Simon Says: Make your Own Background!

Hello crafty friends! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Make your Own Background! The design team is featuring always amazing Tim Holtz products this week!  It isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!

I wasn't sure where I was going with this card when I began but I have to tell you I think it's one of my favorite projects ever! I love the bright and happy colors of this card and those Crazy Birds have always been one of my favorite sets to play with! 

I started with a piece of Neena Solar White and both lightly sprayed and flecked my panel with Distress Resist which, I had never tried before.  I set that aside to dry (takes no time at all) and stamped my bird and sunglasses on another panel. I colored all of my images with my Copic markers and used the accompanying dies.

Once the panel was dry, I took a Heffy Doodle stencil and used a mix of Mustard Seed and Wild Honey Distress inks to my background. Once I removed my stencil I went over the entire panel with the same colors and a lighter hand.  I die cut the panel with a rounded rectangle die and I placed my images on the panel and that is what helped me select my sentiment! This bird is too funny!

I die die cut my Simon Says Stamp sentiment from some SSS Glitter Cardstock and glued it to the panel. I added a secondary sentiment that just worked with this fun card! 

To finish my card, I added some Pretty Pink Posh Jewels, white gel pen detail and some Glossy Accents to the sunglasses.
