Time for a new challenge on Simon Says Stamps Challenge
There was only choice of stamp when I saw this weeks challenge and I know it really about the 4 July in the US but for us here in the UK means the Union Jack and that meant the Penny Black Miniful.
Now you probably know I love MFT dies but they also do the gorgeous Pure Innocence stamps too but I decided that Chevrons Stripes die was perfect for my road for my mini.
The papers I had decided to use were Doodlebug Stars and Stripes but I ended up just using one sheet for behind my flat bottom clouds from Simon Says Stamp Exclusive dies.
The only way I could make the clouds pop was to use a white background but they still seemed lost. Recently I saw on one of my favourite blogs had faux stitched round clouds so I hoped it would work on my flat bottom ones. Then the chervons looked odd so I did a bit of doodling on them too.
I'm still not happy and I want to faux stitch round the edge in hope to bring it together but another part of me says that it would be a faux stitch too much.
My sentiment is Penny Black too, getting to be a dab hand at using a stamp a ma jig.
