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 CLEARLY BESOTTED  AND LIL' INKER DESIGNS  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. 
There are so many new products from the CHA landing on the Simon Says Stamp shelves  !! have you seen them ?  I feel a spree coming on !! It's my birthday in a couple of months     close enough don't ya think ?! ;-)

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store, and there is no better time to win this than RIGHT NOW !!

I coloured the flower with Intense Pencils and then used a damp brush to smooth out the lines and create a watercolour effect. I love the way it turned out but I do need more practice with shading. Not bad for a first effort though eh ?  I used a couple of spritzers to spray and splatter the background,   love this effect, so delicate and pretty :-)

I am just about to get packed and set off for the airport. I am going home, back to the UK, for a couple of weeks so I will see you all when I get back, in the meantime, Happy Crafting !! :-)

You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in

Challenges :
Shopping Our Stash       Love Me Do
Through the Purple Haze     Love is in the Air

Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x
