Simon Says: Flowers!


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

This week the challenge is


With or gardens, pots and parks now coming into bloom we thought our blogs should join in. Whether you choose to use die cuts, stamps or ready made flowers we are sure that they will all be pretty and we are looking forward to seeing what you make!

We are showcasing Prima Flowers Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in with the challenge, but if you have them 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

For the background I inked a panel of Watercolor Paper with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and then using a mask created using a Mixed Media 3 Die I smothered a thick layer of White Sand Texture Paste. when this was dry I coloured it with dabs of Pumice Stone Distress paint and splattered with Black and White Ink. I love the  neutral tones of the stone wall background behind the bright and colourful Jill ;-)

I used scraps of paper from a Doodlebug Paper Pack which is discontinued but this Spring Garden Pack is very similar to give her a flowery top and the roses are miniature Prima Roses, sprayed purple using a Copic Air Brush. 

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
