Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #436


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

This week the challenge is...

"Anything Goes"

 We are using "Hero Arts" 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 Hero Arts Blue Whale Stamp set. 


This is such a fine stamp set fro creating encouragement, thinking of you and masculine cards. I love how EASY it is to line up to stamp this beautiful whale image.

I decided to add a piece of vellum to give it some light...and life.

What can I say? Even Dr. John had to turn his head when he saw this card...
He was impressed with this card!
And he is one that is hard to impress!

Wow! I own this stamp set, too but never thought it could look this fantastic. Wonderful ocean and, you right, the vellum is the perfect touch. No wonder Dr. John was impressed.

Fab layered whale, Virginia, and I love the vellum sentiment on the ocean!!

Harriet said...

Your card is outstanding!!! The whale is lovely, but it's the way you arranged not only the whale, the colors, the sequins and the vellum. Simply brilliant!

Lisa Elton said...

That is such a realistic looking whale image! This is terrific Virginia!

Dawn Turley said...

A very pretty card. The whale is an unusual theme, but you've made it amazing.

Carol L said...

THis is such a wonderful card with the whale image! I love all the water that you created with the added sparkle of sequins and that vellum sentiment panel looks fantastic! So pretty!
