Simon Says........Anything Goes!

wed-newchallenge-header

It's the end of the month, and that means it's an Anything Goes challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

This week the Design Team are playing with one of my favorite companies, Hero Arts!  We'd love to see you using their products on your creations this week, too, but it's not a necessity to enter our challenge.

My first card uses this beautiful Sunshine Daisies set.


I used distress inks (ripe persimmon, worn lipstick, spiced marmalade and peeled paint) to ink my stamp, then spritzed it with water and stamped on watercolor paper.  After stamping my flowers, I smooshed some inks on an acrylic block, mixed them with water, then picked them up with a paint brush and splattered them across my panel.  The sentiment is also from the set, and I added a few sequins and a twine bow.

My second card uses a mix of lots of Hero Art wood blocks, a cling, and some clears.


supplies: Simple Leaf Background, stamped on rust cardstock with barn door distress ink, Big Post Card, kraft cardstock, Season of Giving (leaves), Happy Thanksgiving (sentiment), Tall Pumpkin, Traditional Pumpkin, BoBunny Very Vintage dotted papers, cream trim from a friend


Now it's your turn!  We have a $50.00 gift voucher

Both of these cards are gorgeous, Lin. The first one has a very painterly feel, and that second one has such a country living feel. Blessings!
