Life Reminders

English / Italiano

Hello Crafters!

Here we are to a brand new challange over Simon Says Stamp!


This week’s theme over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange is “Emboss it”!

I cut to shape two pieces of watercolor paper and then added color with Dylusions Paint. I let it blend and dry then I added a bit of white gesso.


I added some stamps here and there to create some interest and then I also glued down tissue wrap paper. I love that the tissue wrap paper is slightly transparent so you can still see the background behind.


And the final step was to run these two ATC through my Sizzix Machine and dry emboss them with Tim Holtz Fade Embossing Folder. I love this honeycomb fade embossing folder, then I highligh the embossed part with black acrylic.

I can’t wait to see how you interpreted this theme!

For this challange Simon Says Stamp kindly offers a $50 gift voucher to shop over Simon Says Stamp!
