Simon Says Easter/Spring with Glimmer Challenge

Another Wedneasday, another fabulous challenge on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge :-) This week we are doing something completely different ,,,

EASTER/SPRING with added glimmer

As you may have noticed there are a few with the same theme ,,, so plenty of opportunity to combine challenges ! The DT have all used Glimmer Mist on their creations and Heidi Swapp has made a fabulous video tutorial on them which you can see over on the challenge blog . It is well worth watching and if you have glimmer mists we would love to see them used this week ,, but it is not necessary to enter the challenge :-)

Gunn is joining us in the Designer Spotlight again this week, if you haven't visited her blog yet then you are in for treat !! You really should go to say 'hello' ! :-)

I just can't resist these cute Happy Hopper stamps ! I think these are THE perfect Easter stamps, that little chick telling bunny to hurry up ,,, sooo cute :-) This one is called Will Knit for Friends and is available in the Simon Says Stamp Store, all the Happy Hoppers, House Mouse and Gruffies are available !! :-)
I coloured the image with copics and glimmer mists. the shimmer looks really good on the chicks beaks and feet,, I used peach delight to colour those. The papers are Bo Bunny and I used a Martha Stewart border punch, The flower is Prima and has been sprayed with pearl glimmer mist. I love this one particularly and have almost used up the whole bottle, so definitely need to get a new one ! I also coloured the central flower and the edges with peach delight glimmer mist.

Heidi is giving away a $25 spree to the Simon Says Stamp Store and every day new products and new companies are being listed , they now have The Greeting Farm, C.C Designs, Nellie Snellen and many more !! Fabulous !! :-)
