Star Gazing Friends! - Simon Says Stamp

Good afternoon lovely peeps!


This week our challenge is

The design team are featuring

Penny Black logo
products on our cards this week.
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.
Do you use Instagram?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

I have created a card featuring Penny Blacks Star Gazing Friends clear stamp which I have stamped using Ink On 3's Fadeout Ink Pad & water coloured using Altenew watercolour pans.

 To create the background I blended Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch & Black Soot Distress Inks onto Canson XL watercolour paper & I then added some  white gouache. Once dry I added a wash of water over the top to really get the colours moving and blend them well, & once dry I added some Simply White Crystal Drops & splats of white gouache.

The sentiment is from Simon's Winter Scene stamps set & has been stamped in Simon's Black Pigment Ink.

 Other supplies used -

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

I have another card to share that I created 2 or 3 weeks ago and have forgotten to share!

This card features Colorado Craft Company beautiful Big & Bold Missing You Peony Stamp Set which  have stamped onto Canson XL Watercolour paper using Ink On 3 Fadeout Ink Pad & water coloured with Altenew watercolour pans.  

I coloured this pretty image over a couple of days as it's so big & I teamed it with a sentiment from Simon Says Stamps Leafy Frames stamps set which I stamped in Simon's Black Pigment Ink.

I simply added one of Simon's cute Flickering Butterflies, Hero Arts clear gems, Simply White Nuvo Crystal Drops and a few flicks of left over paint to embellish.
