Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes

If you think anything goes challenges are easy but sometimes they are not, Simon Says Stamp design team are using Technique Tuesday products so I decided to dig in my stash and go threw Pinterest and find some ideas.

I found a card simaler to the one I made and decided to roll with it and use the supplies I have on hand.

Would you like to play along, CLICK HERE.

 I start with a Heavy Weight White card stock panel sized 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 that I will eventually trim down.

I am using some embossing paste and a stencil to create some wood grain texture.
 I am using a Heavy Weight Cream card stock sized 2 3/4 by 4 1/2.

I am only using Versa Mark ink and a linen back ground paper.

I will be using this as a resist with out adding the embossing powder.
 I start with Baked Brown Sugar ink and edge the out sides and work my way inside leaving it lighter on the inside.
 I then bring in a darker Soft Suede ink and sponge mainly on the edge barely getting to the center of the panel.
 Finally I go back in with my Baked Brown Sugar ink and blend it tell its nice and smooth.
 I am using my Hampton Art Stamp Perfect tool with a piece of scratch paper inside to protect the foam mat inside the tool.
 I am using a Technique Tuesday stamp set called Holiday Ornaments.
 Using the darker Soft Suede ink for the sentiment and a darker green color called Gumball Green for the fern image.

Here I added the bow and cleaned off the fern and added it again in a different spot.
 Cleaned the fern and added it again in a different section.
Using some wood paper I found at Hobby Lobby, I punched some stars out.

I lightly inked them in Baked Brown Sugar ink because the wood paper was a little too light.
 Because this panel is going onto the embossing paste background but I wanted some dimension I decided to also add some Liquid Tombow Mono glue to the dimension foam.
 I used a Hero Arts set to stamp the inside in the Soft Suede ink.

I also used the fern again in the same Gumball Green ink.
All finished, I added foam to the star in the center, flash on with my camera for this photo.

Close up, I trimmed the embossing paste panel down and used a 110 pound Cream card stock base and inked just the edges with Baked Brown Sugar ink.

No flash with this photo, I used Tombow Mono Liquid glue to adhere the embossing panel to the card base.
