Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #434


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the "For a Child" Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

"Add a Sentiment"

 We are using "Impression Obsession" products 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 am using "Dream In" cling stamp. I decided to create a color swatch with Distress Oxide. It really is easy to do if you line up all the colros that you want. 

dream in colors that don't exist  

 First I did some color-blending and then I let the colors "sit"....meaning that I let the paper dry completely. This is a crucial part especially I wanted to do white-embossing on the paper.

After embossing,  I went back and splashed a few tiny drops of water....that's it!
This is a great way to customize your own color palette.
What do you think? Hope you can join this fun challenge!
