LIM..........................A Sketch ""

 The Less is More challenge this week is a Sketch.

I'm still struggling getting good photographs - I am trying different things in differnt places etc. - this time I popped into my weeping fig tree, it does look better more natural than the others I took so perhaps I should try this again but balanced better in the tree!!

A new MFT Stitched Fishtail Flag and my also new little Stampendous House Mouse Forget Me Nots coloured it with Copics and the papers are some older ones from K&Co.

Simon Says...............Have a Heart !!

The challenge this week is Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.............


We are showcasing GLITTER RITZ AND WINK OF STELLA 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

I was experimenting with the Zig Link of Stella Fine Glitter Pens with an image of Magnolia Swirly Tilda. I used Copics for colouring her face but used a Pentel Aquaush Brush to colour the dress and hair. I added the pen onto a Craft mat and used the brush to pick up the colour to add on the image. I liked the result and decided to use it.
Glitter Ritz White Opaque Microfine was used on the Simon Says Large Doily Heart die with 
Zig Link of Stella Fine Glitter Pens & White Glitter Brush Tip on the image and the Tim Holtz stencil which had been coloured with inks.


So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
Simon Says Stamp
