Simon Says: Bright and Cheerful

Happy Wednesday! That also means it's time for another fun challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog!


This week Simon Says: Bright and Cheerful! The design team is featuring Hero Arts products, you don't have to but we would love to see them!

Simon Says Stamp graciously offers a $50 gift voucher to their store for one lucky winner.


When I saw the theme of this challenge I just had to use my new Hero Arts Beach Please stamp set with that sweet dog!


I started by stamping my images and coloring them with my Copic markers and used the accompanying dies with my Sizzix Sidekick. I then die cut a piece of Neena solar white card stock using the Mama Elephant stitched die.  I created masks and I started with by blending my sand using Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Inks.


I then used a piece of PostIt tape to mask my water and used Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink. I then added my sun in the corner with Squeezed Lemonade and a circular blending tool making it easy to shape it. I masked off my water and used the MFT Stencil Cloud with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink and sprayed the entire panel with my Distress sprayer for texture. I added dabs of Picket Fences Distress Paint to mimic the surf coming in. I placed my panel to the side to let it dry.


I then die cut my Simon Says Stamp Sending die with black card stock and stamped and gold embossed the Sunshine sentiment from the Hero Arts Beach set. I placed all of my images on the panel and finished it off with some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling clear sequins!
