Simon Says Splatter It!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Before moving on to the challenge we are sad to say that our lovely and super talented teamie, Caryn, has stepped down from the team. We are  all very sorry to see her go but would like to take this opportunity to THANK YOU Caryn, not only for your fabulous creations over the past few years, but also for your team spirit and willingness to always be so helpful. We wish you the very best for the future, love from us all xx

Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Splatter It 

This week we are showcasing Ranger Products. You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Here is my take on the challenge. I have generously splattered Black Soot distress oxide ink on the card front to add interest to the background of the card.


The flowers are from Simon Says Stamp Florals stamp set from One of a Kind collection released recently. I stamped them using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink on bristol paper and water coloured them using Ranger’s distress oxide inks. The inks I used are Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral, Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover. Love the chalky finish. The watercoloured cluster was then die cut using the coordinating die. I did couple of them to layer.

On the card front which is Fog cardstock from Simon Says Stamp, I spattered Black Soot distress oxide inks generously. This adds visual interest to the background. I layered and adhered the watercoloured flowers on the cardfront. The first using glue and the second using foam adhesives. The sentiment is also from Simon Says Stamp Thanks die. I die cut the shadow die using black cardstock and the word die using white glitter paper and glued on top of the shadow. Finally embellished the card using matt black enamel dots from Your Next Stamp.

I have used Ranger products to both watercolour the focal point as well as add interest to the background. Hope my card inspires you to make your own and participate in the challenge.
