Simon Says.........All Things Bright & Beautiful !!

wed-newchallenge-header

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is

ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL

We would like to see nice cheerful bright colors after the long gray days of winter.
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

Oh this was a hard challenge - I have so many Hero Arts stamps I wanted to use them all - I settled with two of them.
The first one by Hero Arts Leavy Vine Clear StampThree Artistic Butterflies & Says It All sentiment and decided to Simon Says Cardstock Mint to stamp the image with ColorBox Frost White ink and heat embossed. The white butterflies were created the same
and then coloured with Derwent Intense Metallic Pencils and then brushed them with Ranger Perfect Pearls


This one was used by the Hero Arts Large Flower Pattern and decided to experiment with Gelatos. I added the Gelatos directly to the stamp, blended them and the spritzed before stamping and this is the result - I like it!!! The remainder was used as previously.




So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

These cards are stunning! I love the white on mint for the leafy vine stamp with the metallic butterflies. And what an awesome result from the gelatos! Never tried those before, but your card inspires me! Might need to look into getting some :)

Hellooooo there Heather. Thank you for visiting me recently. I have been so neglectful of my blog buddies and I thought I would drop by today for a snoop. I didn't know you had moved again or that you had broken your arm which means it has been a very long time since I was last here. These two Hero Arts creations are delightful! Your gelato stamping of the big floral background is particularly pretty and I love your blues and white embossing of the first card. Take care!!! Hugs, Lesley
