Here’s a look at the card I have colored and created for the blog hop! While this card appears extremely detailed, and even perhaps a bit challenging, I’m here to tell you that it is really quite easy! If you watch the video below, I’ll walk you through the steps and show you that YOU can do this too.

All of the flowers in my scene are from our Simon exclusives, More Spring Flowers and Even More Spring Flowers. I stamped each one with colored inks that coordinate with the watercolor shades I planned on using. Speaking of watercolors, I used Prima’s watercolor confections. However, you can use whatever watercolors you would like for this technique.

I’ve needed thank you cards lately, so  I’m adding more to my stash by using our Simon exclusive, Big Thanks word die, which is paired with a supporting sentiment from My Favorite Things’ Grateful for You stamp set. I cut the thanks word from Tonic Studios mirror cardstock.

Please be sure to watch the video to see how creating a card like this can actually be rather simple! And keep on reading for more details on this fantastic, 30 Day Coloring Challenge blog hop!

  1. This is such a beautiful card! I actually initially thought it was done with coloured pencils… what a lovely soft look you’ve achieved with watercolours! Must be all those layers you added!

  2. I still don’t think I could create a card as gorgeous as yours… even after watching the video. Such a work of art!

  3. Nina’s colouring blew me away. I love these stamp sets that Nina used, will have to go into my wishlist.

  4. just luv no-line coloring. thanks for the fun tip to stamp with an ink equivalent to the base color. I’m going to try that next! beauiful card!

  5. Nina this card is so colorful and beautiful Thought it was a bought card when I first saw it but even better.

  6. Beautiful card, as always! I so enjoy watching you color. I have not tried the no line coloring yet; you make it look so easy.

  7. A wonderful card. I don’t know though, I’m such a newbie at this, I just don’t think my card would come out looking like yours! 😊

  8. Your card is beautiful! I thought it looked great after you water colored it but then you added the pencil detail and it really made a difference. So pretty.

  9. This card is stunning! You made it look so easy to watercolor and then fill in details with colored pencils. I’m going to give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration!

  10. WOW! Stunning! So So pretty. Wish I had Nina’s mad colouring skills to be able to duplicate this card.

  11. This is so incredibly beautiful. I love seeing the coloring process. I so often follow the stop-before-you-ruin-it philosophy so I don’t achieve the depth and beauty you have achieved here. I thank you for the video.

  12. Just stunning! You make it look so easy but your skill level is wayyyyy above mine I’m thinking! Thank you for the great tips!

  13. Wow! Stunning! Thanks for the tips – I haven’t been brave enough to try no-line coloring of any variety.

  14. Nina, I just saw your fun summer post and now you wow me with this wonderful flower stamp coloring job! You have amazing talent and I think I have said it before but you could sell these and make a fortune! Your cards are spectacular and I am in awe that you stamped each flower in a different color. Looking forward to watching that on the treadmill tonight! Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us!!!

  15. Ok, I am blown away by how gorgeous your watercoloring is. I don’t even have words to express just how the finished image touches my heart and makes me happy. I doubt I will ever be able to paint like that, but I will say that the video did make it look easier. Not easy, just easier

  16. Your card is so amazing. I love how you say it’s easy. I will be watching your video to see if it can help make water coloring easier for me!

  17. I never would have thought to color my flowers in the colors of ink that I was going to watercolor them, what an awesome idea!! I always thought of no-line watercoloring as using a light ink! I love this idea so much better because you can actually see the ink!! I bought the watercolor palette you suggested for my Prima’s and Jane Davenports and they fit perfectly and my hubby cut a piece of wood to put in the top so they don’t move around, instead of using washi tape. I love my new palette. The only ones that wouldn’t fit in were my Shimmering Lights and the extra metallics and all the duplicates I put into an extra palette. So thank you for the awesome suggestion. I love the card and hope to do something like that. I love those Simon stamps!! Thanks for sharing!

  18. Hi tо every , for the reason that I аm reɑlly keen of reading thіs webpage’ѕ post to be updated regularly.
    It includes pleasant data.

  19. Your colouring is amazing! Your card is gorgeous! I wish I had more patience when watercolouring! Xx
