Simon Says 'Clean and Simple' Challenge


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Before moving on to the challenge did you know that  Simon Says Stamp has a new website ? Check It Out !


Thank you for joining us for our Animal Antics Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

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


with the optional extra to use one layer

We are showcasing Hero Arts Products  this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I  made 2 cards to share today, this first one uses the One Layer Option and for this I used a Hero Arts Dauber Bunch Stamp Set Pastel Pink and Pastel Yellow Ink Daubers 

A very quick and easy card and perfect to make in a batch, tie with a pretty ribbon and make into a little gift :-) I am going to make my Mum a pile of these, with differing sentiments as she was hinting a few days ago that she needs some ;-)

I stamped the background and clear embossed onto watercolour paper, I then used Simon's exclusive  inks, then ironed off the embossing to leave the white design before spraying and splattering with Dylusions White Ink.
I then die cut the spring branch out of the background and replaced with a plain white die cut one :-) I also die cut the 'thanks' out of the coloured card and replaced with a white one too. I popped some black card behind the sentiment to add definition. 

So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!

Both cards are beautiful in their simplicity. The colours are lovele and the white provides wonderful contrast. The raindrop pattern is very cute. Might be a "must-have" Thanks for playing along with our Pretty Pastels challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon.
