Hello! Today I have another card to share that uses the September Simon Says Stamp card kit. I love the unexpected things that get added into these kits... they really inspire me to get creative and try new things.
This months kit came with white gesso, a palette knife and a stencil. These products would all work great together, but I decided to just use the gesso as a paint to colour in my stamped balloon images.
I first stamped the sentiments and all of the balloons with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. This helps to ensure that painting with the gesso doesn't smear the ink.
Once all the stamping was done, I mixed gesso with some water and three different Simon Says Stamp ink colours (Scuba, Audrey Blue and Coral Reef) and then I painted inside each of the balloons. I didn't want them to be perfect... I was going for a more relaxed whimsical look.
I completed the card by adding clear sequins (and silver stickles) all over the card front. ;)
