Anything Goes At Simon Says Stamp

Good afternoon lovely peeps!


It's Wednesday which means -
 at
& this week our challenge is
Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
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 my lovely teamies & I are featuring 
Ranger
   goodies on our cards. You don't have to use them to enter our challenge but we'd love to see them if you do.
For today's card I have definitely been flower happy! As we are featuring Ranger products this week I wanted to create something different than the usual bold coloured inky creations that I for one associate Ranger products with, so I have chosen the complete opposite!

I have used Ranger's lovely staggered brickwork stencil with embossing paste & I have added some white Gesso over the top of the paste once it dried to highlight my stencil work. The papers have been lightly distressed using Old Paper distress ink & scissors, and I've blended Milled Lavender distress ink over white card stock using Ranger's ink blending tool before die cutting Simon's pretty butterflies & punching some hydrangeas.

  15. Oh Mandy, this is one of my new favorites from you. I love that you showcased a softer side of Ranger. The floral cluster is stunning atop the elegant and whimsical background. I always love frames, so that is another favorite part... and oh the colors! :o) I love every sweet and sunshiny inch of this. Thank you for the heartfelt inspiration you always share.

    Hugs and blessings,
    Karen
