Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #278

wed-newchallenge-header 

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the  Back to School Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...
 Anything Goes
 We are using Memory Box products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-) 

For my project, I used a NEW Memory Box cling stamp called Memory Box Cling Stamp Berry Bird. I believe this stamp was meant for Christmas!

But I like the image so much, I decided that I can "make it work" for an all occasion card. I simply did not stamp the berry image...I used Peerless watercolor to color the bird image. If you are intrigued about this water-coloring media, here is a new video from  Jennifer McGuire. She did a SUPERB job explaining how she used them.
