Simon Says: Add A Little Shimmer


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

Thank you for joining us for the Animal Magic Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

ADD SOME SHIMMER 

I think I was a magpie in a previous life because I have always been drawn to all that sparkles ;-)

We are showcasing Lindy's Gang 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. The lovely people at Lindy's Gang sent all of the DT a parcel of samples to use, thank you so much, we really appreciate them! THANK YOU

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





Photographing shimmer is notoriously difficult so you will just have to take my word for it, it is so shimmery it sends your eyes funny ;-)

I blended Tumbled Glass Ink over a piece of Watercolor Paper and then spritzed and splattered with the 3 sprays. I love the watery shimmer they created.

I used the pigment powders to colour the seahorse and I have to say I am so impressed with the depth of colour, a little definitely goes a long way!

I found some cheesecloth and sprayed that with shimmer spray and also used the pigment powders to add some extra shimmer to the sponge and seashells. 


I finished the inside too :-)



So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting 

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x
