Simon Says Stamp Challenge {All Creatures Great and Small}


Hey stampers! Well it's another snowy day in New England (shocker, they all seem to be snowy days lately!) We're at the tail end of yet another blizzard…and that means I'm hunkered down in my stamp room for the afternoon! My stamp room is in the basement with lots of lighting, so I'm just going to pretend there aren't 4-5 feet of snow on the ground right now k?

I'm spending the afternoon watching videos on distress inks and crafting up my own storm. I've had distress inks for several months now, but I'm still not feeling too comfortable with them. Well, I happened upon THIS video by Kristina Werner and could not resist making my own version of her card to go along with the latest Simon Says Stamp challenge. I don't have the variety of colors Kristina has (soon to be remedied, don't you worry!), so my "ocean" is a little less dramatic than hers. I'm still loving this technique though!

The stamps I used are Smiley Happy Critter Crew Set Three from Your Next Stamp, and Seaside Wishes for the sentiment from Sugar Pea Designs.

For my distress inks I used Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean. I colored my fish with Copics in Y18, YR07, YR15, R22, R24, R27.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
