Hello friends! It is Monday again and a new Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge is up and it is not your regular paper. There are so many cool specialty papers, so you will have a lot of options for this challenge.
I used a whole bunch of different papers and surfaces on this tag. Watercolour paper is not really a specialty paper for me, since it is pretty much one of my go-to papers, it might even be the paper that I use the most. If you have never tried it, I encourage you to do so, the effect you get with watercolour techniques is hard to beat with any other paper. I used my new Brusho crystals for the background, a very cool watercolour paint in crystal form. I will be doing a video on it as soon as school starts again.
The background was done by misting the tag with water and sprinkling a tiny bit of Brusho crystals on top. You only need a very small amount. I misted it one more time to help spread the paint. The butterflies were die cut from wood veneer paper and stamped with the Tiny Alphabet stamp. I love this sentiment from the One With Nature set, as well as the other sentiments in the set.
Here's a close up of the cool Brusho colour. I love watercolour and I am going to have fun with these crystals.
The leaves were stamped on cork with Jet Black ink and cut out. There is also a coordinating die set.
I gave the butterflies a game spinner body.
I hope you will join us in our challenge and explore some to you new surfaces to work on. As always, one lucky participant wins a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp.
