I have created a card featuring Stamping Bella's Fiona Loves Flowers which I have coloured with my copics. I literally had to dust off my poor neglected copics as I haven't used them for a long time & I did enjoying having a play with them again.

 The pretty patterned paper is by Moda Scrap & is called Fly & Scrap, the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps Handwritten Borders stamps set & has been stamped using Simon's Black Pigment Ink. For my bling I have added some clear gems & I've also sparkled all the flowers on my image using a Tonic Aqua Shimmer Pen.

I have created a card featuring All The Thanks Stamps Set from the new STAMPtember® release along with Simon's beautiful Look For The Rainbows Stamps Set. The Look For The Rainbows Stamps Set is this months stamps set in Simon's September Card Kit Of The Month, and can also be purchased separately.

I began by stamping the Big Thanks sentiment & some cute rows of different lengths music stamps from Simon's Love Always stamps set onto kraft card stock in Simon's Black Pigment Ink, and then added some flicks of White Gouache to it and set it aside to dry.

I stamped and heat embossed a variety of flowers, leaves & stems onto Canson XL watercolour paper using Simon's white fine detail embossing powder & then water coloured them using a combination of PrimaAltenew watercolour pans. I then fussy cut my images and used my bone folder to shape them to add a little dimension before adhering them to my card.
