Thank You Sweetie!

Hello.
Today's card features another fun Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember collaboration set. The set this time is by Waffle Flower stamps and is called 'How We Roll'.
One of the card makers I am inspired by most is Yoonsun Hur. She creates INCREDIBLE cards, working watercolour in ways I can only dream of. Recently, she has been creating cards with loose watercolouring and I am in love… (see the ones HERE and HERE for example! Amazing, right??!!) So, with her permission, I had a go at creating something in her style. 
To make my card, I first stamped the sweets randomly on some white watercolour paper, heat embossed with white embossing powder and heat set. Then I used my Gansai-Tambi watercolours to add colour - the colours in this set are wonderfully bright and bold - just the look I wanted for my sweeties. 
Once dry, I added droplets of water and splattered it with some of the shimmery watercolour paint. I die cut with a Stitched Rectangle then adhered to a panel of black card. Next, I stamped the sentiment onto some more watercolour paper then die cut with a smaller Stitched Rectangle. I added a thread bow and a purple sequin which are held in place with a wooden clothespin.

Although I need a LOT of practice with this technique, it was really fun colouring outside the lines!

Huge thanks to Yoonsun for the daily inspiration and for allowing me to use her wonderful technique.
Check out the fab new stamp set HERE. Don't you just love the mixed font sentiments…
Bye for now.

It's great to be shown just how wonderful the results can be when we remember (and dare) to color outside the lines!

What a fun card! I too love the look of watercolor, but I really struggle with it on my cards, I think it's a control thing...LOL
