Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Hey lovelies, I hope you are well  and all had a lovely Christmas ? 
This is a scheduled post as I am going into hospital today to have an operation so I am sorry that I would be able to visit your blogs for a little while, but as soon as I can I will :) 

I would like to take the chance to wish you all a very Happy 2017 and thank you all for your support during this year, you guys are awesome and I am very blessed to have some many kind friends. I hope 2017 is an amazing year for you all. 


It is Wednesday which means it is time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

It is time for a new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is

Anything goes

This week we are showcasing
Lindys Stamp Gang You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see what you create with them.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


 I decided to make a Happy 2017 card for this weeks challenge and I did some ink smooshing using my Spectrum Aqua Markers.

 This is such a fun technique....I even got Mr Inky doing it with me. If you haven't tried it then I highly recommend it.

I used my Aqua Markers but it can be done with with Distress Inks and watercolour paints.

I created several panels but decided to use this one which I due cut using Stitched Rectangle die.

The Happy sentiment I die cut from some black card and then when over it with my Spectrum Noir Sterling Silver Sparkle Pen.

I then die cut the numbers from some Silver Glitter card.

 I adhered everything to the panel using some Multi Medium Matte, and once it was dry I added some shadows to the numbers using a black gel pen. 

I then added some sequins and adhered to a black A2 note card. 

 This picture shows some of the sparkle on the Happy Die cut. 

I really had lots of fun getting inky with this card.   

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
