Simon Says; Wonderful Watercolor


newchallenge

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

I am currently in the USA visiting Simon and helping to prepare for the CREATE event, are you coming? If so let me know, I would love to meet my crafty friends IRL :-)

This week the challenge is

 Wonderful Watercolor

Watercoloring is a very trendy topic right now and there are is a whole array new and exciting products entering the market! Paint Cakes, Pencils, Pens, Ink Pads and much more.  I am sure most of you will have something, if not you can try watercoloring with tea, coffee or whatever else you can think of!

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

I had lots of fun making this ;-) 


I  love the Bird Crazy Stamp and Die Set and I recently bought the Crazy Things Stamp Set to go with it, I was just itching to make a Halloween card with them! I used a combination of  Stormy Sky, Dusty Concord and Spiced Marmalade for the background, and Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade for the bird. I hung the lantern on a 'hook' and the little black kitten just jumped up onto the broomstick when I wasn't looking!


So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

What a great card and I love how it tells a story! I thought it was so clever to make the bird's little pumpkin bag hanging on a hook as if just waiting for the big day! The addition of the baker's twine and the metal "Spooky" give it a great bit of dimension. I also never would've thought to use those colors for the background, but they look incredible!
