Simon Says….Anything Goes!


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

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

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


We are showcasing HERO ARTS PRODUCTS this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.

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


I used one of my all time favourite Hero Arts stamps – the Zig Zag Chevron background cling stamp.  I started with a white panel (4″ x 4.25″) and stamped the background in Versamark and embossed in white WOW embossing powder.  I then blended Peacock Feather, Broken China and Tumbled Glass distress inks over the embossing to give a gradient effect.  I chopped a bit out of the middle and popped the two pieces on foam squares leaving a gap for my sentiment.  This is from Avery Elle’s latest release “Look Up” – love the sentiments in this set.  I coated the chipboard stars with white enamel accents (I think I pinched this idea off Julie Ebersol!!) for some extra shine!
