We LOVE the amazingly wonderful peeps over at Simon Says Stamp! They are super awesome, super talented and just super sweet! They are sponsoring this challenge with a $25 gift card to Simon Says Stamp!!!!
Here's what I came up with:
For this card, I used a white card base (my normal card size is an A2, 4.25x5.5 when folded down). I then took a shimmery white cardstock and ran it through my machine with an embossing folder in a harlequin pattern.
The panel with the ampersand was a white cardstock that I used a Studio Calico Ampersand Mister Huey's Masks with some Versamark Frost Dazzle. I dabbed that on around the stencil and applied a clear embossing powder by Hampton Art. I heat set it and glued that down to my embossed panel.
The PEACE lettering are wood veneers by American Crafts. To make this work for this challenge, I stamped on my Memento Luxe, Wedding Dress ink pad. Once dry (okay, I heat set it to make it dry!), I went and dabbed on Claudine Hellmuth Studio High Gloss Acrylic Paint in Blank Canvas. I used a scrap piece of crumpled paper to dab the paint while wet to make it appear textured. I love how it came out. I wanted the ampersand to stand out as well to read the sentiment I made on the card, so I turned this wood piece on it's side to show more of the ampersand.
I used 3 sequins from Lawn Fawn Peace Joy Love Lawn Ornaments, Mixed Sequins in white for the dot of the "j" and in the upper right for fun.
