Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the "Let's Be Clear" Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

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

SPOTS AND DOTS

We are showcasing  Paper Smooches 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.
 Here is my take with this week's challenge!
add colors to my life
I made a one layer card! And I loved how it turned out.
I used the two small dots and the paint brush from this set ( I heart Art). First I stamped the dots from the larger size to the smaller size and applied the Generation Stamping technique.
That way you get a bokeh effect. Lastly, I used Liquid Pearl  and Smooch to add all the fine dots and shine. And of course, adding the sequins (Pretty Pink Posh) was part of the fun. 

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
