Simon Says Stamp Plaid Challenge

Hello!

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Simon Says Stamp Plaid Challenge. I was going to use some striped stamps to make my own plaid design but then started looking through my stacks of paper. I found this cute blue print, though technically it's a check pattern. But I thought it would work for the plaid challenge.

Deer To Me

Can you believe it's already July? This year feels like it is flying by. Spring and Summer are my favorite seasons, so I of course wish I could slow them down some ;-)

Today's card started out by wanting to play some more with the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. I took a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and and older stripe background stamp. Using Versamark I stamped on the background, then applied white embossing powder and heat set that. Next I just used the fossilized amber and cracked pistachio Distress Oxide Inks and blended those together. Then I sprayed some water on there a few times to add some more visual interest.


As I was looking at the final background trying to decide what to do next, I spotted my new Simon Says Stamp So Deer stamp set and decided to play around with it. So I stamped the two deer in black ink then colored them in with my Copic markers. Next I fussy cut them then went around the edges with a black marker. Finally I took a piece of yellow cardstock, cut a strip, stamped the sentiment and attached it with a tiny attacher. I love how cute this turned out and used it as my niece's birthday card.
