Well I don’t know about you, but I’m already wishing it was April or May! I’m not a big fan of winter months, not so much because of the cold, but mostly because of the dark short days. So what to do when you need a little pick me up, but to colour some flowers.
For those of you that saw my mini haul video a few weeks back, you will have seen this beautiful set from Simon Says Stamp – there’s nothing I love more than a gorgeous floral stamp – except for a gorgeous floral stamp that requires no masking! This one is called Sketched Flowers, isn’t it beautiful?
This set was actually part of the September kit from SSS but I was away and wasn’t able to purchase it. Fortunately they released the flower set separately so I was able to pick that up during the Black Friday sale – woo hoo!
So, it was stamped in Memento across a Neenah panel and I merrily coloured away with my Copics. I was experimenting with colours – muted greens, soft bluey purples and some splashes of brighter blue – I love how it came out and it makes a lovely change from pinks (my go-to floral colours!)
I trimmed the panel down and matted it onto a top folding Neenah card base and then die cut the SSS Small Hello twice from black cardstock and stacked them up. This was adhered with wet adhesive and I also added some Majestic Fusion sequins from Studio Katia to embellish.
Yes, the colouring takes a while, but it’s a relaxing process and I enjoyed trying some different colours. The only downside to that is that I now want to buy more Copic colours – there are so many beautiful colours out there to try!
Have a great weekend everyone, I hope you get some crafting time in! Thanks for stopping by as always.
