{Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge} Anything Goes With Pearls



Welcome to the last Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge in February! This week's challenge is Anything Goes with Pearls which means you need to create a project using pearl accents, pearlized paper, perfect pearls, pearlescent embossing paste, etc. The design team is featuring products by Bazzill. You don't have to use them but we'd love to see them if you have any!


This winter has been long so I decided to create a card in bright, happy springtime colours! All of the papers, including the vellum, are by Bazzill. I used Sour Lemon, Licorice Twist and Jawbreaker from their wonderful heavy weight Card Shoppe collection. I love sturdy cardstock and the variety of colours offered in this collection are fantastic!


I did a lot of watercolouring on the centre panel using Tim Holtz's watercolour cardstock and distress inks. The stamps are from Green Acres by Paper Smooches. I created masks for the chicken and chick so the background colours wouldn't blend into them. I added grain in the form of pearls and coloured them with Copic markers to prettify the scene. ;)


One winner will be chosen at random to win a $50 gift voucher to the awesome Simon Says Stamp Store!


It could be you!



I hope you will play along with us this week!



Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday. :)

The rest of the card (embossing, layering, die-cutting) is pretty awesome, too! (but my fave part is the prettified pearls).
