Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday Bear

It's Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog's 10th Birthday~

I'm so excited!

I have the honor of being a guest designer, here's what I created:

Click below to see the new challenge this week:

Here's the supply list for my card:

 Simon Says Stamp Magical Christmas bear die, CZ Design Wafer Dude die, Simon Says Stamp Wild Beauty sentiment , Tim Holtz Distress ink, Avery Elle Wonky Stitches, Versafine Onyx black,Arteza Watercolor Real Brush Pens

As for the process:

I die cut this classic bear and sponged it with blue distress ink before removing the die,which left a clean outline on the edge.

Next I used two Arteza Real Brush pens to create an ombre background on watercolor paper 

(if you wet down the paper first, it flows sooo much smoother).

After the watercolor paper dried, I die cut the best part out 

(the panel will sit flatter if you cut AFTER you paint).

The products I listed under my second pic can be found at Simon Says Stamp's store and most are linked directly.

Play along for a chance to win one of 10 generous vouchers!

 Thank you for stopping by~
