Simon Says Stamp Fresh Bloom – One Layer Watercolored Buttercups – Pastel

Hi friends! Thank you so much for stopping by to read this blog post. I love love love the new product release from Simon Says Stamp! It is called Fresh Bloom and there are so many fabulous spring related products that I couldn’t choose which was my favorite. For my first card using the newest release, I used the Buttercups stamp set which was illustrated by the very talented Cathy Zielske. I created a very one layer card with some pastel soft watercoloring.

I started by taking a panel of watercolor paper and stamped the images from the stamp set onto is using Antique Linen Distress Ink and the sentiment in the centre using Versafine Onyx black ink and clear embossing on top of the sentiment. Using my Daniel Smiths, I got some coloring in. I finished the card off by trimming the panel to be slightly smaller than A2 size and placed it on a top folding kraft card base.

The pearls I used are from Princess Parade collection.

Sadly, I was not able to join the blog hop this time because I was busy with family commitments but I loved seeing what all the other talented crafters created. What’s your favorite from this release?

Have a lovely day folks!
