Simon Says ,,,,, Lemon and Lavender

Hi all :-) Thanks for all your fabulous entries using Jane’s lovely sketch :-) Link

This week we have a nice easy colour theme for you to use ,,


As always Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 spree to her fabulous Simon Says Stamp Superstore !! My first port of call every morning after checking emails is to the ‘All New Just In section,,, there is invariably some new products in there that I NEED and have to add to my wish list !!

All the DT have used Penny Black stamps for this challenge, you don’t HAVE to but am sure you all have some so why not give one an inking !! Smile

For my card I used this gorgeous new Penny Black La Soiree stamp. I stamped the image with Memento Black ink onto Neenah card, I am so glad this is now available in store, perfect with Copics !! I coloured the image and cut her out using a Spellbinders Large Deckled Rectangle, cutting out the balloons first so that they could be slipped over the top of the die so they weren’t chopped off. I layered her bag and popped it up with pop dots for dimension, I then used my fave Star Dust stickles on her bodice and I squiggled a few lines with my copic multiliner to create a floor. The papers are from a Kaiser Craft Magic Happens pad. I made the 3 black pearls using Enamel Accents and brushed some of this onto her shoes too ,, they look like patent leather IRL !! I used a Martha Stewart Arch Lattice border punch, I tied a triple bow using a Bow Easy and added a Prima rose which I sprayed black using my Copic Air Brush. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

The DT have made some gorgeous creations for your inspiration so pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them Smile
