Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #420


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

This week the challenge is...

Going Dotty

 We are using Stamping Bella 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 Tiny Townie Garden Girl Orchid.


The details from the cling stamps are amazing. I had a lot of fun coloring the images.


With my favorite watercolor medium Gansai Tambi Watercolors , it was not hard to make it colorful. I also used Prima Marketing Metallic Accent to add the shine.

Since the challenge is all about dots, I took out the Halftone Stencil (Altenew) and applied Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

You can add the paste/mousse before coloring. I actually made the mask AFTER the coloring and did the stenciled paste afterwards. It worked, too!  The sentiment is from Friends of Life (Simon Says Stamp).

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.

A cheerful and oh-so-pretty card, Virginia! You've breathed colourful life into this image; I'm smitten with the dress, especially! I think this card lifted your spirits as you designed it and it's certainly lifted mine!

Oh my really outdid your self this time. Such wonderful coloring and the dotty background makes the central image shine. Even the plaid card base adds to this little masterpiece.
