Hi everyone!

We thought it would be really fun to use the same theme as the SSS Wednesday challenge again and we hope you agree! So . . . . . Flickr challenge #77 is, "Splatter It!"

**IMPORTANT** Please remember though, if you're playing in the Wednesday challenge, you can play in our Flickr challenge too, with the same project, BUT only if you've used one of our very own exclusive products on your creation. If you have any questions about this, please don't hesitate to ask in a comment below!

We invited a couple of guest designers to inspire you this time but neither one of them were able to work it out with their busy summer schedules. So we asked Barb Engler if she could share some of her recent cards with you to help get your creative juices flowing and to show you the different ways to use splatters on your cards. Thank you, Barb, for filling in to guest design on such short notice! ♥

Here are some examples of how Barb used splatters on her cards. You can click each one for a larger view.

You can use Distress Inks for your splatters, like in these first two cards from Barb.

You Are Amazing by bdengler4 (Barb Summers Engler)


You can also try using a white gel pen for splatters like Barb did on this Christmas card.

Christmas Greetings Poinsettias by bdengler4 (Barb Summers Engler)


On this next one, Barb actually used the tips of Copic markers for her splatters.

Spring! by bdengler4 (Barb Summers Engler)


And one more where she used watercolors to add a bit of splatter.

We hope this gives you an idea of how many different ways there are to add splatters to your projects! We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here's 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#77 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.

--- 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 three 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 also please add a link back to this discussion thread.

--- 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 EDT, August 17, 2017 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, randomly selected from all the entries. Each winner will receive a $25.00 gift card to the Simon Says Stamp online store!

We're on Instagram!

Do you use Instagram? If so, please add the tag, #sssflickrchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them there too! (When using this tag for Instagram, remember it is WITHOUT the challenge #)

We're so excited to see all that splattering! Don't be afraid to try it - it's so fun and will add a wonderful effect to your projects!

Happy crafting,
The Simon team
