Hello Friend

Hello my friends, I'm sharing a card I made using Simon Says Daisy Heads and Windswept Leaves dies and Ticking Background Cling stamp from recent releases and Scripty Hello dies from a recent card kit.

I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to 4" x 5.1/4", smooshed Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink on to the craft mat on my Glass Media Mat, spritzed with water and pulled the card through the ink. I dried and then tapped back on to the ink to pick up the remaining droplets. I inked the Ticking Background Cling stamp with the same ink and stamped randomly on the background for a tone on tone effect. I inked the Ticking Background Cling stamp again with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink, stamped on to Distress Watercolor card, die-cut using Simon Says Windswept Leaves dies and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium.
I die-cut Simon Says Daisy Heads from Distress Watercolor card, coloured with Shaded Lilac and Ground Espresso Distress Oxide inks using Simon Says Round Detail Brushes. assembled and fixed to the panel with Distress Collage Medium on the smaller flowers and foam squares on the two larger flowers.
I added splatters of Frozen Fog Distress Mica Stain to add a little silver shimmer.
I die-cut the Scripty Hello shadow from vellum and the word 4 times from Distress Watercolor card and layered to create a dimensional sentiment.
I fixed to the panel and added the word FRIEND trimmed from Simon Says Reverse Best Friends. I inked the edges of the panel lightly with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink using a mini round blending tool, matted on to Distress Kraft HeavyStock, trimmed 1/8" larger and fixed to an A2 white card blank.

I'll be back tomorrow to share another card with the Simon Says products still sitting on my desk. In the meantime, have fun with whatever you are making.
Hugs Kath xxx
