Simon Says -Hang in There!

Happy Monday blog Friends! You know what this means! A new week full of crafting and getting in those challenges! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I will keep it simple today. I have a card to share with you that I made over the weekend and I used Dawny P's sketch and I am playing along with Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week. Here is the sketch and my take on the card:

My card is sized at 5X5 and I used Bazzill white cardstock for my base. The patterned papers are from American Crafts from their Adobe collection. The stamps I used are from Hampton Arts Footlongs stamps and I stamped them using my momento black tuxedo ink onto bazzill white cardstock. I colored my image in using my copics, G07,E18,E25,E29 and E33. The layers are all up on dimensionals and I cut the scalloped layers from my cricut using the Elegant Edges cartridge. I added a bit of Buttercream twine for a splash of contrasting color and inked my white layers in some fired brick distress ink. I finished off the card by doing some faux stitching with my white sakura pen.

Well that is my card for today! Thank you for stopping by! =)

Supplies: Papers: Bazzill, American Craft
Stamps: Hampton Arts
Inks: Momento tuxedo black, fired up distress ink
Twine: The Twinery (buttercream)
