Yup. That's my post title for the day. Yup. It's awesome. Obviously today is going to be awesome because of it. For reals, though.
That title, however, is not JUST for being awesome, it is to tell you about the brand new Wednesday Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp! We are challenging you to create your own backgrounds this week! No patterned papers - you can use plates, stencils, stamps, or whatever you'd like to create your own background! The design team is showcasing stencils and Gelli plates this week, so you are going to have some AWESOME inspiration! I decided to play with a stencil and some embossing pastes! DUDE!!! It was messy. I don't usually do messy, but I had a BLAST with this one!!!
I used both the black and the pearlescent embossing pastes from Dreamweaver. I started with one, allowed it to dry, shifted my stencil (after cleaning it, of course) and then did the second color. Seriously, you guys. WAY FUN STUFF!!!
SO... here's the deal. Create a NEW project with a background created by YOU and link it up to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Blog! Be sure to include a link back to the challenge in your post. You can enter up to FIVE times. Please turn off your word verification so I don't have to punch your blog in the face. Hmmm.... other than that, HAVE FUN!!!!
One lucky participant is going to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store! DUDE! That's flippin' amazing! So join in. What do you have to lose?!
