Simon Says Stamp Winter


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Bling It On  Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the $50 Voucher
This week the challenge is


We would like you to use this fabulous mood board for your inspiration.
This board was created for us to use by the lovely DT member  JENN.
We are showcasing PENNY BLACK products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

What a wonderful Inspiration Board that my team-mate Jenn made for the challenge, pretty much covers nearly everything.
I knew I wanted to use the Forest Friends which is a Penny Black Cling and I was really pleased to find that I could fit their heads in the Simon Say Stamp Holiday Frame which I cut out twice and stuck together.
The background was also made using a Penny Black stamp Festive Florals, I used the mistletoe one.
I stamped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.
Then watercoloured the leaves with a very pale green, not sure the camera picked up all the colour.
The berries were made using Ranger White Opal Liquid pearls, I did think to used flat backed pearls but they overpowered my card and I wanted the deer to be the main focus.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
