Hello everyone, today I’m taking part of a blog hop – Giveaway to share ideas and inspiration with the latest Simon Says Stamp release.
Have a look at thewhole release here!
I fell in love with “Oh Hello There Wafer Die”designed by Kristina Werner for Simon Says Stamps and I make 4 projects to share with you today
To make this card, I stamped the flowers from SSS Friends of Life Stamp Set with Clear Versamark Ink and Nuvo Fine Detail embossing powder and I applied 2 watercolor washes: 1. Lapiz Lazuli Genuine, 2. Blue Apatite Genuine Watercolor paints by Daniel Smith. I stamped the leaves using Faded Jeans Distress Ink and I use a water brush over the Distress Ink to soften the color.
I also applied Iridescent Sunstone Daniel Smith ‘s Watercolor paint to the center of the flowers. I love the contrasts between the dark blue shades and this soft peach color.
I wanted to add dimension the word “hello”, so I die cut it 3 times form navy blue cardstock and I glue them all together, then I applied Nuvo Crystal Glaze all over and allowed to dry overnight.
For the card below I stamped the image from Floral Bliss Stamp Set,on 300grams cold – cold pressed watercolor paper with Simon Says Stamp Black ink and I applied color with Zigs ( Kuretake Clean Colour real Brush).
I used Craft Perfect Black Mirror Cardstock to die cut the sentiment ( Oh hello there)
I also used a gold watercolor paint from Kuretake Starry Colours to add gold accents to the flowers, it is very hard to show in pictures but I love the golden shimmer it adds to the projects.
Below a very simple watercolor composition. I used the darker blue pen, a dark green and also a black pen from Nuvo Brush Scrip pens ( water- based) and I apply the pen directly on dry watercolor paper. Then I used a Silver Velvet brush #2 to wash the color.
I also add a blue watercolor paint by Daniel Smith and Schmincke: Horadam Watercolour Paint: 5ml: Titanium Opaque White to add light.
To create that beautiful stitched frame around the edge of the card I used Wonky Rectangles Wafer Dies
I couldn’t resist making a super easy Christmas project too using also Swirling Star Trail Wafer Dies by Simon Says Stamps. I sie dut readily the 3″ circle die cut to create the tag below.
