Anything Goes! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!

Tim Holtz

products on our cards this week.

This week I am featuring lots of different Tim Holtz products as I have created three different cards! 
I have a box file with lots of different coloured images & unfinished projects in so I had a rummage through there and have finished an additional two different cards all featuring Tim Holtz products.

I decided to challenge myself to using some colours I don't normally put together & was totally uninspired looking through my huge card stock stash so decided to look at what Prima flowers I have & I decided to go with a peach colour and Simon's Fog Grey card stock.

My next card is a very simple stencilled card using Simon's Circular Lace stencil with Scattered StrawBroken China & Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.
The card stock is Simon's Green Leaf card stock, the sentiment is from Simon's Amazing stamp set & I have added a few Nuvo Duck Egg Blue & Buttermilk Crystal Drops.

Lastly I have created a totally CAS stamped card using Tim Holtz Mini Crazy Cats & Dogs stamps which I have coloured with my copics. 

I decided I wanted to fill the bottom of this card with Crazy Dogs so I chose the dogs I wanted to use and was playing around positioning the masks I had made but couldn't manage to fit them all in & see all of their little faces properly. I almost gave up & just stamped three dogs but then I had a light bulb moment and remembered reverse stamping! Once I had flipped some of the masks & jiggled them about I was happy with them so got stamping.

The sentiment and cute little paw prints are from Simon's Bone-A-Fide Birthday stamp set & have been stamped in Simon's Black Pigment Ink directly onto my card.
