Simon Says Stamp - "Check It Out"

This week our challenge at Simon Says Stamp challenge is to CHECK IT OUT!!!! Use checks, plaid, gingham, etc. on your creation!!!!!  'Check out the other DT's fabulous creations and visit their blogs to get more info about their projects.

 I coloured the beautiful 'Shy Willow' with distress inks. The edges of the image are stamped with a Basic Grey flourish stamp and heat embossed using clear power. I then inked the edges using blue and green inks. 
The papers are Basic Grey's Archaic and I've used Prima pearls, stamped the piece at an angle ith a Tim Holtz script stamp (then cleverly more or less covered it up). The edges are distressed using the Tim Holtz disstressing tool then edged with Stardust stickles. The pearls are Prima as are the two top most flowers and the pearl brad is American accents. All these products are sold at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp store. The netting is some I bought some garlic cloves in, the two larger leaves cut from a Christmas decoration and the other  leaves cut with a Sizzix die.

We look forward to seeing your fabulous creations and don't forget


this fabulous prize is on offer and Heidi will pay the shipping costs.
