Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Vacation Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we are challenging you to
There are so many fabulous stencils available right now and there are so many techniques you can use with them. It is fun to ink, spray or use embossing paste, lots of options and the end result is always a little bit unpredictable. It is a fabulous way to create your own backgrounds, or the designs can be the focus of attention. Of course you can always create your own stencils, whatever you decide to do we will be looking forward to seeing what you create!
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

This is Anne’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your projects over the past month. It has been a real pleasure having you along with us!
Anne has used several Tim Holtz Stencils and Dies, an Etcetera tag and Tim’s wonderful Sealife stamp set to create an underwater scene.
Anna-Karin hadn’t stamped with stencils for a while and had fun stamping a background on this art journal page, using Dina Wakley’s Fractured Circles stencil. She also used the Alphabetic stencil together with texture paste, on the tag.
Barbara used a lot of Tim Holtz’s stencils to create a colorful trio of Motivation tags! Circle Collage Background by Wendy Vecchi, Sizzix Wildflowers and Paper Dolls by Tim Holtz to complete her project!
Emma used one of favourite Tim Holtz Layering stencils, Mosaic to create her own background paper for her vintage style layout. She added extra stencilling by applying Grit Paste through the Grid Dot Stencil and used the Flutter Stamp set to create butterflies as a finishing touch.
Macarena made a stenciled and textured birthday card using Tim Holtz Leafy Stencil and Metallique Paints by Prima. She made a second panel using Distress Oxide Walnut Stain Ink and Tim Holtz Type Lower Alphabet stamp.
So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!

We have 4 artists in the Designer Spotlight for the Touchy Feely Challenge!
#21 Kezzy ~ Macarena says: This mini canvas is absolutely fantastic! The reds and browns give such a fabulous vintage efect. The textures below the colors are totally stunning, I can almost feel them with my fingers. I love the dimension made with the heart and wings. The canvas looks heavy and the golden touches give it some lightness. It’s a very great job, Kezzy!
#45- Mini Chopping Board (@Marge.crafts): Andrea says- This altered mini chopping board is totally fresh and inventive from top to bottom. I love the layers of texture and the bold graphic typewriter paired with all of those delicate flowers. Stunning!
#61 Ani Creations: Lols says: this canvas captures the beauty of a family holiday to a paradise island. I love the way Ani used little seashells and sand that were so thoughtfully brought home in readiness for the canvas.
#286 Irena’s Art: Emma says: Irena has created a stunning project with so much imagination and detail! These steampunk goggles are simply amazing and a perfect interpretation of our theme!
