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


This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


We are showcasing HERO ARTS 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 find Hero Art stamps so 'useable' and so different ways to use I can never stop and make one image. This challenge I ended up making three projects using the Hero Arts Silhouette Grass - the first one is use with blending randomly with Distress Inks over the image after embossed them - I also added the text ink (from an old Tim Holtz  stamped) - stamped again with the same inks. I added a Spellbinders Fancy Tag with a greeting from Simon Says Cupcake Party

The next card (they are all 'variations on a theme') I stamped the top right and bottom left on the card stamped with Hero Arts Leafy Vines to pull the image panel and card together. I added a Memory Box butterfly and a couple of old dragonflies I dug out of a box. The Simon Says stamp Thinking of You craft die are added on vellum. The colour of this card is stronger than IRL!!

The final card  is a tag/bookmark. The Ranger Silver Embossing Powder looked stunning but struggled yow to add it all together. Eventually I inked the Hero Arts Silhouette Grass with the Distress inks with blue as a background and then used the Silver embossing powder as a border - this was used a flourish with an old Magnolia New Year flourish. I backed the whole tag/bookmark with Simon Says Cardstock Blue Violet defore adding sine silver ribbon and Lawn Fawn Silver Twine.
I hadn't a clue what I was doing when I started out with this creations - it developed itself but I ended up loving it!!!
