Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge # 299

wed-newchallenge-header  
Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the New Something Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)
This week the challenge is...

Guy Thing

 We are using Tim Holtz products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

I used 2014 Air Postage Stamp and Idea-ology Botanical Remnant Rub for my one layer card. You can see the actual stamp in my display.

 I started out with a thin piece of white copy paper and used the rectangle as a mask. Then I started stamping the postage airplanes (with more masking of the planes) with a variation of cool colors (Tide Pool, Navy Blue and Green Hills from Hero Arts ). Finally, I applied the rub onto the stamped images. For good measure, I added silver strings and then stapled it. No glitter, sequins were added
...you know, it's a guy thing!


As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

Wonderful 'Guy' card, Virginia! This challenge comes at the perfect time too - I've got a grandson turning 16 on Saturday, and have been stuck trying to make a card for him. Love the colors you've used here and they've inspired me for Ben's card! Thanks! Bev

Love that this one layer card has such a cool, collage-y look to it!! One layers are so important cuz they can be mailed out!! And I think men appreciate a more simple card with out all the fru - fru!! This is very nice and totally cool!!
