Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #411


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

This week the challenge is...  

For A Special Lady/Girl (Mother's Day UK)

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

you are beautiful 

For my project, I am using the two large cling stamps from Penny Black. They were released just for the Valentine's season. However, I think they can be used all year round.




With the help of regular MISTI, I was able to position the stamps and did multiple -stamping with various inks. I love the ease of using Distress Crayons to add colors. The vibrancy is amazing, isn't it?

 I love using part of the large stamps to create an original and unique design. 
Today's post is a good example. I took 2 large floral cling stamp and make them work together.

Ding----> look through your background stamps and larger size stamps in your stash.  Do try using part of each stamp. Of course, the stamps may have a theme that will work together (although it depends on the project, it may not have to). I bet you will find the possibilities and enjoying seeing a new outcome!

The following are my previous examples of these two stamps.
