There is something about a small, scripty die that I like.  I think because it is small and not in your face, it makes a more sophisticated statement.

The card I am sharing with you today was designed around a small script die, the “Bravo” die by @simonsaysstamp.  I like how thin the font is, that it’s all in lower case and the overall size of the word.

Bravo and Strangeness

I also used the Strangeness stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  I used the single flowers from this set.  I stamped the flowers on Canson XL watercolor cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder.  I colored the flowers with my Tombows and a waterbrush.

For the background, I used the Gingham Background stamp.  It is the perfect size pattern!  It adds a little pizazz, but doesn’t take over the card.  For a small accent, I used the thin border from the Frames die set.  Both of these items are from Simon Says Stamp.

Gingham Background and Frames die set

As I said before, I colored the flowers using my Tombow markers.  I used 526, 676, 725, 985 and 055.  I just scribbled on the flower and moved the colored around with my waterbrush.


I stamped the background stamp with Versamark ink and used WOW white embossing powder.  I used Bundled Sage Distress Oxide and didn’t like it with my floral colors, so I lightly went over it with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide and liked it much better.  I cut a thin frame out of the background and used a scrap piece of white cardstock and cut a thin frame out of it as well.

I adhered both parts of the gingham background and the thin, white frame and adhered it to a white card base.  I cut my bravo sentiment out twice from white cardstock and adhered it together using Glossy Accents.  I then put a layer of Glossy Accents over the top of my sentiment.  I arranged my flowers on the card base and attached with my ATG Gun and Pop Dots.

I have really been enjoying the Simon Says Stamp releases of late.  They are right up my alley!

Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate it.
