Simon Saturday | Wish You Was Here.

Hey lovelies, I hope you are having a nice weekend so far ? The weather here is very warm, the birds are singing and all in all its looking beautiful. 

I am sure you have seen by now that Simon Says Stamp has a new release. It is called Good Vibes, and it has a lot of summer/vacation themed products. If you want to check the release out you can click here or on the banner below. 


I did a post the other day sharing a couple of cards using products from the new release but honestly I just couldn't put it away so used it again for today's card. If you want to check out my previous cards for the release you can find them here

One of the sets I really like is the Surf's Up stamp set, it is a fun scene building type set, but I like that you can easily use all the elements on their own. 


As soon as I saw the main stamp I thought of no line colouring, I also like that you can change how you color this, it could be beach themed or like I have and sea with the sunset. 

I really enjoyed colouring this and used my Polychromos to color it and went with a slightly different style....I think how I normally color. 


I knew I wanted to create a sunset and honestly I had no plan and just grabbed colours I thought would work. For the sea I used a mix of greens and blues to add some depth and also added some white pen for the waves. 


I totally messed up because I stamped the birds from the set and then smudged them !! it was really bad but I managed to salvage it as much as I could, I just couldn't bring myself to start again and according to hubs they just look hazy so I'm going with that lol. 


I used Neenah Desert Storm to colour onto and I decided to just add something extra Id die cut a circle out of another piece and lay it over the top, I was going to foam mount it but it looked better flat so I went with that. The sentiment is also from this release and is from the Vacation Times Stamp set. I double stamped it using my Misti and Simon's Black ink. 


A simple card which I am really happy with and I really do love this stamp set. 

What has been your favourite from this release ? Let me know in the comments below.

Also let me know if there is anything you would like me to do a post about, along as It is SSS themed I am happy to do it :) 

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you have a great day. 

Happy Crafting.
