Simon Says ,,,, Use Watercolors


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the  Transport It Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

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

there are so many options for this challenge, you can use watercolor paints, pencils, crayons, gelatos, distress inks, whatever you can think of. You can create backgrounds, color stamped images or die cuts, or color a stamp, spritz with water and use the direct to paper technique. The possibilities are endless and we are looking forward to seeing what you all create !

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
I absolutely LOVE this watercolor set ! It isn't the cheapest set on the market, and with good reason, the quality is brilliant. You only need a tiny amount and the density of colour is fabulous !  I know this set will last me forever !! :-)

As it is October and THE month for raising breast cancer awareness I have made this card !

I used a Simon's Exclusive 'You Support Me' Stamp and Die Set and a Borders and Frames  Die Set. 

For the background I followed a fab tutorial by Dawn Woleslagle for Wplus9  to create a Bokeh effect, I love how it turned out :-)

and don't we all love a glittery bra !! 

Now girls,, the next time you are in the shower don't forget to have a good feel of your boobs and check for any lumps. If you are due for a Mammogram, make sure you make that appointment, and while we are talking health issues, when was your last smear test ? ,,,,, :-) 

So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!

There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog , if you haven't subscribed by email you may want to so you don't miss out
