Simon Says Stamp – Lavender Garden

Hi Friends!

We’re celebrating the Hello Beautiful release on Instagram with an IG Hop! I always blog my cards so I wanted to be sure to document it here as well. I watercolored a set called Lavender Garden and it’s a gorgeous set – though I didn’t use the lavender sprigs. I like watercoloring more open flowers and thought maybe the poppies were a better choice to showcase the set – but it’s nice to have options!

It’s weird to say – but I’ve never watercolored inanimate object before. I’ve only watercolored florals – I don’t know why watercoloring critters seems intimidating. Now that I’ve watercolored a watering can, it doesn’t seem so bad! I stamped with a light ink and watercolored with Daniel Smith Watercolors.

I used Permanent Violet and Payne’s Gray for the flowers, Hooker’s green for the foliage, and Shadow Violet for the watering can (it’s gray, but has a purple tint to it). I added details back into the floral centers using a black writing pen. It really gives it more interest and depth. For the background, I used Payne’s Gray to draw a grounding, then added a blue background above using heavily watered down French Ultramarine Blue watercolor.

I attached my images, then splattered it with white and black paint before attaching my embossed sentiment. I adhered everything with foam adhesive to give it lots of dimension before embellishing with some iridescent sequins.

I hope you liked this! Be sure to check out the Instagram Hop – everyone will be linked in each post. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  1. Absolutely beautiful, Caly. You always make beautiful cards and you make watercoloring look easy, which it turns out is not easy for me. 😂😂😂 We’re back in the 80’s, Caly. Come sun tan with us! 😎😎😎
