Simon Says STAMP-tember Blog Hop

For the second year in a row, Simon Says Stamp and Show & The Simon Says Stamp Challenge teams are joining forces to bring you a SUPER blog hop and treasure hunt to celebrate STAMPtember!

This is my first time to take part.  If you haven't taken part yet,  then go along and have a look as they have a huge basket of goodies for the hop winner.  Details of how to play are on their websites.

Here is the card I have made for the Anything Goes theme. 

Tall flower

I am also entering it in the Anything Goes theme for Simple Scrapping Crafts.

I tried some new techniques today with my new distress inks. An early birthday present. (My birthday is actually next Wednesday, but I got some vouchers early as my Dad is overseas and used them to buy some stamping stuff.)

The colours I used are dusty concord and peeled paint. I stamped the dusty concord ink onto my rectangle acrylic block and sprayed it with water and stamped it onto white cardstock. After it dried, I stamped the flower with black brilliance ink and added the stem and leaves by hand. I mounted this onto purple cardstock. I them embossed white cardstock with the "floral screen" cuttlebug folder and brushed it with the peeled paint ink pad to add colour to the embossed part. Finally I added some purple rhinestones.

Thanks for dropping by and for your comments.
