"A is for..." A Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Sunday, April 5, 2015

It's another alphabet challenge! This week we are inspired by the letter "A" for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I thought of "Air Mail."

I made some funky postcards with some of the new Prima Stamps. I love the fresh new designs as well as the fact that they are reasonably priced. Only $4.99 each! I applied watercolors directly to the stamp and stamped with them instead of inks. This is a method that is not for the faint of heart. You never know how it's going to turn out.

What does "A" inspire you to create? Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.

  11. These look great and just wouldn't be the same if you hadn't used watercolor stamping. The purity of the colors against the white background is powerful.

  17. Every time I see your mail art, I wish that you would come and take over my local post office. The mail would be so much prettier!!! You really do have a knack for this niche of art and I love to see the clever new ways you can make an envelope or a postage stamp or a postcard look incredible!
