Simon Says: Emboss It on the Wednesday Challenge

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

This week we are challenging you to
Emboss It 
Whether you choose to heat or dry emboss or you might like to emboss with paste or use an embossing tool. Whichever technique you choose to use we will be looking forward to seeing your creations!

This week we are showcasing WOW Products. You don't have to use them for 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

Please pop by to see what our lovely guest Vera  has made and to say 'Hi' :-)

As soon as I saw the Wall Art Clear Stamp Set I knew that I had to have it! I love that you can create all sorts of awesome graffiti to make a fabulous background! :-)

I used a Misti Tool to align the wall stamp and inked with Fog ink. I then randomly used Schoolhouse Red and Black inks to add graffiti before heat embossing the paint drips with Atlantic Seaspray Embossing Powder. It has a lovely aqua colour with specks of gold, very pretty IRL. 

 For the butterfly I used white pigment ink and Bonding Powder, this is such a fabulous product, much easier that brushing glue over the area. Once that is heated it  is very sticky. I then sprinkled and All That Jazz and Seahorse Glitter Sparkles to give the butterfly a 2 tone grungy look. It is so super sparkly IRL. 

 And I finished the inside.

My daughter, Amy, arrived hone yesterday after her year in Aberdeen university. We are so proud of her, not only did she win a very prestigious award (Rob Hunter) while she was there she got all 'A's for her final exams! CLICK HERE to see her in the newspaper!! ;-)


I made this card for her and popped in a little cash so she can treat herself to something pretty ;-)

So now it's YOUR turn to dig out your embossing supplies and join in!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please 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
