Hi Friends! Please join me in a big welcome back to Kelly Rasmussen as a especial guest on our blog today! Be sure to read on to learn more about this fun card and enjoy!
Hello, crafters! I’m so happy to be back as a guest on the Simon Says Stamp blog! Today I’ve got a card to share that use lots of Simon Says Stamp and Hero Arts goodies! I didn’t have a plan in mind when starting this card, so I wasn’t sure exactly where it was going, but in the end everything fell into place. :)
I started out with a piece of watercolor paper that I taped to a solid surface. One of my favorite watercolor papers is the Canson Montval — it seems to work so well with any watercolor mediums! I stamped the sunflower image from the Simon Says Stamp Summer Flowers set using Antique Linen Distress ink. Then I used various colors of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color in the image. To avoid any colors bleeding together on the petals, I jumped around and colored petals that weren’t touching. Then once a petal was dry, I could go in a color the next petal. Once the flower was done, I created a mask of the flower using Inkadinkadoo Stamping Mask Paper, placed it over the flower and then stamped and colored my green leaves.
This card showed me that I don’t always have to have a plan in mind before starting a card, just grab one product to start and then go from there! :)
