Simon Says Stamp Make Your Own Background

Be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Store!


Welcome to Wednesday and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.....I luv Wednesdays....teeehehehe.

This weeks challenge is Make Your Own background, the Simon Says Stamp DT are using Gelatos....what fun!

Don't forget every week at Simon Says Stamp we give away a $50 voucher...woohoo...definitely worth playing for!


I had so much fun with the Gelatos, this was my first time using them....they remind me of a big fat crayon. Be sure to check out this link to see the many different ways you can use Gelatos. I used embossing paste to create the fun design with the new Simon Says Stamp Dots and Lines Stencil...sooo cute. Then I added water to the Gelatos and painted it on in random spots. I want to try some other ways of using the Gelatos, they are lots of fun. I cannot wait to see what background you create...sparkle & shine!
