Simon Says: Anything Goes




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


Anything Goes 


I know that Anything Goes Challenges aren't for everyone, as the saying goes, you can't please everyone all of the time, but I do love them! I think they give us more freedom to make whatever we like and have fun with less restrictions. What do YOU think? please let me know in comments :-) 

This week we are showcasing Technique Tuesday Products. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them 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


This is Sonia's last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your gorgeous creations over the past few weeks. It has been so lovely to have you along with us!

I used a super cute Zsa Zsa Animal House Stamp Set. Don't you just love her funky spiral tummy and heavy sparkly eye shadowed eyelids! haha I really had fun making this ;-)


I coloured the owl with Zig real Brush Markers  LOVE THEM and I used an Aqua Shimmer Pen  to add a touch of sparkle to her eyeshadow. She makes me smile :-D 

Have you tried the new Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks? aren't they AWESOME!! I used  for the background and then used some white embossing paste and a stencil to add some texture before splattering with inks and a sprinkling of glitter. 


I was going to pop her onto a die cut branch but then thought she would look pretty cool popped onto a Ring Frame, in keeping with the circles theme ;-) 

and I finished the inside using a sentiment from the Zsa Zsa  stamp set and a little owl from a Fly By Owl Stamp Set . I have to say this little one is only $2.99!!! super cute BARGAIN!! 



So now it's YOUR turn to get out your crafty supplies and make whatever takes YOUR fancy!! :-)  

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