Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge # 280

wed-newchallenge-header  
Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the  Happy Birthday Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)
This week the challenge is...
Create your Own Background

 We are using  GELATOS made by FABER-CASTELL 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  Metallic Mint Double Scoop Gelatos, Guava Double Scoop Gelatos and Tropical Gelatos

thinking of you
About this card: I used Penny Black Stamp called Textures and with that, I created a colorful background with the Galatos.  I simply embossed the honeycomb image in white and colored the hexagons carefully with the help of the Water Brush. The flower and sentiment are from this Simon Exclusive set called Friendly Flowers

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