THINKING OF YOU

Today is Armistice Day, in 1918 it signified the end of the 1st World War and is traditionally a day to remember all of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty. We Will Remember Them.
We are showcasing Hero Arts 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

We are lucky that we found out the challenges for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge well in advance so we have a chance to buy some new goodies from the featured craft company. Well I totally missed that we were using Hero Art this week so rather some brand new stuff I managed to find some old favourites that are still available from Simon Says Stamp.

First of all the paper is Kaiser Fairy Dust and I stamped the Hero Arts Leafy Vines direct to the paper using WOW embossing powder. Now I decided to paper prick round the paper hoping this will avoid me have to mat a layer but the jury is still out on that one.

My Butterfly is again from Hero Arts called Artist Butterfly, this time I stamped on two contrasting paper from the Kaiser paper pad using Gold Pearl embossing powder and carefully cut them out.  I stamped one butterfly direct to paper so that the Butterfly's antenna are stamped and therefore I don't have to cut them out. I used a Uni Ball Pen Signo Gel White to add some white to the butterfly.

Since this was a thinking of you challenge I got out the Simon says Stamp Thinking of you Die first cut out in white then in gold.

Oops I pressed Publish instead of link, the senior moments are coming thick and fast.
