!! SIMON SAYS STAMPTEMBER BLOGHOP !!

Hello Everyone...Ready to hop?
Simon Says Stamp and Show and The Simon Says Stamp Challenge join forces to bring you a SUPER BLOGHOP and treasure hunt to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays. We're giving away a HUGE BASKET OF CRAFTING GOODIES to the Bloghop winner and three $25 Simon Says Stamp Store VOUCHERS ! The vouchers are the treasure hidden on 3 DT blogs. All you have to do is find them...!
Starts Aug. 31st at Simon Says Challenge Blog
Ends Sept. 5th at Simon Says Stamp & Show Blog.
The theme for both challenges is ANYTHING GOES. That's anything you like! A card, an ATC, a LO... endless possibilities! You'll need to hop through each blog, find the little parcel of goodies and make a note on which designer’s blog you found them. You don't HAVE to comment on all the DT blogs, but we would love to hear from you!!! If you lose your way, a full list of all the participating blogs with links and all the hop details will be available on Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the Stamp and Show Challenge blogs. You MUST enter the challenge and link your creations with the Inlinkz on the Stamp and Show Challenge to be able to win the Grand Prize or any of the $25 vouchers

If you arrived here from Marcea, you're going in the right direction! Otherwise you need to start at the beginning on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge. Now start hunting...

So what did I get up too??? Anything Goes gives me the chance to play with all the things I love. Inks, stamps, metal, findings and above all my imagination. So I indulged in my Wendy Vecchi stamps and goodies and created a hanging using an old metal tin lid!
I altered the tin with lots of Alcohol ink and then created the background using a good spray and swoosh of Color Wash, Distress Stain. Then lots of inky work using Wendy's A Form of Art and the just oh so lovely ironwork from Art from the Heart stamped in Mushroom paint.
I am always attracted to the dress form which is both an Art Part and stamp by Wendy. I love her elusive feminine qualities! I used Wild Honey Distress stain and embossed in black for extra sheen. My very favourite part are her wings! I stamped the light bulb from Steampunk onto Clearly for Art and just love the translucent look which makes everything feel more ethereal. She is nestling on layers of stitched paper, thread, fabric and wire scraps... I also added clusters of rusty metal findings which seem right at home.
 I used a scrap of Mica to stamp the word Become. It adds depth, but also kind of floats. Become, who you were meant to be. You can just read the second part subtly stamped along the edge and make out the wing nut glued to the side.

 So there she is... Just one more side shot to show off her curves and glossy wings. She is hanging on my mirror at the moment which is a good place to think about such a sentiment. I hope you can enjoy her as much as I do. Do let me know... That's my take on Anything Goes. Have you got an idea bubbling away...? Can't wait to see them all! That's me all done. Just want to say THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE!!!

From here you need to hop along to the lovely Mandy for more inspiration. (The last stop on the hop is the Simon says Stamp & Show Challenge Blog. You will need to leave a comment there with the name of the 3 blogs with hidden treasure. The comments will be moderated so you cannot see the answers). 

Wishing you some seriously Happy Hopping! Off you bounce now...

Sarah.
