As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


Howdy!  I am so in love with how the colours  turned out for this card!  The zingy yellows and oranges in the the Kuretake Gansai water colour paints and the Clean Colour markers are so vibrant they almost make my eyes water!!  I created my watercolour background panel using the Kuretake paints on Tim Holtz cardstock.  Whilst that was drying I used the Pretty Pink Posh duo die to cut a tag but I only wanted the centre part (so it would look a bit like a trellis) so I just trimmed it down.  I stamped the butterflies from the Lawn Fawn Flutter By set in Versamark and then heat embossed it in white and finally coloured them with my Zig Clean Colour markers (what a sheer JOY they are!!).  I then just assembled the card placing some silver thread behind the frame, a few sequins dotted around and stamped the sentiment in a bold black to complete the card!

Sparkle and Shine
