Simon Says Stamp Challenge: ANYTHING BUT A CARD!

HELLO HELLO HELLO! Today is my first official challenge post as a Simon Says Stamp Design Team member!!! ACK! I am STILL pinching myself…. I am sooooo very excited about this opportunity and to work along side these talented ladies is amazing! Thank you Heidi, Stephanie and Lols for having me on board!!!! Today’s challenge is anything but a card. Now those of you that follow me knows that rarely happens, if ever! So I had to get my thinking cap on and hit the youtube videos and came across this wonderful video by Jill Foster! Ironically, I had the bird so I decided to use her technique and create a bird/flowers sort of scene for my craft room…. Let’s have a look:

I heat embossed the patterns and used lots of Faber Castell Gelatos and Hero Arts stamps to create the birds and flowers! Also added a touch of Tim Holtz distress stains to the mix… Supply list is at the end of this post.  Here’s a close up of each:

The wonderful Heidi is offering up a $50 gift certificate to the Simon Says Stamp online store!!!!!! HELLO!!!!!! That’s awesome!
