Simon Says ,,,,, Ice Inspiration


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

This week the challenge is


The lovely Laura has made this gorgeous mood board for us to use
We are showcasing Glitter Ritz and Distress Glitter  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 used the middle top piccy for my inspiration and used  Stormy Sky Distress Glitter and Glitter Ritz Opaque White and Stardust  :-)

This week on the Splitcoaststampers website our old teamie Joy Taylor is the featured stamper and I chose THIS card to CASE to join in with the challenge :-)

I had great fun making this ! after stamping the image with Stormy Sky Distress Ink I picked up some wet white acrylic paint on a brush and splattered it EVERYWHERE !! oops ,, my laptop got a good spray too :-/ I couldn't find any suilable DP to use for the background so I continued the theme, inked up some plain white paper and splattered some more :-)

I really love how this turned out and think this might become a model for mass production :-) The colours on this 2nd photo are more true to life :-)

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