First, a big thank you to everyone who joined us in the STAMPtember® blog hop last week and who commented on my post. I had fun reading all the comments. Today it is Monday again and a new challenge is up at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog - say it with stamps, use your sentiment, word or alphabet stamps.
I love sentiment stamps, especially small ones, which are so versatile and can be used on different types of projects over and over again. This week I was in the mood for a happy layout, and used many Simon Says Stamp Exclusive stamps and dies. The little Be Sentiments stamp set is awesome and so versatile. I used all the words included in the set, great words for scrapbooking, card making and art journaling. I also added some words from the Happy set.
The base of the layout is watercolour paper and I made a stencil from the fabulous Full Card Bubbles die. Embossing paste was smeared through the stencil with a palette knife, all around the layout. When the paste was dry, I painted with watercolours here and there.
Join us in our fun challenge this week and it can be you who wins a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp, randomly drawn, or is picked to be featured in our weekly spotlight post.
Thank you for looking!
