Simon Says...............Joy's Summer Inspiration board


This week, our challenge for you is   
a SUMMER Inspiration board 
put together by our very own Teamie, Joy!!!
Isn't it great?? LOTS of inspiration to choose from here!!!!  

 I have chosen the flower in the bottom right corner as my inspiration! When I saw this, I immediately thought of my Hero Arts Engraved Daisy  stamp. So I set off to find it, and COULDN'T!! I totally freaked out, but eventually found it in a spot where it shouldn't have been!  OY!!!!  It is a cling stamp from Hero Arts with Red rubber....they are amazing - and ink very nicely!!!!  

This week the DT are showcasing the INCREDIBLE selection of Hero Arts products that Simon Says Stamp be SURE To check them all out!!!!

 Anyway,Here is my card for this week:

The CS is So Saffron (SU) and the DP is Lily Bee - Double Dutch. I just got my 34 piece gelatos kit a couple weeks ago so I had a play (actually I played a lot until I finally found a technique that looked great with this flower!)   I coloured on the stamp with the gelatos, then spritzed with water, then stamped.  I think it is the most simple of techniques but I think it turned out really pretty!!!  I used yellow, red and a metallic orange, but unfortunately you can't really see the shimmer in the picture from the orange!!! GRRRRR!!!!!  I attached some shimmery orange ribbon and yellowish orange rhinestones to bling it up a bit!!! The sentiment is from an exclusive Simon Says Stamp sentiment set.
