Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes !

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in with our Christmas Challenge !

It's Wednesday and 

Yes, we have a new challenge over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge !

The theme this week is 

Anything Goes !

The Design Team are this week showcasing Altenew products.

For this week's challenge, as always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a fabulous $50 voucher for the Simon Says Stamp Store!

I've seen a lot of cards around recently with the background stamped in black and white and I love this as much as the sentiment heat embossed with white embossing powder on black card !  It's such a striking effect.

I heat embossed the Hibiscus flowers with gold embossing powder and then watercoloured them with Gansai Tambi watercolour paints.  The centres I painted with the pearl paint from the set.  In real life this looks fantastic and it all shines so much, the gold and the pearl.  I really love how this card turned out.

You can see a list of everything I used below !

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you make !

Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a great day !

Kuretake UK - Christmas

Christmas is certainly in the air ! Are you getting excited yet ?!! Well, over at Kuretake UK we are getting all our Christmas projects ready to show you and here is the first of mine !

I watched a video made by Dawn of WPlus9 a few weeks ago where she used Gansai Tambi paints for stamping with.  You can see her video HERE.

I just knew I had to try this technique with this gorgeous stamp set "Twinkle Towns" by Mama Elephant.  I followed Dawn's technique by applying a green watercolour wash in the area where I was going to stamp and then painted directly onto the stamp before stamping onto the watercolour card.  I then did the same for the branch.  There is a pale blue wash over the watercolour card too.

I gold heat embossed the "string", the bauble and decorative inside too and then watercoloured the village scene.

I really love how this turned out and will be trying this technique again !

Thank's for looking !
