Simon Says Wednesday Challenge card

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Nov 25 – “Anything Goes”

How could one go wrong with anything to choose from?  I’d been wanting to try a technique out so tonight was a good time to do this, and double triple bonus with Nina and Judy joining in again. So many inspiring DT samples I was off and running.

SSW-Nov-25-2015-Barb-Derksen

I created the “happy” with a stencil I whipped up using my Silhouette Cameo – and I tried to use a few layers of vinyl to allow an edge so that I could watercolour with my Tombow markers in shades which match the designer paper (6 x 6 by Heidi Swapp)  The vinyl stencil on the edge did not remove so easily but in the end gave the lettering a more hand painted look.  I wound up cutting a second offset with a black cardstock to bump the lettering up.  After I added ribbon and a teeny Stampin’ Up birthday then my handsome Mr deemed my card finished and stopped me from going on and making it more complicated. 

I had fun, hope you’ve enjoyed my card too!
