Simon Says: Anything Goes with Tim Holtz

Hello crafty friends! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Anything Goes! The design team is featuring - wait for it...Tim Holtz products, woot!  It isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!

I picked-up a few Tim Holtz stencils a few months back and I just love them. For those of you that follow me, you know that there is nothing I love more to stage a floral grouping than a selected stencilled background.

I started by colouring these sweet Honey Bee Cosmos flowers with my RV Copic family based on an inspiration picture I found via Google search.

I just loved the definition of the petals and the colors made me feel a little more after summer.

Once those were colored and die cut, I placed them on my panel to see how much of the stencil I wanted to incorporate. I pulled out my Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and blended just a portion of the Gradient Dot stencil by Tim Holtz.  I felt the colors were more fall inspired and I really like the contrast with the fuchsia. 

Before adhering my flowers, I used a rounded rectangle die for the panel. I then glued my flowers to the panel and used foam tape to glue it to the card base.

I die cut the Celebrate die also by Honey Bee and added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins in a similar fuchsia color.  To add more dimension to the flower centres, I added some Nuvo Dream Drops in the gold color. I am super happy with the way this turned out!
