Simon Says: Fun with Florals!

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

This week Simon Says: Fun with Florals! The design team is featuring Paper Rose Stamps products! 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 started by stamping my Beautiful Day clear stamp by Paper Rose on some Bristol Smooth cardstock so that I could use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I used my Misti stamp positioner and corner accessories because I wanted to gold emboss my image once the coloring process was complete.

My marker colors are listed and linked below. I love using my Zigs, especially for a larger image. The coloring process is quick and they blend beautifully.  Once that was done, I stamped my image again using Versamark Ink and added Simon Says stamp Antique Gold embossing powder.

I trimmed my panel to 4.25 x 5.5 and decided to add some Sunny Studio pattern paper to the side (it's winter, I needed a rainbow!) I also added a small strip of Black Licorice cardstock to ground the color a little bit.

I die cut my Simon Says Stamp Hello die with some Tonic Harvest Gold and some Black Licorice cardstock and offset them, I felt it needed a secondary sentiment so I stamped the Big Hugs by Mama Elephant and added it to the card.

I added some Tonic Dream Drops in White and Gold to the centres of the purple flowers and the "Berries" above the pink flowers. To Finish off, I added my new obsession, these Studio Katia Icy Crystals - I LOVE THEM! They were one of Jennifer McGuires recommendations in her Favorite Crafty Things series.
