Simon Says: 'Splash' on the Monday Challenge

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

This week we are challenging you to

Splash It On 

incorporate water into your project. It can be an image of water, or water colouring, or splashing water onto your creation. We will be looking forward to seeing what you make
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Please pop by Amy's Blog to see her fabulous creation and leave her a lovely comment ;-)

I used a new Tim Holtz Flower Jar Stamp Set and some new Oxide Ink Pads for the background, which give a lovely chalky effect when splashed with liquid. 

I started by blending some Faded Jeans and Broken China Oxide Inks over Watercolor Paper and then used  a new Leafy Stencil and Wilted Violet Oxide Ink over the top for the lower half and I used the same stencil with embossing paste for the top right hand side.

I also made a tag for a bouquet of flowers.

I am currently at the Simon HQ helping to get ready for the CREATE event! Woo Hoo!! If you will be there please pop by to say 'hello' I would love to meet you :-)

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #sssmchallenge so we can see your entries there too

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


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

Great to see this stamp set in action--it has a lot going for it, great bunches of flowers and so many options for the jars. I'm partial to the tag :) and the lovely purple with perfect color accents.

Love your card and tag, Lols! The jar image is perfect, and looks awesome filled with flowers. Lovely background too, and the washi adds a great touch! Have a super time at Create! hugs, Maura
