Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #407


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

This week the challenge is...


 We are using Wild Rose Studio 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 Bella with Flowers.  

The images are perfect for simple watercoloring. 

Hello There

I had lots of fun coloring these images. To prevent from the ink-bleeding, I applied clear embossing powder stamping stamping it in Versamark. Works like a charm--every single time. I colored the images with my favorite Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi (36) Watercolors.

Hello There

I also added some stitched detailed by using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Borders.
This set comes with 4 stitched lines that you can use individually or like I do here--4 at a time. It's a lovely addition with any stamped design.

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 :-)
