Simon Says Stamp Good Vibes blog hop - Giveaway

June 21, 2018


Hello everyone, welcome to Simon Says Stamp!  Good Vibes - Blog Hop - Giveaway! what a fun release we are celebrating.

For today, I used two new fantastic stamp sets called  Vacation Time,  Summer Cuddly Critters and  I also used Summer Cuddly Critters die set.  

You defo must see this release. Click here to see all the products! 




You can also see my 1 - minute videos related to this post on Instagram, a new option for people who like speed like me lol.

Ok so I used Smooth  Bristol  Paper and I stamped the images and sentiments using Simon Says Stamp Black Ink ( very dark ink) . For no-line colouring, I used Antique Linen  Distress ink.

I used Zigs, Gold metallic watercolour paint and I  also applied a couple of old and super fun techniques for the backgrounds called: straw painting and bubble painting.
After colouring,  I use white watercolour paint to highlight some areas of the images. Another way to do this is to leave the space we want to highlight blank, so I do not add colour to that area. When the colour around the blank area is dry I then use a water brush to move a little bit of the pigment into it so it doesn't look so white.
I also added a wobble action spring .. it makes this card even cuter.

  8. The straw and bubble techniques and the Summer Cuddly Critters stamp set you have used in creating these two fabulous cards are so much fun and the colours and designs you have chosen are the epitome of Summer holidays and bring to mind the paddling pool we all had in our childhood gardens!

    After watching your demonstration, I will be trying the straw technique as it looks so easy but gives such great effects!
