Anything Goes At Simon Says Stamp

Good afternoon lovely peeps!

It's Wednesday which means -
& 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 
   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.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
