Doodly Birthday card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Let's Doodle".



Doodling is something I'm not really good at, but I always like a challenge. I started to apply some texture by using the Tiles stencil together with some Texture Paste. On top of that I applied Opal Magic Green and Violet-Gold paint. After everything was dry, it was time for Infusions. This time I didn't use any Mod Podge , but I immediately started working with Infusions and water. There was enough color there from the Opal Magic paint.

 

Then I started doodlin with a white pen, but because the Infusions react when they get wet, the white didn't stay white. Kept going anyway, but finally chose to go over it with a black pen. I also worked with a few doodle-like stamps, which I colored with different colors of Distress Oxide Ink.

Raven myth thinking of you card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Mythology/Inspired By A Story".



The myth I've chosen is the one of Huginn and Muninn, the two ravens of the god Odin. Huginn (thought) and Muninn (memory) depart daily from Asgard and fly over all nine worlds of Nordic mythology. At the end of the day they return to Asgard, sit on the shoulders of Odin and whisper all the news from the different worlds in his ears.

 

First I gave the background a color and a shimmer with Nuvo Mousse Old Navy and Seaspray Green. Then I started building up the background with 4 different colors of Infusions (In the Navy, Sleight Blue, Green Man and Black Knight). For some texture I added Nuvo Mousse Black Ash with the Latticework stencil.

 

The ravens are from the Feather and Ravens die set. I've given them more definition with Nuvo Mousse Pure Platinum. In addition to my usual washi tape, I also used the Film Ribbon.
