You Rock!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog

Happy Wednesday! Today we have a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge for you! This week we are creating for the men in our lives! The challenge is to create something masculine or Father's Day related! The Design Team is showcasing Ranger products this week. You don't have to use them for the challenge, but if you have them we'd love to see what you do with them! I pulled out my Waffle Flower Rock On stamp set for this one, for a different look.

You Rock


For this card, I took advantage of some of the unique properties of Ranger distress inks. I stamped my rocks with the inks (and the sentiment, too) and then used a waterbrush to create a watercolor look. I really like how it turned out.

I stacked the sentiment a few times and watercolored the top layer to coordinate with the stamped pattern. I was sure to keep the section over the rock pile lighter, while making the portion over the white darker so it would stand out.

Now it's YOUR turn! Create something fabulous that fits the Father's Day/Masculine theme (be sure it is NEW!) and then link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! One lucky winner will receive a $50 voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store! Woot! Woot!


Be sure to head on over to the blog for more inspiration! And check out the links below to find the products I used on my card!

    I am thinking that the "rocks" would be so COOL if you used your thumb and other fingers in different color inks to make them too
