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

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
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 have used the Glittering Flakes before and made such an unbelievable mess -  so decided these were not for me!!!  I don't let been beaten so I decided to try again - I did make much less miss this time but still have the flakes everywhere - the silly cat end up covered with flakes - I was going to photo him but her hid under the bed and refused to come out, sulking!!!
I got carried away with myself and added a few extra cards below.
The design is Hero Arts Design Block Large and used the Indigo-blu Flitter Glu before added the Indigoblu  Mega Flakes Gin & Tonic - I think I should try one of the bronze coloured Indigoblu  coloured bext.  I coloured the Magnolia flowers with Prima coloured pencils before I made a frame and sentiment with Simon Says cardstock Blue Violet.

I enjoyed 'playing' the the Glitter Flakes so much I kept going and here are a could of these.

 These are all from Hero Arts stamps - listed apart from the Scroll Tree which is noloinger available. These have photohraphed much better - probably it is not raining, it's brighter and lighter to day. I did think the darker Glitter would work better on darker background but the lighter one is super - now I shall have to try some different coloured backgrounds.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Your cards are always "over the top" very well done and beautiful. I love your "Thinking of You" card. I don't know how you make such detailed exquisite cards in one sitting. It takes me FOREVER to make a fancy card. How DO you do it?
