Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #414


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the More Than One Die Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...Anything Goes

 We are using Stampendous products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

For my project, I am using Geraniums Cling Stamp. 


This stamp set is just the right size to cover the entire card yet it still leaves some white space. I stamped lightly with the help of MISTI and started watercoloring.

I miss you #1

 At first, I colored the petals and leaves with Zig Markers. They are so effective when it comes to color small images. I then used the new-to-me Prima Watercolor Metallic Accent to add more shine and colors.  

I miss you #3

If you have never attempted with watercolors before, this large cling stamp really is a great starting point. As you can see, each part of the geraniums is detailed and has small surface for easy coloring.

I miss you #2
 Much like the geranium in real life, this image did not fail me. I love how hardy geraniums are and the lovely blooms it give so faithfully.

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!
There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog . If you haven't subscribed by email, you may want to do so you don't miss out.

Just gorgeous, Virginia, and a promise of summer to come!

Very pretty! Geraniums (I believe the official name is pelargonium) are very common here on Crete. Because of the mild climate, they can bear flowers throughout the year. We had a lot of them in the garden of our previous home. They also tend to multiply without human interference.

Faithful is a perfect word to describe mine can attest (I have no green thumb). Your depiction of this perennial does it honor. The watercoloring is beautiful. Truly amazing card.
