Simon Says Stamp – Blossoming

Hello there!

It’s been a super busy week! I’m sorry for all the posts but I’m so glad you’ve stopped by today! The new Simon Says Stamp Fresh Blooms release is here! I’m sharing a labor of love using the Blossoming…I have zero experience watercoloring tiny spaces so this image definitely challenged me, which is by no means a bad thing! I hope you like it!

It’s sooo very detailed! I used a no-line coloring ink and it’s sooo difficult to see what I was painting but I tackled it by going very slow, and referencing the stamp a lot. I actually started by painting the tree trunk and limbs first. Seemed most obvious to me.

Daniel Smith Goethite Brown Ochre

Then all the leaves…

Daniel Smith Sap Green

Then using Quinacridone Magenta, I colored the smaller tulip-like flowers; Quinacridone Rose for the larger blossoms.

I stamped the sentiment towards the bottom there and matted the watercolored panel over cardstock in a matching color.

It’s difficulte to see in the image, but I also did a light wash of blue in the background and added a few Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter drops.

Thanks again for stopping by today! See you all again very soon!
