Hi Stampers!

If you missed the winners post for challenge #15, you can check it out right here.

We’re excited to revisit a theme we did for challenge #4. It’s such a popular medium right now that we wanted to offer it to you again for our 16th Flickr challenge. Are you ready to do some WATER COLORING?!

We want you to create a card or project using watercolors. You can use it on your main, stamped or die-cut image, on just a portion of a panel, or on your entire background. You can use any type of water coloring, such as traditional watercolors, Distress Inks, Sprays or Markers mixed with water, a Gelato/water mix, or watercolor pencils. As long as there is water coloring somewhere on your project, you're good to go!

There’s a fantastic video that Shari Carroll posted on our blog a week ago, where she shows 10 different ways to watercolor. You can find that video here. Shari shares lots of tips for successful water coloring. We recommend watching it if you haven’t seen it yet!

Here is a reminder of the rules:
--- Each card or project created for the challenge must use at least one Simon Says Stamp exclusive brand image, such as their stamps, stencils or dies. This is an important rule. Simon sponsors this group and these challenges, so it's only fair that players use Simon's very own products.

--- Please upload cards to your Flickr photostream and tag them with the appropriate tag name. For this week's challenge it will be SSSflickrchallenge#16 - all one word with no spaces. Tagging photos is easy - just find the "add tag" area, below and to the right, when looking at any photo in your photostream, click it, add the tag, then press enter.

--- Please mention in your photo-description, underneath your photo, that your card or project is for the challenge. Also, please let us know which SSS exclusive products you used.

--- Don't forget to add your photo to the SSS Flickr group. If you don’t do this, your card may not be seen!

--- Projects for the challenges must be newly created.

--- Submit as many projects as you like for each challenge.

--- You can add your card or project to no more than two other challenges.

--- If you share projects made for our challenges on your blogs too, please share the inspiration graphic in your post (if there is one) and you must add a link back to this discussion thread/challenge.

--- We'd love it if you could take a small amount of time, after uploading your card or project to the group, to comment on a few other group members' photos. We all love to receive encouragement for our creations!

You have until Thursday, 9:00am EST April 16, 2015 to upload your cards/projects to the SSS Flickr group. The random winners will be announced shortly thereafter, on the same day, in a new discussion thread.

There will be TWO winners again this time, randomly selected from all the entries. Each winner will receive a $25.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp online store!


We love water coloring so we’re excited to see what wonderful ideas you come up with for this challenge! Have fun!

Happy stamping and a very Happy Easter!
The Simon Team
