Simon Says Use Your Favorite Technique and/or Product


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

This week the challenge is


What is YOUR favorite technique ? Do you like to stencil, paper piece, splatter,watercolor and what is your favorite product ? Do you like sequins, twine, ribbons, charms, die cuts ? We would love to know a few of your favorite things !

We are showcasing RANGER 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

Favorite Technique, Paper Tearing. Favorite Products, Sequins,  Glitter I have always been fond of all things sparkly :-)

Heather is here with me on holiday at the moment and she brought a lovely Wallflower Vellum Paper Pack with her, so I just had to pinch a bit ;-)

This was the first card I made but when I saw how popular this Crazy Bird Stamp Set was this week I thought I should make another one too ;-)

I just love the expressions on these birds faces, aren't they CUTE! This card is already in the post for my brother, I hope he likes it ;-) In retrospect I wish I had stamped the string as if he was holding it in his beak better, maybe extending the string a bit, but it's too late now ;-)

I stamped the image and then masked before stencilling the spotty background. I haven't coloured on Kraft cardstock very often but I do love the effect you get with the pencils :-)

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
