Simon Says ,,,,,, EMBOSS IT !! :-)

Good Morning all :-) I hope you are all OK and looking forward to a nice Easter weekend :-)

We have some fabby news this week !! Marcea has agreed to re joiin the team !! Woo Hoo !! Welcome back me darlin xx

This week the theme on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge is

EMBOSS IT ,,, so wet or dry embossing is OK :-)

The DT have been using stamps from Belles 'n Whistles this week :-) such cute images ! You don't HAVE to use them but if you have any we would love to see them :-)

For my card I used this very cute Goggles image from Belles n Whistles. I cut the towel out so that I wouldn’t chop it off in my Big Shot. I then used a nestie circle shape , I coloured the image with Copics and added Glossy Accents to his goggles masked him and then sprayed the background using my copic air brush. I then added a sandcastle , which was decoupaged, this was from a Simon Says stamp Exclusives set. I thought he needed something to look at ! Is he wondering if it needs an extra flag ?? or should he dig a moat around it ?? ,,, ooh decisions, decisions ,, such a hard day at the beach !! Smile

The papers are Basic Grey from the Hopscotch paper pad ( did I mention I LOVE these ,, I am going to get another one, I don’t want to run out !! ) I embossed a piece of plain white card using a Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles folder. I then gently inked this with Stormy Sky distress ink using a Tim Holtz Blending Tool, then dabbed Star Dust Stickles on the bubbles. The ribbon was in my stash, the button is also from Basic Grey and the twine is from American Tag
