Simon Says Stamp – Beautiful Bouquet

Hi, Friends!

I’m excited to share today’s project with you from the Simon Says Stamp To The Moon Release because it’s illustrated by my friend Emily Midgett. This is her debut for Simon Says Stamp and I’m excited for her! The Beautiful Bouquet stamp set is a 6″ x 8″ set and the image is large and barely fits a 5″ x 7″ canvas as you’ll see in my card today.

I started by stamping and embossing my image over a piece of watercolor cardstock using embossing ink to emboss the image with gold embossing powder. I love some no-line watercoloring, but when I’m in a hurry (or don’t want to spend 6 hours painting), I like to emboss first, as I can move a bit faster and not worry about pigment going into unwanted areas.

I used Daniel Smith watercolors and painted the flowers first, then the foliage and berries.

Daniel Smith watercolors used:
Rose:  Pyrrol Crimson
Anemone:  Permanent Violet, Neutral Tint
Hydrangea:  Carbazole Violet, Quinacridone Gold
Leaves:  Hooker’s Green
Eucalyptus: Sap Green
Berries:  Mayan Dark Blue

After painting, I splattered my card with white paint. Then, I matted my panel over a piece of Fog cardstock. To finish, I embossed sentiments from the So Much Love stamp and die set and centered them in the lower quadrant of my card. I hope you like it! I love that Emily’s flowers are loose and ruffled and I love supporting her. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  1. Oh, Caly, all of your cards are fabulous, but it’s a special day when you give us a watercolor beauty. It’s like dessert after a great dinner. 😁 I know it’s time consuming, but you’re so good at it. 💜 I know that you’re busy and have your hands full, but, if you ever have a chance, pull up Doodlewash. com My friend, Charlie, lives there in Kansas City, MO. His blog is all about watercoloring. He started World Watercoloring Month every July. I know a lot of your work belongs to the companies, but he allows watercolor artists like you to showcase their artistry and work as well as tell their journey into watercoloring. I know you’re busy already, but your work and talent is so awesome! 💕 I love to watercolor, but being badly injured limited my time and life for so many things, but I started following Charlie’s blog in hopes of learning and trying to do more. Like with my friend, Caly, I met my friend, Charlie, through his blog. He’s a major sweetheart. I know you’re busy, but if you ever get a chance. I think Charlie would love to see your art. He’s super sweet! It’s just a thought, my friend. 💜
