Create Together with Marcie Sharp (and Simon's Card Kit Winner Announced)

Hi everyone!

Happy Wednesday! Today I'm stopping by to share a card I made for Marcie Sharp's Create Together Challenge. I'm so honoured she asked me to play along with her this week! We've decided our theme would be TRIANGLES!

If you've followed my little blog for any length of time you know that I LOVE geometrics and also background stamps. It should come as little surprise that Simon's new Abstract Triangles Stamp is one my favourites from their STAMPtember release.

Here's the card I made for today's challenge:

I started the card by white heat embossing Simon's Abstract Triangles Stamp on Simon's 120 lb White Cardstock and die cutting it with the rectangle from Simon's Bundle of Stitches Dies. I then masked off some of the stripes in the pattern and added some distress inks with a Mini Ink Blending Tool to create my base of colours. From there I built up additional colour with my Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors. I white heat embossed the sentiment from Simon's You Matter Stamps on their Black Cardstock and embellished with some My Mind's Eye Hooray Puffy Stickers and Doodlebug Primary Enamel Dots. I adhered the final panel to a notecard made from Simon's Slate Cardstock.

Before I go I wanted to announce the winner of the Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit.

The winner is...

Lynne in NI who said...
