Hello Friends! Hope everyone is having a great day!

Please join me in this week’s challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge .

This week the challenge is

Anniversary/Wedding

We are showcasing Impression Obsession products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift Vouches for the Simon Says Stamp Store to one randomly selected winner!

Here is my card for the challenge inspiration.

I wanted to use the color Emerald Green for this project, so I started by stamping out the background stamp, You’re the Marshmallow from Impression Obsession onto some watercolor paper panel using the Versamark Watermark ink pad. Then I used the White Embossing Powder from Simon Says Stamp and did some heat embossing.

I watercolored the panel in a slightly emerald green ombre using my Mijello Mission Gold watercolors. The exact colors I used were Vandyke Green and Hooker’s Green. Then I cut the panel to be slightly smaller than an A2 sized card. I took my nuvo glue pen and on the edges applied some glue. I added the Tonic Radiant Gold Nuvo Gilding Flakesย  and after it had set, I used my stencil brush to remove the excess.

I stamped the cake from the Reverse Confetti Candles n’ Confetti stamp set onto some watercolor paper using Antique Linen Distress Ink and did some no line coloring. I fussy cut the cake. I took a strip of Neenah Solar White 80 lb cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Forever After Stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.

I attached everything on top of an A2 sized top folding card base made from Neenah Desert Storm 100 lb cardstock and added some emerald colored and clear sequins for some interest.

That’s all for this card.

I would really urge you to try the Nuvo Gold Gilding flakes because they are so much fun and you can do so much with them.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!

You have until Wed 8 a.m. Ohio time, 1 p.m. UK time and 2 p.m. CET to join in.
