Something New! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon & a Happy New Year!

products on our cards this week.

On today's card I am featuring Hero Arts Florals Rose Clear Stamp which I have used to create my background. 

I've stamped the rose a few times onto watercolour paper using Simon Says Stamp embossing ink pad & heat embossed it using Hero Arts white detail embossing powder. Once set I ink blended Stormy Sky Distress Ink over the background & then die cut a Stitched Circle from it ensuring it was large enough for my image to show through.

The thing I have missed the most about card making since having to take time out is colourings so I challenged myself to complete colouring an image with my copics for this week so that's another goal ticked off my list. To make it easier for myself I chose this cute & new to me Stamping Bella image called Bundle Girl With Snowdrops as it's fairly small & looked straightforward to colour.

I chose a congratulations sentiment for my card as I thought it would be perfect for a friend who is starting a new job.

It's been such a long time since I posted here or even created a card as my health took a big hit in September which has taken me a while to recover from.
