Simon Says Stamp | Abstract Wavy Circles

Simon Says Stamp | Abstract Wavy Circles

I had some time to play in my craft room and I finally stamped a card with Simon Says Stamp Wavy Circles background. This stamp has intrigued me for a long time and I had it sitting on my desk for weeks, waiting for a unique idea.

CARD DETAILS

The easiest way for me to come up with a card design is to start playing. After stamping this background using various colors of ink and various masking approaches I did the most simple thing possible – I used yellow and blue and combined them to create an abstract sea & sky background.

I used my MISTI and stamped the top part of the background in Citrine. Next, I overlapped it with Seafoam slightly creating a hind of green. I continued the blue to the bottom of the background using Surf and Ocean colors. The transition between colors isn’t perfect and I didn’t aim for perfection. I aimed for abstraction. I think it is spot on.

The sentiment I picked for this card is very meaningful, it reads “Dream Higher Than The Sky and Deeper Than The Ocean“. I think it is a beautiful message for so many occasions and especially for how I feel right now with the war outside my window. I dream of peace. Instead of embossing it on the usual black cardstock, I embossed it on Sunshine Yellow. I think this made the card a lot more cheerful.

I stamped seagulls in Versafine Onyx Black using images from Your Light and Seas & Greetings sets to continue the sea theme. Finally, I scattered some silver gems.

    1. What a gorgeous card! I love the abstract design, and how your amazing creativity enabled you to stamp a sea and sky scape out of circles. You’ve been finding such beautiful messages to include on your art, too, which is so uplifting. You inspire me everyday, dear Yana. I’m so happy to hear from you today and to know you and Oles are safe. It made my heart smile to know that you were able to have friends over for dinner. Sending you so much strength and love!
