Simon Says Monday Challenge

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – Gentlemen

I had a “manly” card to make for a man and so this challenge segues nicely with this theme! 


Still trying to play with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  I cut six pieces of cardstock to fit the card base.  Next I chose a simple Studio G pattern stamp and used embossing with clear on each square.  I chose Crushed Olive, Tumbled Glass and Ripe Persimmon inks and after this I edged each rectangle with Pumice Stone.  I fixed each square onto bright white cardstock and glued them to the card base. 


I stamped the Get Well Soon by Hero ArtsHero Arts with black Versamark ink and then added clear emboss over this and again the Studio G patterned around the edges.  After heat embossing I brushed the edges with the Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  I backed the sentiment with black cardstock, under which I used glue dots to fix the olive colored twine in place.  I added some gems at the end!

Hope you enjoyed your visit here!
