Simon Says Stamp – Best Friend Ever

Hi, Friends!

Welcome to Day 1 of the Simons Says Stamp Love You and Love You, Too Release Blog Hop! I’m sharing a card using the Best Friend Ever set by Simon Says Stamp. Be sure to check out the full line up of the blog hop and tomorrow’s blog hop for all the inspiration. If you prefer, you can also see all the inspiration on the galleries for the Love You and Love You, Too releases!

There are four pretty flower clusters on this 6″ x 8″ stamp set and I’m using one of them today to watercolor.

I stamped the image 3 times in the arrangement that you see but on a watercolor panel and painted the flowers in blue. When I was done, I painted the foliage and then added some gray to the centers. To put back the details, I hand drew them with a writing pen.

I then die-cut the watercolor panel with the coordinating die and because they were stamped on the watercolor panel where I wanted my arrangement, it was easy to put them back where I intended them to be after trimming down a separate panel of fog cardstock that I ink-blended with white pigment ink and splattered.

I finished by attaching my images, stamping my sentiment and adding embellishments.

I hope you like this card! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
