Watercolor Floral Stamp - Simon's June Card Kit

I made today's card using the June 2018 Simon Says Stamp card kit. This was my first time purchasing a Simon card kit and I could not be happier!


For the first (there will definitely be more!) card that I made using this kit I decided to use the huge floral stamp in the stamp set. This stamp is one of the main reasons that I chose to purchase this kit. Sadly it is too big for my mini MISTI tool, so I had to use my old Fiskar's stamp press. I stamped it on Canson watercolor paper using Simon Says Stamp intense black ink.


To do the watercoloring I used my Reeve's watercolor set. Once I got all of the watercoloring done I cut the watercolor paper along one edge of the floral stamp. I popped this panel up on the card base using some foam tape.


The sentiment was made with two stamps from the stamp set in the kit. It says "sending lots of Love & Hugs." To finish the card I added three clear sequins and some Wink of Stella on the flowers. I had a lot of fun making this card. I find just sitting and painting for a little while so relaxing. I am not a pro at painting, but I enjoy it!
