Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #362


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

This week the challenge is...

Anything Goes

 We are using Ranger 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 am using Tim Holtz Distress Crayons (my latest obsession).

I stamped the entire background with Distress Inks and then clear-embossed the images with the help of MISTI.  I then applied Distress Crayons over the butterflies. For embellishments, I added vellum, pattern paper and a large sequin. 

This card was made BEFORE I posted the Detailed Coloring.  If you are super intrigued about Distress Crayons, you should see my post here from yesterday. It is ALL about Detailed Coloring with Distress Crayons.

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!
There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog . If you haven't subscribed by email, you may want to do so you don't miss out.
You have until Wed. 8am Eastern Time to join in :-)
Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too !

This is actually the card I was looking for - had to tell you how amazing your use of color is. Those butterflies jump (fly?) right off the paper. Fabulous creation!
