Girl Power! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I am at last starting to feel better after having the flu, I'm just extremely tired & achy still but definitely on the mend thankfully.
I was looking at my photos on my laptop & discovered I have so many cards to share with you & while I am still resting have begun to schedule some blog posts rather than bombard you with too many in one post.

It's Wednesday which means -

& this week our challenge is

& this week the design team are featuring
Winnie and Walter logo
products 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. 

I stamped & masked some of the pretty roses & leaves onto water colour paper using Hero Arts Soft Sky & Green Hills shadow ink pads & then coloured them with Polychromo pencils to give a soft water coloured effect. 
I gave the background a wash of colour using Prima Pastel Dreams Watercolors & added a few flicks of watered down Shaded Lilac  & Stormy Sky distress ink , & once dry added some pearls
I stamped & heat embossed part of my sentiment from Simon's You Matter stamp set in white embossing powder & added a die cut of Simon's "You" die to finish. 

 Supplies used -
