Happy Birthday Simon Says Stamp

Hiya ! I hope you are all well ? I have had a little bit of a blogging break, thank you for the emails wondering where i was :) I am fine just been doing some other bits and bobs. 

Anyway onto today's post. As some of you may know it is Simon Says Stamp 7th Birthday, so sending a huge Happy Birthday to Heidi and all the team at Simon Says Stamp.

I have a few of Simons Simon & Dexter Stamp sets so I decided to use one for a birthday card for the occasion. 
I decided to do a clean and simple card with some no line water colouring. 
I stamped the Simon stamp using some Old paper Distress ink and using my Misti tool....Trust me if you don't have a Misti then you NEED one, they are amazing !...I then watercoloured him using my Spectrum Noir Aquablend pencils. 
I die cut the watercolour panel using a awesome stitched scallop die from the Sunshine Layers die set from Wplus9 (all links are below).
I then stamped the sentiment onto some Matt Black cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed using white embossing powder. 
I finished off with some sequins and popped the whole panel onto a 4x51/4 top folding card. 

This was lots of fun to colour and i am totally hooked onto watercolouring again, I used to watercolour many years ago and forgot how relaxing it is so i am excited to be rediscovering my love of it again. 

I would like to enter this into the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, the theme Is Happy Birthday ! 

I hope you all have a great day. 
Happy Crafting

  4. Thank you Lynn...i hope things are looking up for you. The no lines is one of those techniques that you just have to go for it, i found starting on images with lots of open space. I will do a video for it when i get my butt in gear x

  5. They aren't cheap here, but i have got the mini which is about £40, i was lucky and hubs got me mine. They are expensive but honestly worth every single penny xx
