Hey everyone. It’s time for the Simon Says Stamp Happy and Joyful release. It’s an amazing release and I have a quick card to share with you. The stamp set I’m using is the new Simon Says Stamp Lisianthus stamp. Isn’t this flower beautiful! As soon as I had this stamp in my hands I knew I wanted to watercolor this image.
To begin, I heat embossed the image onto watercolor paper. Next it was time to add color. My watercolor today is from a cute shop on Etsy called IUILE. I used her watercolors to color my Hero Arts MMH kit a few months back. You can take a peek at it here. The colors are just so gorgeous. For just a touch more of shimmer, I incorporated some new watercolors I purchased from Amazon. (Disclaimer: I REALLY struggled with these watercolors on their own however I will try again to see if I can get the hang of them.)
Once I had everything watercolored, I stamped a birthday sentiment from the set. I LOVE how large these sentiments are in the kit. Plus you get a variety of fonts and that’s a total bonus!
Adhering this panel to a black layering paper, it really made the flower bloom. Onto a white card base it went and this card was done.
I hope you score some really great products from the Simon Says Stamp Happy and Joyful release. You can also check out some of my other cards using Simon Says Stamp products by clicking the link. Have a great day everyone and I’ll see you back here soon.
