Pink and Mint


We wish you all a Very Happy New Year and hope that 2017 is a good one for everyone!
Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Make It Sparkle 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

 Anything Goes

This week we are showcasing Lindy's Stamp Gang Products.  You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them 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

I decided to use the Lindy's Gang Chateaux Rose and Merci Beaucoup Mint Sprays because they were pretty colours. Now the actual challenge is for Anything Goes and these Simon Says Stamp Poinsettia stamp set were on my desk and had barely been used.

So I sneaked some powder out the the Lindy's Gang sprays before I added water to colour the my poinsettias which were stamped with Memento Gray Flannel Inkpad. Even though I have the matching dies, my painting was a bit messy, so I fussy cut them.

I colour blend the Simon Says Stamps Mint and the Simon Says Stamp Cotton Candy the back ground and used them to stamp my sentiment. I them sprayed the sprays, I do recommend to try on a scrap first unlike me who went charging in there are some nasty blobs hiding under the flowers. This was not the fault of the sprays I was probably to close but it did dry and looked much better and like I said the worse bits the flowers hid.

Pearls I found in my stash but I found some on on the Simon Says Stamps website from Kraisercraft .

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting 

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

I love the soft pink and green which is so pretty Debby and the blended and spritzed colour in the background works well. The pearls in the centres of the poinsettias look beautiful too. x
