Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge

Popping in today with a couple of cards for the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Let's Go Wild'!! 

I'm off to the Wellington Papercraft Show on Friday morning to help my friend Lowri with her Papervine stall. She is now selling the new Kaisercraft gel pens from her online store. After finding out I won a 48pk of them from Kaisercraft on Instagram, she asked me to make a few cards using them for the Wellington show.

I absolutely love the metallic pens, they are so shimmery and have great coverage. So decided to do some colouring with them:

So hard to capture the shimmer with my camera!! I decided to use these bear and lion stamps from Altenew 'Geometric Menagerie' and turn them into little note cards. I simply stamped them on white CS, coloured with the pens, fussy cut them out and added black pen to the edges. For a bit of interest I cut two panels of white CS slightly smaller than the card front, adhered them and popped the animals up on foam tape. Then all I had to do was stamp the sentiments in black. Nice and simple!!

I'm going to link these to the Taylored Expressions 'Share the Joy' Challenge #48 where their theme is:

Will also link to the Creative with Stamps Challenge # 5 where their theme is:

I have another card to show you using ALL of the pens (its rather colourful) but going to watch a few Instagram videos with Phoebe first. She always finds the funniest things to watch. If your looking for something funny you must have a look at Celeste Barber on Facebook or Instagram. She does her own versions of photos taken of celebrities, especially the Kardashians and shows what real women and Mum's look like. Hilarious!!!

Take care
