This week at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge we want to see Silver, Blue and White (other colours can be incorporated but we would these three to be predominant) - it doesn't have to be a Christmas card or project any occasion will be great!! The Design Team are all featuring Penny Black this week.
I love this Penny Black - Snowy - he is coloured with distress inks and I used a liquid applique on his hat. I applied the applique, then covered it with Glamour Dust, waited for it to dry then heated it with my heat gun.
Here's where the stupid me took over - I decided to use a circular die to cut out Snowy - anyone with any brains in their head would have realised this would squash the applique!!! It still looks good, but it looked fantastic before - all puffy and fluffy!!
I use a Fleur de lis border and cut it to edge the circle which is then inked using Colourbox Inks, I normally use distress inks to ink edges but find these colourbox ones better for inking irregular shapes.
The fabulous papers are from a CD by Donna at Bearly Mine - Simon Says Stamp now sell the CD - I would be lost without these as a standby for certain colours or types and the piece behind Snowy is embossed using the Cuttlebug Snowy Dots folder. I've used a old corner stamp with silver Ranger Embossing Powder in the corners, the sentiment is Magnolia and the bow and snowflake are from my stash.
