Back To School! Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!


This week our challenge is

Back To School!

The design team are featuring

Simon Says Stamp
exclusive products on our cards this week.
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 have created a bookmark for this weeks challenge & it features an adorable clear stamps set called Bee Yourself which I received in my SSS July Card Kit Of The Month. This card kit sold out quickly but you can still purchase the different elements individually. I also used Simon's Embossing Ink Pad, White Embossing Powder, Black Pigment Ink & some Treasure Chest sequins.

The cute bees were stamped in Simon's Black Pigment Ink onto Canson XL watercolour paper & water coloured using Altenew Watercolour pans. This set of pans is currently sold out but there are many alternative watercolours here!

I stamped the honeycomb stamps from the Bee Yourself Stamps Set in embossing ink & heat embossed them using Simon white fine detail embossing powder

I watercoloured the honeycomb with my Altenew pans & then added in some Wild Honey Distress Ink to add more depth to the honeycomb, & then splattered on some of my paint, distress ink & white gouache. Once dry I added some Treasure Chest Sequins, Simply White, Pale Gold & Buttermilk Nuvo Crystal Drops.

 Other supplies used -

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

While I was playing with my SSS July card kit I decided to make a little card for my daughter using the same supplies & techniques as above. 
I die cut my card base from Simon's Sunshine card stock and Simon's 3 Sided Scallop wafer die. I have used this die so many times before so it's definitely a must have for me!

I'm entering my bookmark / card in the following challenges -
