Share the love week featuring Simon Says Stamp - Day #5


Today is the last day of Winnie & Walter's Share the LOVE week featuring Simon Says Stamp. Hope you are enjoying the collaborative work between the two companies as much as I am :)



Today we have a sketch theme. Here is the sketch for you :)


If you are following my work, especially my Winnie & Walter projects, you will remember the inspiration for this sketch. ;) Ok here is my card I made for Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold and Blessings stamp set release recently.

Here is my new take on the sketch.

This time, I picked my colour inspiration from one of my paper pads. It has black, grey, two shades of yellow and green. The flowers and leaves stamps are from Simon Says Stamp Thinking of You stamp set and Winnie & Walter's The Write Stuff: Leave it to Mum stamp set. I have stamped and layered the flowers and leaves in shades of greys, greens and yellows. I really love this colour combinations. All the inks were from Simon Says Stamp as well.

I then stamped the sentiment with Versafine black ink and heat embossed. The back contrasts the subtle colours on the background. I thought a few Sparkly Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh is essential to the panel. I have then layered the panel with pattern paper on the background before I have taped the layers on the card front. Here is a close up!
