Birds of a Fearther art journal spread 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 "Birds of a Feather".



It was time for an art journal spread once again. I started to stamp the edges with the Halftone stamp. Then I gave the bottom a light green color with Opal Magic Green-Gold paint and the top a light blue color with Nuvo Mousse Aquamarine. On top I've applied Copper Crackle Paste with the Ricket stencil.

 

When the crackle paste was dry, I played around with the infusions to create more depth and more color. And of course it needed birds, and I chose the Scribbly Birds. I colored them with Distress Oxide, the left one is a redbreast/robin and the right one is a cardinal. Well, that is what I hope they  look like, LOL!

Winter Blues 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 "Winter Blues".


Winter is not my season, I think you know that by now LOL! I don't like the cold at all, but I can appreciate the beauty of the snow if I don't have to go out;). Luckily for me, the winter in the Netherlands fortunately is still very mild, although I know that isn't good for nature at all... I also find the short days so depressing, but fortunately the shortest day is already behind us and we are slowly approaching to the longest day. In those short, dark days, everyone suffers from winter blues at some point, right?

 

For this challenge I made a birthday card, a bit of a winter vibe and especially with a lot of blues. I started with Distress Oxide Faded Jeans and Distress Ink Stormy Sky. I've put these in the middle of the card. I applied on the bottom Nuvo Mousse Pacific Teal and then used the Swiss Dots stencil for some depth. I used the top Nuvo Mousse Old Navy and the Mini Dot Fade.

 

As main feature I used the Spellbinders Ferns, I gave them different colors with Nuvo Mousse. Pacific Teal, Old Navy, Aquamarine and Seaspray Green. Pacific Teal gives a different color than you expect, it's different from the other mousses. It seems more transparent.
