Hi stampers! I hope you had a good weekend! We went to a fun Halloween parade and my son also enjoyed trick or treating. He decided to say 'happy Halloween' instead of 'trick or treat'. I die cut a whole lot of Tim Holtz Ghosts for him, which he handed out. It is Monday again and of course a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. The theme this week is Glossy, and there are lots of possibilities with this theme (Glossy Accents, glossy embossing powder, gloss paste or paint and more).
Ever since I started stamping, one of my favourite surfaces has been glossy cardstock. I just love the look of dye ink on glossy cardstock and the wonderful crisp stamped images that you get. I made three different winter cards using stamps by Penny Black. This first one, the Snowy Grove, was stamped with Potting Soil and Jet Black Archival inks. Isn't is a gorgeous stamp with the trees and the snow?
For the last card, I used the beautiful Hidden Lane stamp, also stamped with Jet Black ink. I coloured it the same way as the other two, using the Stylus tool for the sky, trees and ground, and a Craft Nib for the fence.
Ranger's White Pigment ink was again added to give shine to the snow, and to add some mist under the trees.
I hope you will join us in our Glossy challenge! As always you have a chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp. You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.
