Hello friends! I hope your weekend was a good one. Leo and I went for two pretty long walks, which was fun. He enjoys sitting in his stroller and notice all kinds of interesting things along the way - and stopping at a playground or two.
This week at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we have a Chill Out challenge. It could be anything from winter, to something about relaxing and chilling out.
I made a wintery card this week, using a lovely stamp by Penny Black as my focal point. I ordered this stamp a couple of months ago, but hadn't inked it up yet. This card has a lot of layers, most of which I found on my desk while tidying up - and that made tidying up much more fun too.
The Frosty Day was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Hero Arts Vintage Metallic Ombre ink. To get the look of windows, I embossed it with clear powder. After embossing, I inked the edges and also applied ink to the bars, by using Ranger's Craft Nib.
You might see the effect of the embossing powder a little better on this photo.
The sentiment was stamped on a Tattered Curvy Banner, and I also added three little Prima flowers. Aren't they cute? The sentiment was stamped with the darkest shade on the Ombre ink pad.
I really hope you will join us in our Chill Out challenge. As every week, 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.
