Simon Says: Stencil It!


Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week the theme is

STENCIL IT 

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Please pop by to see what our super talented guest Alison and the DT have made! Awesome Sauce! 

I started with some Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and then used Tim Holtz CargoFloral and Dot Fade Layering Stencils along with Distress Inks and White Embossing Paste to create the background


I  featured the new Simon's Exclusive 'Stitching Butterflies' Die Set as the focus of the card. I have to say these are my most fave butterflies EVER! ;-)


 

aren't they pretty 🦋

I finished the inside but didn't add a sentiment as I am not sure what I will use this for ;-)




Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

This background is AMAZING, Lols. I had to come by and see just how you did it. Great use of LOTS of fabulous SSS products, and VERY inspiring. Thanks for sharing your talents. I always enjoy seeing your amazing handiwork. I have a personal blog and a challenge blog, and I'd be honored to have you stop by either (or better yet, both).
Blessings,

Lols! These colors are off the charts! They look so...yummy and fresh and soft and energetic all at the same time. I love the way you used those dots in the background and the subtle alphabet letters are spot-on. This is a very special card and I loved how all the elements came together!
