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

It's time for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog!


And being the last Wednesday of the month, our theme is your favorite Anything Goes!  My teamies and I are using products made by Avery Elle this week.

SSS May 27

supplies: Avery Elle Brushed and Simply Said Hello stamp sets, Ranger Lemon Twist, Pink Gumball, and Cheese Puff dye inks, VersaFine Onyx Black ink, various sequins

I used just the 3 inks shown above, getting these citrus shades by cross-contamination, and double-stamping of them.  I really like the clear bright colors!

I used a longer brush stroke from the Brushed set and 3 mint to aqua inks as a background for my next card.  That idea came from a card by Yainea:

SSS May27

supplies: Avery Elle Brushed, Petals & Stems, and Oh Happy Day stamp sets, Hero Arts Splash, Tide Pool, and Mint Julep inks for background, and Ranger Lemon Twist, Cheese Puff, and Electric Lime inks for flowers and leaves, moonshine sequins

I stamped the flowers, mixing some of the inks as I did above, then fussy cut them out and made an arrangement that was popped above the background.

Now it's your turn!  As always, we have a $50.00 gift voucher

for the random winner of our challenge, and she can spend it for her heart's desire at our fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!!
