Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #366


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

This week the challenge is...

Anything Goes

 We are using Stampendous 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 Queen Anne's Lace Cling Stamp. This stamp has some fine outline details. It is lovely to use.

I tried to stamp it as colorful as I can with the help of MISTI.
hello (Stampendous)
To accentuate the stamped images, I added a strip of glitter and some pattern paper. I also added torn paper for the extra interest and texture. 

After my first card (which is slightly more clean and simple), I decided to do another version. I gold-embossed the image and did watercoloring with Kuretake. 
hello friend  
Somehow it reminds me the Oriental/Japanese painting. I guess that you sometimes see the gold and subtle colors in the Japanese art and painting? 

Anyways, you can definitely see the possibilities with this stamp.
As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

You + MISTI = Magic! You do so many wonderful things with your MISTI and these cards are no exception. So, so, so pretty!

Wow wow wow both soooo beautiful!

I agree, Virginia, the embossed card does resemble Japanese water colors. These cards are terrific. I like the lst very much, perhaps it's the multi colors; however, the embossed is beautiful. Those water color paints must be delightful.

This is such a pretty stamp, Virgina! What a treat to see 2 versions of it! Nicely done!

Nicole Parmentier said...

Shelly said...

So so pretty both the cards, Virginia! I particularly love the gold embossing on the second card with watercolouring. Very trendy combo :)

So many people think of Queen Anne's lace as a weed, but I think they're pretty! Love the colorful ones you've created on your cards. FABULOUS Virginia!!
