Simon Says: Anything Goes




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


Anything Goes!

We are showcasing some fabulous products from Hero Arts this week, you will need to pop by the challenge blog to see them all and please pop by to leave our lovely guest Caroline and the DT some comments, we all appreciate them XX 

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

When I was at the Simon Says Stamp CREATE event recently the lovely peeps from Hero Arts had a gorgeous 'Create and Take' using this lovely Peacock Bundle and I just had to get me a set! Isn't he beautiful!

I love that the bundle comes with little ink pads, saves rummaging through drawers trying to find the 'right' colours. Having said that I think this would look gorgeous in other colours, it is  on my 'to do' list ;-)



For the background I used a Hero Arts Peacock Feathers Stencil, a marriage made in heaven don't you think ;-) I used Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Inks, I did think I should use the Peacock Feathers Ink, but I think the Salty Ocean went better with the Hero Arts Inks.


and I finished the inside 


The card measures 5"X 6" so it doesn't fit into a standard envelope so I made one to match ;-)






So now it's YOUR turn to get out your crafty supplies and make whatever you like!! If you have any Hero Arts products we would love to see them used, but you don't HAVE to use them to join in with the challenge ;-)

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.





You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in

Challenges:
As You Like It.  Fur or Feathers, I like both but there is something quite magical about peacocks, when they fan their tails it is simply beautiful to see and it feels like you have witnessed something pretty special.
Crafty Gals Corner.  Punches and/or Dies
Moo Mania and More.  Birds
