{Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge} Spring Flowers



Welcome to the first Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge in May! This week's challenge is Spring Flowers, which means we want to see flowers on your project. The design team is featuring Penny Black products. You don't have to use it but we'd love to see some if you have it.


I made a one-layer card using the gorgeous new lily stamp called Luminous. I stamped the flower on Hero Arts watercolour paper and coloured it using distress inks and brushes. I misted some of the areas and dried it with a heat tool before stamping the sentiment from Avery Elle's Red & Goldie stamp set.


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. :)
