Celebrate Dad Watercolor Cards - Simon Says Stamp Celebrate You Release

Good morning! This morning I'm sharing a couple more cards with the SUPER fun NEW release from Simon Says Stamp called Celebrate You - these feature this release's fabulous Suzy's Watercolor Prints - Celebrate Dad! I love these for coloring on the go - they work great for Copics and Colored Pencils as well, but I used my Daniel Smith watercolors for these. I took these out on my porch to color and keep my husband company one afternoon earlier this week when he was out there working on his laptop.

 This first one I colored with super soft colors, and also added some splatters. Once the watercolor dried, I also added Tonic Crystal Glaze to the silver part of the tools. Hard to see in the photos, but adds such fun shine in real life!

This second one is one of my favorites from the collection - I just took my time coloring this one and adding lots of depth and shading, but keeping the colors fairly traditional. I added a few details with a bit of Copic Opaque White medium to finish this one off.

I trimmed both of the panels down just slightly, then mounted on a soft Fog cardbase to finish. I love how easy these are to create cards with - ad it's so fun to add your own little finishing touches as well!

  1. Coloring on the go is the best! And pre printed sheets are ever so helpful!
