Simon Says Stamps Challenge and Whiff of Joy DT - Stars and Stripes

Time for another Simon Says Stamp challenge!! As always we are sponsored by the super generous Heidi who is offering the winner a $50 credit voucher for the Simon Says Stamp store!!


Our theme this week is stars and stripes! I have used paper by Bo Bunny and one of the stamps from the Whiff of Joy summer kit.






I inked the edges of the paper with walnut stain distress ink and then created a blackboard with some coredinations cardstock.


I have coloured Willow with copics and added glossy accents to her glasses.


The numbers are another stamp from the Whiff of Joy kit. I've stamped them with opaque white stazon to look like chalk on the blackboard! The flowers are a mixture from my stash. The flat yellow flowers are by Hero Arts and the gorgeous pink one is by Prima.


The "You make the grade" sentiment is also from the kit, again stamped with white to look like chalk.

The star I have made from grungeboard using a sizzix die. I embossed the grungeboard first with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. I inked the star with walnut stain distress ink and then sprayed it with gold cosmic shimmer.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Simon Says Stamps challenge. Pop over to the blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the team - gorgeous as always! Thanks for looking! x
