Simon Says........Christmas Critters


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

Our theme this week is Christmas Critters, and the Design Team are using Stampendous products.  

SSS Nov 16

supplies: Bristol paper, watercolor paper, white glitter cardstock, Stampendous Winter Birds cling stamp, distress inks to watercolor, glue pen, Hero Arts Prisma glitter, Taylored Expressions Winter Flurry embossing folder and salty ocean distress ink, Tim Holtz Holiday Words: Script dies, adhesive foam squares

I stamped my birds, watercolored them with distress inks and water, then cut them out.  Then I used a glue pen to make my glitter stick to the snowy parts of the image.  Next I smeared salty ocean ink over one side of my embossing folder, spritzed it lightly with water, inserted some watercolor paper, and then embossed it as usual.  While everything was drying I cut out my sentiment from white glitter cardstock.  

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