Simon Says..... Anything Goes


Welcome to our last challenge of the month at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

It's Anything Goes this week, and the Design Team are using Penny Black products this week.  I made you 2 very different cards.

SSS July 29

supplies: Penny Black Collage of Wishes, colored in Spectrum Aqua markers and water on Bristol paper

Penny Black does a nice variety of these collage-type stamps, and this is one of their newer ones.  It has a selection of 4 different sentiments that can be stamped into the banner.  I simply watercolored it and stamped and cut out an extra large rose and a butterfly, and popped them above the main design after my card was assembled.

My next card uses some Penny Black stamps, a die, and some papers:

SSS July29

supplies: Penny Black Indian Wheel background, stamped in Simon's Hydrangea ink, Purple Mountain papers, sentiment from Friendship clear stamp set, and Iris die, green cardstock for it's leaves, purple sequins

I stamped my background for this one, and trimmed out a panel, then inset the iris into it.  The sentiment comes from a set with fun fonts and sayings.

Now it's your turn!  We have a $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store for one lucky random winner of our challenge!
