Versa Fine Ink, I stamped my flowers over the top.

Next, I used the sentiments that came with the stamp set 

and strategically stamped on my sentiment into the stenciled image on top.

For a final touch, I added on Clear sequins and attached my card front to

a card base made with Cotton Candy card stock by Simon Says Stamp

and that completes my take on ADD A SENTIMENT
