Simon Says Stamp - Designer Spotlight Week 3

Hello Friends

The weeks are flying by, this is my third week in the Designer Spotlight with Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

A new week means a new challenge and the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week is 'Monochrome'.

I still had the stamps and die out on my desk from last week's celebration of STAMPtember® and it gave me an idea straight away for the Monochrome Challenge.  I created a monochrome journal as my project.

I used Eileen Hull's Wrapped Journal die for my base, cutting it in Black Mount Board before stamping with the beautiful STAMPtember® Flora Background stamp, and then embossing it in white embossing powder. 

I added some ribbon from my stash as a closure for the journal. 

For the inside I made four signatures and I used the STAMPtember® Shimmer Rounded Rectangle die set to add decoration to the front of the plain signatures.

 I handmade a black and white bead adornment to finish off my journal.

As always, if you join in the Monochrome challenge there is the chance of winning a Gift Voucher to Simon Says Stamp on line shop.

The products I used that are available from Simon Says Stamp are listed below.

Thanks so much for your visit, 
I hope to see you again soon.

Hugs, Anne xx
