Simon Says …… Joy’s ’WOW’ Photo Inspiration

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Have a Heart Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


Isn’t that GORGEOUS !!! it really is WOW in more ways than one !! :-)

As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
We are showcasing Cuttlebug Products this week, you don't have to use them, but if you have them we would love to see them  :-)

I was inspired by the beautiful blossom flowers on the top right and the owl, bottom left. I didn’t use and owl, but I did add a cute little bird :-)

To be honest I wasn’t sure what I was going to make when I sat down to make this. Then I thought that this fab Memory BoxHoneyblossom Sprig die resembled those flowers ,,, and a card was born :-)

I used plain White Neenah  card and some of the fab woodgrain card to make this. I die cut the flowers out of card and paper and then meticulously masked all the flowers and buds before spraying with copic W2 ink to darken the stems. I used a Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder  for the panel, using the woodgrain card, and then inked all the edges with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. I used pop dots to adhere the flowers and popped a little twine bow on the stem. I coloured a little Studio Calico Wood Veneer Bird using a white Galaxy Marker and added an eye with a copic multiliner pen. 

Arty Angle :-)

Close Up 

The sentiment is from Hero Arts, stamped using Wet Cement Ink and I added a die cut Simon Exclusives  ‘You’ to finish
