Simon Says.............a Sketch

It's Wednesday yet again - don't they just fly around ?? Hope you all enjoyed playing Bingo last week and it's now time for our new challenge at  Simon Says Stamp and this week we have a fabulous sketch by our lovely teamie Jane

I had a bit of a Magnolia week this week, I coloured  Tilda holding Heart with my usual Copics, I cut her out using round Nestabilities and stamped the edges with Magnolia's New Year leaf swirl (my most used ever Magnolia product) and then gently inked the stamping with distress inks. My Papers are also by Magnolia, as is the  Leaf die and the sentiment label.
You know by now the grouse I have about white flowers not being white/white but somewhat creamy so I decided to make my own.  Sometimes I use a punch but this time I used scalloped round nestabities. I cut them out of tissue paper (I've run out of mulberry paper) and this fabulous Tulle/Crinoline that I got from Simons Says Stamp store, what a bargain this is. I used alternate layers of tissue and cinoline, fastened them together with a brad, sprayed them with Glimmer mist, scrunched them up and 'fluffed' them out when dry - they are so pretty and fluffy (and WHITE!!) but difficult to photograph.

Here is Jane's fabulous sketch

As always, you can win this INCREDIBLE prize and a huge thank you to Heidi and the team at Simon Says Stamp for providing an amazing prize week after week!

The unifying circle theme is lovely on this & I love how the circles intertwine on the backing paper. Those flowers really pick out the texture of the doily too - & I love the way those gems pick up the delicate sheerness of your ribbon & the spots - sort of in reverse (in my head anyhow!).
