Simon Says: Fabulous Florals


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

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

This week the challenge is

Fabulous Florals  

We are showcasing Hero Arts 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

We are welcoming Agata Pfister aka Under Construction into the Designer Spotlight this month. If you haven't visited Agata's blog then you are in for a real treat!

I made a set of 4 CAS cards to share today using Color Layering Happy Day Flowers Clear Stamp Set



I love the dandelion type stamp in this set, so delicate and pretty and perfect for CAS design cards or for creating beautiful backgrounds too.


 These are pretty self explanatory but I stamped the soft shades of the pigment inks first and then overstamped with the more vibrant die inks, this gives a lovely depth of color I think.


I could have gone on all day making these in a variety of colours but I ran out of time, I do intent to keep going though until I have used the whole set of the Hero Arts Pastel Pigment Ink Pads, the colours are so creamy and yummy!


I actually made these, intending to use them for the inside of the card, but thought they looked great as a card in their own right. I didn't clean the stamp properly, can you see the hint of yellow in there? that was deliberate ;-) haha




So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

This is one STUNNING group of cards, and I just HAD to check out the Hero Arts stamp set. These are wonderful!!! They made me take a second look, I was SO impressed with them, and need to look at Hero Arts pigment ink too. I've tried a couple of HA monthly hero kits--a floral one and a thank you, perhaps I'll play with those flower stamps and dies... I'd love to try a challenge, something I haven't done yet... These cards are so very beautiful and distinctive, FANTASTIC!!! I look forward to looking at more on your blog. You are one talented artist!!!

Best wishes,

Joanne
