Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #408


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

This week the challenge is...

Fantastic Florals

 We are using Altenew products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

I am using one of the new released stamp from January 2017. 


This floral stamp set "Amazing You"has such an artistic hand-drawn flare. No matter how you stamp them, the design will always come out refined and lovely.

Hello beautiful (2)

 I stamped the images with Altenew Tropical Forest Inks and colored the images with Altenew Artist Markers (set A).These markers have two tips--brush and bullet . I utilized both sides and find them very easy to use. Noticed the little dots on the leaves and stems? They were added with the bullet tips.

Hello Beautiful!

 Here is my previous card with "Amazing You".
you are amazing!
The sentiment that comes in this set are lovely! If you are into floral sets, "Amazing You"
is suitable for any stamping level. 

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
