♥ Simon Says...Anything Goes! ♥

Happy Hump Day! It's time for a brand new challenge over at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! It's Anything Goes!!
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Newtons Nook and/or Lil' Inkers Designs! I am using the Fanfare Scalloped Border Die by Lil' Inkers on my card today. Love this fun die!

I first watercolored on some Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock. Using a brush, I first added some plain water to the paper. I then dabbed some ink onto a corner of an acrylic block, to act as my pallette. I then added a little more water to my brush and then picked up some of the ink and added it to my paper. I used 3 different Distress Inks...Evergreen Bough, Broken China and Tumbled Glass. After the inks were dry, I then ran the Fanfare Scalloped Border Die through my machine a few times, to make 3 die cuts, using the cardstock. I then added them to my card using some Glossy Accents. I finished it off by adding some Liquid Pearls to the die cuts. The sentiment is from the True Love stamp set by Ali Edwards (Technique Tuesday).

And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!
