Hi there!  It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! From soft shabby chic colors to white washing with gesso, being inspired by Easter to using actual pastels, this week we challenge you to be inspired by the softer side of the color wheel…
I was inspired to create a shabby / vintage style greeting card:
One can never have too many greeting cards on hand so I thought this challenge was a great time to pull out the beautiful pastel Victorian Velvet Distress Ink pad and put it to good use. The background of the card was stamped with the text image from Papillon, heat embossed, then Victorian Velvet and Iced Spruce Distress Inks were randomly applied. For the focal point, a Mini Cabinet card was adhered in place and embellished with a crackled die cut Mini Butterfly:
For the sentiment, a Remnant Rub was applied:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you join along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see all the DT's fabulous inspiration!
Be Sweet ;)
