Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge

Hi everyone,

Welcome back! Today I'm sharing a card for this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge!!!


This week's challenge is a favourite: Anything Goes! The design team is using products from Penny Black. I love that they have stamps that fit so many different styles.

Here`s my card:




I white heat embossed the Penny Black Retro Pattern background stamp and cut it down to the size I wanted. Then I colored in the little diamonds with distress markers, and spritzed the whole thing with perfect pearls and water. Finally I used my finger to spread the water around to add subtle color to the open star-shaped pattern.

Here's what I used:


I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge! Up for grabs is a $50 gift voucher for the Simon Says Stamp store thanks to sweet Heidi! For all the details and to see what the other designers have come up with go HERE.




Thanks so much for stopping by!
Sarah
