Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit & GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone,

I'm popping by to share the latest Simon Says Stamp Card Kit: Favorite Peeps and a card I made with it. 

This month's kit is perfect for Easter and all things Spring! It includes two adorable Suzy Plantamura pictures printed on Distress Watercolor Cardstock for you to colour, a sweet Peeps-themed stamp set with matching dies, some fun Simon Says Stamp Sunshine Mix Sequins, cute Echo Park Spring 6x6 Papers, one random Bright Distress Crayon, and some fabulous Spring-coloured Simon Says Stamp Cardstock.

Here it is:
Here's the card I'm sharing today using one of the adorable Suzy Plantamura images:


I couldn't wait to try the new Distress Crayon that came in my kit (mine was Mustard Seed) and started colouring this sweet little chick right away. I discovered that if you want a more watercoloured look and better blending with the Distress Crayons it helps to wet your watercolour paper first. The neat thing about these crayons is that I was able to get a watercoloured look on the chick's body and use the the crayons straight for more intensity on her beak and legs. I used my Gansai Watercolors to paint the rest of this sweet image and once dried I trimmed down the sides, tucked some of the adorable Echo Park Spring 6x6 Paper behind it, and adhered it to a notecard made from Simon's Ivory Cardstock.

Supplies:
