Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #348

wed-newchallenge-header 

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

This week the challenge is...

Make It Sparkle

 We are using Technique Tuesday 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 had a lot of fun using watercolor effect and had a wild time splashing and dabbing the colors. With only 3 colors of Zig markers, the impact is huge!

 This stamp set "heartfelt thanks" is so lovely and intricate.

It was designed by former Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Online editor Cath Edvalson.

I added Perfect Pearl to the mix for the extra shine at the end. The gold shimmer is absolutely lovely. In order to keep the design theme homespun and delicate, I added bits of paper doily on top and added gold strings to finish it off.

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

Love that heart but it's gorgeous against that shimmery background. And, od course, the addition of the doily is brilliant...that and the lovely sentiment make this a beautiful Valentine.

Beautiful card, love the splashes of colour behind the lovely embossed heart along with the doily and pretty gold string. The torn word strip along the bottom is the perfect accompaniment, love it! Deb xo
