Simon Says: Anything Goes featuring Gina K. Designs!

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

But First...

Time for the annual Simon Says Stamp Kid’s Summer Vacation Challenge where we host a special challenge dedicated to our young designers!

Anything Goes With Sparkle and/or Shine

It is time for all you crafters to let your children loose in your crafty corners for a few hours. Just close your eyes and set them free to explore their creativity. Adults are allowed to help just a little bit if necessary, but we really want the children to ‘DO IT’ themselves as much as possible.

The Design Team all love this challenge and are ready and waiting to pop over to your blog to see your creations!

This challenge is open to all children aged between 2 and 16 inclusive

We have not 1, not 2 but  3 surprise parcels of crafty goodies, hand picked by Simon. All winners are chosen at random, Good Luck to all! You have until August 29, so a few days left to participate!

Now for this weeks Wednesday challenge!

This week Simon Says: Anything Goes! We are featuring Gina K. Designs 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 $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!

I tried something completely different than my usual style for this project.  I love this Heartfelt Hydrangea set by Gina K. and I wanted to use it differently. So I decided to emboss the Hydrangea in white and do some ink smooshing. 

I used a mix of Distress Inks on Tim Holtz watercolor paper and added some color direct to the flower petals after to intensify the color a little.

I then gold embossed my butterfly and used some Zig markers on it and fussy cut it out.

For my sentiment, I gold embossed it on some Simon Says Stamp Blue Violet cardstock and die cut it from a Simon Says Stamp thin frame. I put all of my elements together and then added some Pretty Pink Posh jewels!
