Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #350


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

This week the challenge is...

New Something

 We are using Wplus 9 this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-) 

If you follow my blog regularly, you probably know that I am always trying new things and new ways...because I get bored very easily doing the same thing-LOL. 

hello (Jan 6, SSS)
 For my project, I am using the stamp with a new twist, that is, compose the design with the stamp horizontally ( top and bottom).  I used the largest stamp "Watercolored Anemones" in this set. 

 The symmetry of this design makes it even more pleasing to the eyes.  I love the contrast of flowers with the sentiment and white card stock. Of course, I stamped all the designs with my trusty MISTI. I did coloring layering for the flower and I also layered the hello die for a subtle dimension.
 For your easy reference, these are my previous creations with this very same Wplus9 stamp/die. For more information, simply click on the photo and it will take you to the Flickr photo with a blog link.

Striking card, Virginia. Those flowers are so beautiful, and those colors are rich and vibrant. Love the bit of gold thread behind the bold black 'hello.' This is a fantastic card. Just love it. Bev
