We have a BRAND NEW challenge for you over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog! This week it is all about CREATING YOUR OWN BACKGROUND! Umm... yup. So that's fun stuff, folks. For reals, though. The design team is featuring Faber-Castell Gelatos this week! You don't have to use them to play along, but if you have some, we'd love to see what you do with them! They are such a fun medium to work in! SO versatile!
I actually went a slightly different route and used my gelatos as a water color medium on my images and used embossing paste for the background that I created. I love the tone on tone textured background using the brand new Dots and Lines stencil behind the adorable pumpkins. To watercolor with the gelatos, I simply colored on a craft sheet and then used my waterbrush to paint the pumpkins. I SO love this look!
Now it's YOUR turn! Create a project with your own unique background and link it up for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store!
ALSO... I wanted to let you guys know that I have a few more de-stash mystery boxes ready to ship. They are Medium Flat Rate USPS Priority boxes that I can ship to US addresses only. I am asking $45 SHIPPED for these boxes. (That is around $30 for the product! WHAT?!) They are SUPER stuffed and include both new and gently used stamp sets (over ten in each box), patterned paper, embellishments, ribbon/twine, some even include dies, inks, and more! Please email me if you are interested in purchasing one of these boxes!
