Simon Says Anything Goes!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the Come Rain or Shine Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too!


This week the challenge is Anything Goes!

We are showcasing Ranger Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Here is my take on the challenge!

sending love

I have used the Distress Stain Weathered Wood  on the background by rubbing the stain directly on paper to get the brush strokes effect. Then I used Layering Stencil Speckle and white embossing paste to add white spatter with texture to the background. 
For the focal point, I have used Simon Says Stamp Clustered Leaves die to die cut the leaves using vellum cardstock. The flowers are from Tim Holtz called Garden Flower #4. I black heat embossed on watercoloured paper and coloured using Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry distress inks. I hand cut them out and clustered them on top of the leaves using foam adhesives. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Texting stamp set which I stamped in black ink, cut out and adhered using foam adhesives as well. I embellished using Pink Blush sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
