Simon Says STAMP Wednesday Challenge

The current challenge at Simon Says STAMP Wednesday Challenge is

The Color Of Love 

It will be Valentine’s Day soon so anything with a love theme.

When I saw this challenge, I knew what I needed to do. I was inspired by this card by the incredible Virginia Lu


When I originally saw Virginia's card, I had to order the die right away. It's likely that without Virginia's inspiration, I would not have made this purchase. It's Simon Says STAMP Heart of Flowers die.

Here's my card

I made my card a bit differently from the way Virginia describes on her blog. I made little scribbles with distress crayons (mustard seed, spiced marmalade, picked raspberry, festive berries, twisted citron, seedless preserves, peacock feathers, mermaid lagoon). With a waterbrush, I blended the colours. I tried to position combinations of colour to coincide with different areas of the die. It was a bit time-consuming to adhere the small pieces. However, I'm so happy the way it turned out. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Word Salad.

  1. I am loving your take on my card, Sue! It is absolutely gorgeous! The mixed colors on your heart die are so artsy and beautiful! I am glad to enable you on getting this SSS heart die! Imagine you can apply the same method on many other types of dies!!? :) Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “The Color of Love” Challenge! Beautiful colors and design. Well done!
