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 CLEARLY BESOTTED  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

I needed something cute but more masculine and I think this has worked perfectly, aren't those panda balloons adorable!! ;-)

I made a cloudy sky using a die cut cloud as a mask and then used a copic air brush, my fave and easiest way of creating a sky.

I rounded the balloons using an embossing tool, lubricated with a smidgeon of soap, and then gently rounded on the reverse side. 

and this is the inside view

Our GD,Vera,  will be once again hosting the annual Caring Hearts Card Drive and Simon Says Stamp will be sponsoring. The details of the drive will be posted on  Vera's Blog on Saturday 3rd October. Please pop by for more details of this very worthwhile cause.
