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


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

As always at the end of each month, our theme is Anything Goes!  You can make anything you'd like!  My teamies and I are playing with Stampendous products this week.

Stampendous has a stamp series based on the art of Laurel Burch, and these stamps are so different from what I already have, that I wanted to try one of them.  If you like to color, you will love these!  This one's called Lion with Bird.   I added my own sentiment, one from a Simon set.

supplies: white card base, Bristol paper, strips of Simon Sunshine, Island Blue, Orange Peel, and Green Leaf cardstock, Stampendous Laurel Burch Lion with Bird, Spectrum Noir Essentials and Primaries colored pencils, sentiment from Simon's Wild Cuddly Critters, Die-Namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle die, Uniball white pen, adhesive foam squares

I tried coloring this image 3 times, once with alcohol markers, once with Zig markers, and lastly with colord pencils.  I chose that last option because I had more color choices that way, and could do a little bit of shading.  After stamping and coloring the image, I added in white dots where there were any in the design, then trimmed it out with a wonky stitched die.  The bird was stamped and colored a second time to pop him above the card, as was the flower, and I added some card stock strips as a border to pull the colors outward.

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


to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!

And don't forget about STAMPtember!

This is sooo cool! I thought this was a Laurel Burch when I saw it on the SSSWC page! I just purchased two of her stamps. They are fun and kind of out of my norm. I love how you colored this and popped up that fun bird! I love the stitched border! Great card!

Love the fun, bold colors you used with this image! I'm now humming the Lion King music (saw the musical in Richmond last was great!).
