Simon Says Wednesday 'Something New' Challenge


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

Thank you for joining us for the Party Challenge and we would like to wish you a Very Happy New Year!

This week the challenge is


We are showcasing Wplus9 Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in with the challenge, but if you have them 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 a  'new' Wplus9 Going Places Clear Stamp set and I am heading for 'New Horizons' ;-)

I made this while thinking about Sean and Amy, they  have both flown the nest and are making new lives for themselves in far away countries. On the one hand I am sad to see them go, on the other I am so proud of them and their achievements and I know that they will both do well. 

I stamped the image and then created a cloudy sky using a cloud mask a copic B41 and a Copic Air Brush. I paper pieced the balloon and the basket and coloured the little bear in with copic markers E30, E31, E34 R20. 

The little bear needed to be waving at something, so I used a little  Cat from memory Box, having 7 cats myself I thought it worked quite well :-)

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting


If you use instagram add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too!

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