Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #381


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

This week the challenge is...

Go Wild

 We are using Wplus9 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 "wild" design, I decided to incorporate wood-grain to simulate the zebra-prints... Can you see my wild vision? 

I used Freehand Florals and did some masking.

you are fabulous

I painted the wood-grain with the help of Kuretake watercolors and wood-grain stencil (Ranger). All supplies are listed below.

SO cool! I love how you used the woodgrain background. Perfectly wild. :)

Your lovely flowers 'softens' the wood grain yet doesn't diminish the contrast you created. Very nice.

Brilliant of you to use the woodgrain for zebra's an amazing background for those gorgeously painted flowers. This has such style and is so pleasing to the eye.
