Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #367


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

This week the challenge is...

Stencil It

 We are using Stencil Girl 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 WoodCut Roses

This stencil is certainly worth every penny! I had great fun playing with it in so many different ways.  

H Birthday

With stencils, it provides the perfect chance to practice ink-blending. The Distress Inks blended so perfectly.  I had used Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkin, Ripe Persimmon, Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn.

Happy Bday #2
The key is to plan out your design ahead! Also, do make sure you cover up the area with Washi Tape when you apply each section. And keep your fingers clean, so it will not smear the images by accident  :)

If you like to see my previous projects on using this stencil, just click on the photos.
( sorry if this stencil is still out of stock--boo!)
