Simon Says Stamp Kristina's Inspiration Challenge


Hi everyone,

Can you believe it's August already?!?! Wow! Time flys! I'm back today to share a card for this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge!



This week's challenge is an Inspiration challenge and our inspiration comes from our Guest Designer this month, the one and only Kristina Werner. The design team is using Basic Grey products for this challenge.


Here's my card:



I heat embossed both Basic Grey/Hero Arts background stamps and colored them in with alcohol inks. I didn't have a grey one so I painted in the grey areas with Pumice Stone Distress Stain.
Here are the products I used:



As always, the very generous Heidi of Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher to one lucky participant in this week's challenge so I hope you'll play along...but first head over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to see what the other designers have created! :)
