Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Baby It’s Cold Outside – Penny Black – Watercoloring on Hot Pressed Paper


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

Baby It’s Cold Outside

We are showcasing Penny Black 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 inspiration.

I used the Hand Mailed set from Penny Black for this challenge. I started by stamping the image on a piece of Arches Hot Pressed Watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink and watercolored it in using my Mijello Mission Gold watercolors. I trimmed it down to 2.75 inches by 5.5 inches.


I splattered some white gouache and white copic ink for snow effect. I stamped the Outline Snowflakes background stamp from Simon Says Stamp on a piece of Schoolhouse Red cardstock using Versamark Watermark Ink Pad and heat embossed in silver. I colored the snowflakes in using Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen. I added some shadows around the panel using Aged Mahogany Distress ink and trimmed it down to be 4.25 inches by 5.5 inches.


I stamped the sentiment which is from Purple Onion Designs and placed everything together on a top folding A2 sized card base made from Neenah Solar White Classic Crest 110 cardstock.


I finished it off with some frosty sequins from Simon Says Stamp. That’s all for this card. I hope you liked it.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!
