Oh I’m delighted to be joining Neat & Tangled again today for the second post as their guest for this month :) I had such fun with N&T’s Stop and Go set for this card. The best bit for me was getting the stop signal masked off. You know when you lift up a mask and it’s worked; that ‘yes!’ moment can’t be beat LOL. I started by stamping and Copic colouring the image and then used stamping mask paper to cut a die cut heart using Simon Says Stamp’s Large Holiday Shapes. I then stamped the image on the masking paper and cut out the stop signal area. Placing the remaining mask around the stop signal and then the heart in the middle left me a great spot to set to with some Barn Door Distress Ink and a Mini Blending Tool. To finish the image I stamped the small ‘stop’ from the Stop and Go set :)
The sentiment is a combination of a silver glitter die cut ‘You‘ and more stamping using some of the great sentiment options from the set. The last touches were some die cut hearts (Holiday Shapes) and a few Doodlebug enamel dots. The panel is then mounted on a Slate card base – the colour really tones well with the metallic look of the stop signal :) And that was it, quite a bold graphic look in comparison to last week’s soft watercolours :D
I’ll be back in a lickety split with a look at the new Simon Says Stamp release!
