Simon Says ,,,, Triangles

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


this can be triangular shaped cards/creations, a triangular shaped element eg banner, or paper with a triangle embossed printed or masked design,,, we will look forward to seeing your interpretations :-)

We are showcasing The Crafters Workshop Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used :-)

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

This card is for a very special boy who will soon be celebrating his 5th birthday :-)

I used a Kelly Purkey ' Triangles' stencil and smooched some embossing paste over the top ( love this stuff, it has a lovely texture, almost like velvet ) then I waited for that to dry, then sprayed with Dylusions London Blue ink. I then removed the mask and sprayed again with Fresh Lime, it looks FAB in real life ! :-) I  'saved' the excess ink from the stencil by laying a piece of card over the top and I used it for the inside. 

The balloons were cut on the Silhouette Cameo

thanks for looking :-) We have a new Designer in the Spotlight for August, the one and only Debby Hughes :-) If you haven't seen her blog then you are in for a real treat ! she is FAB :-)
