Simon Says...............Anything Goes with Twine or String!!!


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the  Emboss It Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)
We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the  $50 Voucher !! :-)
This week the challenge is


We are showcasing  Mama Elephant 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!

Having been away I was short of time to create a card for this week - I know what I wanted to do - it wouldn't go and ended up with two of the  Mama Elephant So Breezy images so  used one for the inner of the card - below.  I would like to use water paints to create the scene to use the images - one day!!!
Once I had made the card and photographed it I realized I should have used Twine - what a Dumbo!!!  Without starting from fresh I managed to life the top black sentiment and added some Hemptique Black Twine, tied a bow and added a couple of two beads to the bow - it hardly shows but at least the twine is there!!!.

I love the scene you've created in silhouette form with just a touch of pale contrasting colors! It's beautiful both inside and out, and I never would have thought to make the grass "black" in keeping with the silhouette look, but I love it!

Linda said...

Fab card Heather, love how the design continues outside the die cut. xx

Sandy said...

Wonderful inside and out!!! Love the silhouette images and colour scheme.
Thanks for sharing with us at Make It Monday this week.

I love seeing how you use the tree and landscape dies to make such different designs. They make up a beautiful scene for the silhouette child with kite. I find it really beautiful!
I also think you amaze a lovely card with the LIM sketch as inspiration, another beautiful silhouette and love how the image extends out of the circle.
