Simon Says - It's Up In The Air

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
The UK is getting ready to celebrate our glorious Majesty's Platinum Jubilee. The normally reserved and stiff upper lip Brits do love a good party and nobody does pomp and ceremony quite like we do. I've made invitations for my Jubilee party guests using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous London Sights, sentiment and balloon from Simon Says Happiest Wishes decorated with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Bold Thinlits.

I began by trimming Distress Watercolor card to 3.3/4" x 5". I coloured the different sections of the Union Jack image from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous with Zig Clean Color Markers, spritzed lightly with water and stamped on to the panel.
I stamped the Big Ben image from the London Sights stamp set and the sentiment from Simon Says Happiest Wishes stamp set from the June Card Kit, inked with Black Soot Distress Archival.
I inked around the edge of the panel with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink using a mini round blending tool, flicked on water droplets and dried. I masked off the bear on the image from Simon Says Happiest Wishes and stamped the balloon with Black Soot Distress Archival.
I die-cut the letters ER from Idea-ology Black and Gold Metallic KraftStock using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanuameric Bold Thinlits and fixed inside the balloon, slightly offset to create a drop shadow, with Distress Collage Medium.
|I applied Ranger Glossy Accents over the balloon and set aside to dry.
I matted the panel on to Idea-ology Black KraftStock trimmed to 4" x 5.1/4" and fixed to an A2 white card blank.

How adorable are these Corgi Cookies from M&S
