Simon Says Anything Goes


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is


We are showcasing  Spectrum Noir Products this week and they very kindly provided the Design Team with some of the new Aqua Markers to use and we have to say, we all really loved using them. If you have any  Spectrum Noir Products we would love to see them used but it isn't necessary for the challenge, you can still join in without them. 

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

AND Spectum Noir will also  be giving away an Aqua Markers set of the winners choice to one lucky winner !


I made 2 cards this week, for this first one I used Simon's March Card Kit  and used the pens for a direct to stamp technique.

I coloured the flowers with the Spectrum Noir Aqua markers  I used the Floral and Essential sets. 

For my next one I used a Mama Elephant Up and Away stamp and coordinating die set. For this one I watercoloured the images, lovely colours aren't they, these pens really are fabulous, lovely brush and fine detail nibs, excellent quality :-) 

I even finished the inside on this one ;-)

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
