Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #330


wed-newchallenge-header 

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Food and/or Drink Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

Back to School

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

For my project, I used My Mind's Eye Metallic Enamel Shape (the arrow and star). The paper is also from MME ( Follow Your Heart). . 
SOAR
I also dressed up the pattern paper with two stencils: Simon Says Stamp "Kite" and "Tiny Dot" Stencil. I first started with the outlines of the kite. Then I masked the area off around the kite and applied silver embossing paste with Tiny Dot stencil. I then added the sentiment from Game Tile and created the sentiment to go with the kite theme. The white dotty details were from Pico Embellisher. It's so easy to add a few droplets of white for extra interest.  I think this is an awesome card to encourage students going back to school.  
 
As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

This is a terrific idea for the challenge. Who doesn't want their children to "soar". The dots on the kite are awesome as are the details you embellished with. Doesn't someone have an embellishment challege currently going on???? Hmmmm.
