Because Intense Watercolor Makes Me Happy

Hello, folks! It is a glorious rainy day here in Boston! That is okay, though, because we have a brand new Simon Says Stamp Challenge for you today and I pulled out some intense watercolor for my card! Yup. That's right, watercolor doesn't have to be soft and subtle. It can be all about the color! Our challenge this week is to create Thinking of You cards and the Design Team is showing of Hero Arts products this week! You don't have to use Hero Arts to play along, but if you've got some, we'd love to see what you do with them!

Thinking of You


I created this awesome background using a KP Hero Arts background stamp, embossed in white on watercolor paper. I then loaded on the warm, fall color tones in random fashion for a happy, inviting look. I stamped and embossed the sentiment on vellum and wrapped it around the background panel so it would stand out, but not take away from the colors at all.

Thinking of You by Jennifer Ingle #JustJingle #HeroArts #SimonSaysStamp #PinkFreshStudio


A simple puffy sticker from Pinkfresh Studio finishes off the card with just a little added texture and visual interest.



Now it's YOUR turn! Create something fabulous inspired by the Thinking of You theme and link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store! You know you want that voucher! Get creating! And... hey, here's a wild and crazy idea... after you link it up your photo, pop that card into an envelope, slap a stamp on it and send it to a friend!

Have a Happy!
