I recently picked up a stunning set of watercolours from Simon Says Stamp – the Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36 colour set.  WOW – they are SO pretty to look at, I just fell in love with them.  What I really liked about this set is the addition of the metallics and pearl palettes – so lovely.  A new addition to my stamp collection is the Altenew Persian Motifs set – they are screaming to be water coloured so that’s what I did!!
