Simon Says: Anything Goes!











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

This week the challenge is

ANYTHING GOES

We are showcasing Art Impressions 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





As you may know I do have several cats ( 7 actually, plus one who thinks he lives here and pops round at meal times ;-))
Tom Cat is particularly naughty and climbs up on the gazebo and pops his head through the light fixture at the top, so this card is modelled on him ;-)

I started by blending Pumice Stone Ink over a watercolor card base, I then used Fired Brick to ink the brick background stamp. The image was coloured with Hickory Smoke and Squeezed Lemonade inks. I used an embossing tool to shape the image so it is quite rounded, I filled it with Helmar Scrap Dots, which is a fabulous silicone glue and perfect for the job ;-)
Before popping into the envelope I will twist the image several times so that when the recipient opens the card the cat will twirl haha. FUN!! :-D





So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
