Simon Says.........Let's Go Wild!

wed-newchallenge-header


Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!




This week our theme is "Let's Go Wild!", and the Design Team are all playing with Wplus9 products.  You don't have to use them to play with us, but if you have some, we'd love to see them being used.

Here's my first card:

SSS Aug 10

supplies: white card stock base, Bristol paper, Wplus9 Party Animal set, Spectrum Aqua markers and water to color, smooshed salty ocean and mowed lawn distress inks for background, Simon's Stitched Rectangle die

First I smooshed my background, using some brighter distress inks, and when it was dry, I trimmed it using the Stitched Rectangle die and stamped my sentiment.  Next I stamped and watercolored the animals and birds, cut them out, and then glued them to my background.

Here's another one, using "wild" flowers, aka Doodle Buds:

supplies: Bristol paper, Wplus9 Doodle Buds and bird from Party Animal, Spectrum Aqua markers and water, tumbled glass distress ink and finger dauber to shade background, Simon Stitched Rectangle die

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you create!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher

  1. Oh, Lin, what an adorable card with these giraffes! I have this set and need to pull it out! I love them and love your watercolor background. And I also love the watercoloring for your flowers too (another one I need to "break out" and use - hehe!). Hugs, sweet friend!

  4. Lin, that first card is so cute I don't even have words. Besides maybe squeeeee! Adorable! And I like the twist on the "wild" theme that you've got going on in the second card.
