Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Red and Green....


Wow! a huge thank you to everyone who helped us reach our goal of 200 entries for our stitching challenge. Your entries were totally amazing and I thank you so very much, you totally rock!

This week joining Simon Says Stamp challenge in the Designer Spotlight is the uber talented Tara Godfrey of Inking on the Edge. Tara makes the most stunning creations which I regularly drool over and we are so honoured that she has joined us this week.

The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp is Red and Green. I have coloured my Sarah Kay image with Ranger distress inks. I have added stickles for some sparkle and have distressed the background with old paper. I have used Tim's distressing tool on all my edges and have distressed them with old paper. I have added some distressed stickles rock candy and added some star dust stickles too. I have added basic grey buttons to the centre of my flowers.

My autumn leaves sentiment was distressed with shabby shutters and sprayed with glimmer mist as was my basic grey paper. The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch.

Please do go and check out the rest of SSS dt their creations are fabulous! I thank you so very much for looking and for any comments that you leave I thank you from the bottom of my heart they mean so much.
