This week I have chosen to feature Hero Arts lovely Magnolia Stamp which I have stamped in Memento Tuxedo black ink & coloured with my copics.

The beautiful Big Friend die cuts are from Simon's new Good Vibes release & I have die cut the larger of the two friends die once with white card stock & again with fun foam. My image is also foam mounted and to make sure they are the same height I adhered the white card stock Friend sentiment over my image & affixed the fun foam Friend die cut behind it. 

I wanted to keep my white background nice & bright so I just added a few flicks of Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar & Victorian Velvet distress inks onto it and added a couple of Simon's  Flamingo sequins.

Anniversary / Wedding - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I'm a little short of time as I spent way too long playing in my craft room so I'll get straight down to business!


 at
& this week our challenge is

WEDDINGS / ANNIVERSARY

& this week the design team are featuring
Impression Obsession logo
on our cards.
If you have them we would love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to enter our challenge.
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.
Do you use Instagram?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 


This week I have chosen to feature Impression Obsession I Ruff You cling stamp & I decided to stamp & also reverse stamp the cute image as it's something I haven't done in a long time & I thought having two dogs together would look even cuter.
I heat embossed the cute dogs with Versamark inkNuvo white embossing powder & then coloured them with my copics. I masked both the images off and created a background using Simon's lovely Mosaic Heart Stencil and a selection of Simon's inks, Sea Glass Blue, Audrey Blue, Island Blue, Surf Blue, Blue Violet, & High Dive. As the heart looked so beautiful and vibrant I was worried that the white embossed images wouldn't show up enough against the vivid colours so I popped my masks & stencil back in place and used Simon's White ink pad to soften the colours by blending it over the whole stencil & I added a couple of  Crystal Drops to the dogs eyes and a few sequins to embellish. 
The sentiment is from Simon's Tilted Banner Sayings stamp set and I have stamped it in black ink and die cut it using Simon's Tilted Banner dies.

The copic colours I've used are -
C6, C3, C1, C00 / B23, B21, B41 / R85, R83, R81 / YR23, YR21, YR20
