Simon Says: A Bit Of Sparkle




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

This week the challenge is

A Bit Of Sparkle 


I think most of us like a little bit of sparkle. I think I must have been a magpie in a previous life as I do love glitter and shiny stuff ;-)

This week we are showcasing our very own exclusive Simon Says Stamp Products. You don't have to use them for 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


Please pop by to see what our super talented guest Sonia and the DT have made, and please leave comments :-) 



I used Watercolour paper and white heat embossed the background design. I then sprinkled A Bit Jaded and Blackcurrant Infusions and then spritzed with water, the transformation was amazing to watch! A few tiny specks goes a long way. I used kitchen towel to remove a lot of the colour as I wanted the background to be quite subtle. I absolutely LOVE this effect and now need to get all of the infusions colours! 

I used an iron to remove the melted embossing powder. 


I really didn't want to cover any of the background so I simply die cut a circle of vellum and then added some sparkly twine, sequins and 'hugs' to finish it off. I added extra sparkle using a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen over the die cut 'Hugs' 





So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
