Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the add A Die Cut Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Make Your Own Background  

We are showcasing Lawn Fawn Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

So there I was about to make my background by masking the clouds and realising there was going to be a lot of clouds to mask before using  Broken China, Salty Ocean and Faded Jean Oxides to blend the sky.

What was I thinking we all know if there's a shortcut I will take it. So I blended the background all blue and used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles. I then took the Lawn Fawn Plane and Simple stamps and stamped my clouds on white card and fussy cut them out or if you prefer buy the dies.

I wondered how people coloured the planes so I checked google images and I could only find images using the old type of plane that also comes with stamp set. This made me decide for the modern plane and just colour the wing and tail fins. I stuck the blue ones one down (actually its one plane that I cut in half. I raised the red one using 3d pads.

Finally I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Banners and used one of the sentiments that came with the stamp set.

A little tip if like me you fussy cut the clouds and planes I recommend you use a Distress Pen in Pumice Stone, I use to one to hide some bad cutting out and to help them to stand out.

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

Such a sweet and fun card Debby and your blue background with the clouds looks great with the red and blue planes. You have a lot of patience to cut the all out, but they look so effective and love the way you have emphasised the black edges to give them definition. x
