Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge | Sparkle & Shine with Tonic

Hey lovelies, I hope you are all having an awesome week ?

It is Wednesday which means....


This week the challenge is

Sparkle and Shine  

We are showcasing Tonic Studio 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 the lovely Heidi and team Simon will be giving away a $50 Voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store ! 



As soon as i saw the challenge theme i thought of Tonics Nuvo Gimmer Paste. I decided to use one of Simon's Stencils with the paste.


I wanted to go for a fairly feminine card and used the Tiny Hearts Stencil. I used two glimmer pastes and mixed them together, I was going to use the Purple one on its own but wanted to light it slightly so used Moonstone and it worked well.


I then used Simon's Painted hug Die and give it 3 coats of Tonic Glitter Pen in clear and teamed it with a sentiment from Simon. It needed something to soften it against the background so i die cut a heart from Vellum.

To finish up I used some Crystals from Studio Katia.


So not its YOUR turn.
