Use a Stencil


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Boys Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is

Stencil It   

We are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Exclusive 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

Mmmm I think I go carried away with the stencils, I used Oxides for all of the background well except the sequins. The main colour is Squeezed Lemonade and I covered the whole page, if I did it again I would leave a white space in the middle since I now think it was a bit much.

With the help of post it notes and scraps of paper I carefully used the Tim Holtz Roses Stencil and moving it around I placed my roses. I matched up the roses but covered them so I could use the leaf parts. Finally I used the Simon Says Stamp Large Falling Hearts stencil carefully covering up any hearts that may fall on my roses.

I used the Tim Holtz Stamping Platform for stamping my sentiment because I wanted to make sure it showed up well. The sentiment came from the Simon Says Stamp Thoughtful Messages stamp set.

It needed something else so I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitching Butterflies dies, they're out of stock at the moment but I would recommend to use the notify me link because I think they will be flying out of the doors once they arrive back in stock.

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

Hi Debby! I love your stencilled background, how you were able to add different colors to the ink blending. Beautiful! :) Keeping the butterflies white helps bring out the background so beautifully!
