Hello there, so I got my May Simon Says Stamp Card kit and I was having alove hate relationship with it. I loved the new sequins and the Pink Fresh Studio Inspirational Stickers but just wasn’t feeling the stamps this time. I think they are cute and great for doing a set of small lunchbox notes but I just couldnt get into the plaid either. On top of that there were already a large number of ideas for the kit and it seemed as though everyone got theirs sooner than me…:-( so how was I going to come up with something fresh for you all?
Well the answer lay in those Inspirational stickers. Now usually I am drawn in by the stamps and love stamping but I am currently also taking an online card classes watercolor class and am LOVING it and there were watercolor splashes onthe inspirational quotes! So I scrapped my plan to do a paper pieced overlay of the stamped images and got painting! What you see above is the result, and the video below shows how I did the watercolor washes as well as played with all of the different elements to get an arty little card that could also be framed for a desktop or wall. Lemonade from Lemons!
I ordered some new stamps and will be back soon with a special project using some of those. Enjoy the process, and as usual the supplies I used are listed below the video. Cheers. Lee Ann
