Watercolor Feathers with Simon Says Stamp

Hello Crafters! 

Today's card is a bit wild and crazy with color but honestly I'm good with it. 
In preparing for a girls trip this weekend I feel a bit wild and crazy myself haha


I fell in love with this set immediately. The artist who drew them for Simon Says Stamp is Stephanie Low and I'm a big fan. I've worked with her illustrations before and cannot say enough about how talented she is. You can check out her Facebook page here. 


I really wanted to do a fun colorful background to showcase her beautiful floral feathers. I picked four distress oxide colors and got to work! 


After my watercolor background was dry I stamped and masked my images to create the diagonal floral design. After I had everything stamped out I set to work with my copic markers. 

You can watch the entire card from start to finish in the video below. 


Even though I didn't love the way the colors came out on top of the distress ink overall I'm really happy with the card. Besides, the beauty of owning stamps is the opportunity to try again. Honestly, with these gorgeous stamps who wouldn't want to try again?!


Thank you so much for visiting! 
I'll be back tomorrow with another card!

  3. Always love your videos!

    I'm one of those light packers.. I have an overfull closet, but when it comes to trips, less is more! We recently did three weeks in Scotland with carry on bags only.

  4. Such a great card. I have never thought of stamping over Oxides and then using Copics until I saw you do it and I have to say, I really like it. Have fun on your girls trip, even if you do over pack! LOL

  6. Fabulous technique with those inks, must have a try at it myself. Brilliant colour work as always my dear. Thanks. Kelly you enjoy your laid back, comfy time with your girlfriends, unfortunately my ocd doesn't allow for throwing clothes in randomly but at least the clothes I pack contain lots of p.j's. Hope you're well in yourself, chin up girl, I worry about you, which is weird as I don't really know you but that's the way I roll.x
