We are showcasing PENNY BLACK 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 absolutely fell in love with this stamp as soon as I saw it!  I love the large size of the flower and all the colouring possibilities!  I’d love to heat emboss it in white and water colour it – imagine how gorgeous that would be!  When I get time I’ll have a play, lol!  In the meantime I decided I wanted to use Copics for this challenge.  I went with a traditional tiger-lily colour and blended some warm yellows and oranges (very much my favourite right now!!).  I fussy cut the lily after I coloured it and used Avery Elle Pierced Circle dies to create a frame and popped the flower into it.  I finished off with a few Simon says Stamp sequins and mounted the panel onto an Avery Elle notecard (from the Citrus Collection).  The sentiment is from the Avery Elle So Happy set which goes perfectly with the style of this flower I think.
