Simon Says ,,,, Anything Goes


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

This week the challenge is ...


We are showcasing Cas-ual Fridays and Technique Tuesday Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them. 

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

I love this stamp set ! the flower is gorgeous and it also has several lovely sentiments too.  I made the background using some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, White Embossing Paste and a Tim Holtz stencil. I love that the distress ink seeps into the paste without you having to pre colour it, you don't waste any paste this way :-)

I masked the flowers and used the strip of small sentiments and a Fog Ink Pad to make the background on the tag,

I decorated the inside and used a sentiment from the stamp set. Now who shall I send this one to  ,, hmmm :-)

OOh, I just made another one this morning using the same stamps and watercoloured with Gelatos

hopefully the best is yet to come after I have had a few watercolouring lessons from Amy.. haha  :-)

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

There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog , if you haven't subscribed by email you may want to so you don't miss out
