Simon Says: Summer Garden


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week the challenge is


Summer is a wonderful season to enjoy your garden, the weather is warm enough to sit outside and relax, invite friends over for barbecues and enjoy picnics on the grass. We can't wait to see what creations you make for this challenge!

This week we are showcasing products from Paper Artsy, if you have them we would love to see them used but you don't have to use them to join in with the challenge.

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

The lovely and super talented Alison Bomber aka Words And Pictures is joining us in the Designer Spotlight this month. If you haven't seen her blog you are in for a real treat! Please pop by to say 'Hi' and leave her a lovely comment

I used a lovely Eclectica 3 Stamp Set designed by Kim Dellow

Summer is my favorite month, even though it can get unbearably hot there is always the cool pool or mediterranean sea to jump into. I used the rubble wall die from a Mixed Media 3 set to create a rocky area and then popped the cute little hedgehogs in the shade of the trees to protect them from the blazing sun. I inked the background with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and then stamped the little circles with Aquamarine Archival Ink before using a Dot Fade Stencil and White Embossing Paste over the top.

This does look a lot like my garden, I have a stone wall, a turquoise pool and some lemon and orange trees! I think I recreated it quite well haha :-)

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting!

I am currently on vacation in London so I will catch up with you all when I get home :-)

Happy Crafting
