CAS & Tilda With Butterfly - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps!
I've been away for a few days to Centre Parks on a working holiday and hopefully by the time my blog post is published I will be on my way back home :)

It's Wednesday which means ..........   

& this week our challenge is
CAS - Clean & Simple!
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
 My lovely teamies and I are featuring
products on our cards this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory 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 am so not comfortable making CAS cards so this was a challenge for me to leave the card alone!
 It's not photographed too well but hopefully you'll be able to see it ok!
On this card I stamped the pretty Hero Arts Hydrangea stamp with Versamark & heat embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder & then coloured it with distress inks.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

Simon Says Stamp

I also have a Spring inspired Tilda With Butterfly wooden wall hanging to share with you today so my style of creations kind of goes from one extreme to the other lol.
 The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, clothes - C3, C1, C00 / G21, G43, G40, watering can - C4, C2, C0, Butterflies - N9, N7, N5 / R12, R01, R000 / YR04, YR20, YR000, flowers -  YR24, YR23, YR21 / G43, G40
 I've used lots embellishments from my stash on this wall hanging. The papers I've had for ages & are by Kaiser (I think!), the pretty Hydrangea flowers are by Prima & those adorable little ladybirds are by Woodware.
This wall hanging has already sold but there is another available in my Etsy shop right now!
 I am really enjoying making wall hangings at the moment and have a few more that are almost ready:)
That's me finished for now peeps!
