Simon Says ,,,,,, Domi's Sketch

Good Morning all :-) I hope you are all OK and for those of you in Australia my thoughts are with you and your Country. I know some of you are in Queensland and I justt hope you and your families are safe xxxx

We have some super exciting news on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge ,, we have the lovely Tara aka Inking on the Edge joining our family !! Welcome to the team :-) Please pop by her blog to say 'Hello' and leave some love :-)

This week we have a beautiful sketch done by our very own Domi! Also, this week, the Design Team is showcasing Crafters Companion stamps - Popcorn Bear & SWALK stamps!

This week, the prize is a WHOPPING $50 voucher from Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!! Whheeeeeehoooooo!!!!!! How exciting eh?? So, get out your stamps and start creating!!! We can't wait to see what you create!!!! Have a great week & good luck!

Domi's Fab sketch !! Lovely eh !! :-)

I love Crafters Companion stamps and the cute Popcorn Bear is especially adorable :-) I chose to use stamps from the Bundle of Joy set :-) ( I know a few girls who are expecting babies right now so maybe this will come in handy !! :-))

I coloured the image with Copics and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky Distress Ink I added my fave Star Dust Stickles here and there ( I wish they would make this in bigger bottles !! :-)) The papers are from a Bearly Mine CD ( which was sold in the store but is now out of stock :-( ,,, )

I stampeed the Cute and Cuddly sentiment, which is in the stamp set, with Brilliance ink so it didn't show up TOO much. The lace ribbon was a gift from America, thanks xx The flowers are Prima Esprit and Mini Roses, sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist and stickled. I also added a couple of Doodlebug brads on the wheels

I even made a matching box !!!! :-) This Martha Stewart Score Board is perfect to help make these boxes !!
