Simon Says: Spring and/or Easter

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

This week Simon Says: Spring and/or Easter and we are featuring Spellbinders or Stampendous products - 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 $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!     

My Wednesday Challenge teammate and amazing designer Barbara Tarayao has done this technique of inking the embossing folder to offset the background color. I loved the effect so much that I wanted to try it.

There was a lot of trial and error, I found the only inks that worked beautifully were the Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated inks. I tried a multitude of other inks and the effects just were not the same. I also think the mid-tone color is best for the effect I was going for. 

I started by embossing all three of my panels with the ink on the inside of the folder.
I then cut them with my trimmer for the angled panel, I have not done this in a while and I always love the look of this. I then die cut my Whirl Leaves and my sentiments in coordinating colors and added them to the panel using foam tape.

To finish off, some of my favorite Pink Fresh drops!
