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


Welcome to our last challenge of 2016 at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

As always our theme at the end of each month is our ever-popular Anything Goes!  My teamies and I are playing with products from Lindy's Stamp Gang.

I used my Magicals powders as watercolors this time, and colored a pretty thank you card.

SSS Dec 28

supplies: white cardstock card base, Tim Holtz watercolor panel, Wplus9 Beautiful Bouquets: Ranunculus clear stamp, Lindy's Gang Mermaid Seashells Magicals, tumbled glass distress ink, water.

I used a little palette and dropped the tiniest amount of each Magical color into each well, added some water, and painted this pretty image.  A tip I learned is to stir the mixture each time you dip into it, as the mica tends to settle to the bottom.  All of the colors have a golden glitz to them.  When everything was dry I washed some tumbled glass behind it, cut it into a scalloped panel, and mounted it on my card front.  Here's a closer picture to show you the glow:
