Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Anything Goes

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Bright and Cheerful Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Anything Goes

We are showcasing  W plus 9 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.

So here are my cards for the challenge inspiration. I used The Crew : Garden Club Stamp and Dies set from Wplus9.

I started by stamping the images from The Crew Garden Club on 80lb Neenah White paper using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then I colored the images using my copic markers and Nuvo alcohol markers. I then cut the images using coordinating dies.

I prepared A2 sized Bristol paper for distress ink blending. For the transverse card, I used Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive , Worn Lipstick, and Dried Marigold. To devide the space, I simply used post-it sticky notes for masking.

For the vertical card, I used Carved PumpkinWild HoneyFossilized AmberSqueezed LemonadeTwisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn.
I masked off 4 edges using washi tape to make framed look.

After bledning was done, I splattered water and then I adhered my images using glue and foam tapes. Sentiment was chosen from Pretty Pink Posh Encouraging Greetings set and The Crew Garden Club set, stamped using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

 I adhered the panels onto card bases I made using Simon Says Ivory Card Stock and Lemon Chiffon Yellow Card Stock.
As a final embellishment, I added  Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix , 4mm Lime Sorbet, 6mm Lime Sorbet, and Ballerina Pink Sequins
