Coloring for Fun + Simon’s Encouraging Words Release

Hey everyone! I’m stopping by today with a quick card I wanted to share with you that features one of the newest Suzy’s Watercolor Cards in Simon’s Encouraging Word’s release – and also one of the new stencils!

I was just relaxing one evening and doing some just-for-fun coloring of this cute pineapple. These watercolor cards make it really easy to break out some supplies and just spend time coloring. It’s a great way to decompress!

I used my Zig Clean Color Felt brush markers to color in the pineapple and used them as a watercolor medium. The brush I used to blend the markers was the Simon Says Stamp medium watercolor brush.

If you are new to felt markers, I have a couple videos below that you might want to check out! One is a comparison video – showing the differences between Felt and Real Brush Zig markers – and the other is a set of cards I made using the image I colored in that comparison video!

This pineapple from the Suzy Watercolor cards could have been used as-is. But I love being able to cut them out and use them on a card; isn’t it fun to stretch your supplies??

To finish off this card, I used the new Carolyn stencil and blended on some Melon ink onto a melon-y colored card based (yes I made up “melon-y” LOL!). I also stamped a sentiment from Simon’s Sea You Soon stamp set in Melon and Dark Chocolate inks. To embellish the card, I sprinkled a few Moonshine sequins around the pineapple.

I really enjoyed making this card by simply taking the time to relax with the watercolor process and then later turn it into a card. These watercolor cards make it really easy to do so!

I hope you enjoyed this quick little post… if you are looking for more Simon Says Stamp Encouraging Words release inspiration, be sure to check out the video I shared featuring an in-lay die cutting technique using scraps, or the watercolor galaxy video for the Simon release blog hop. And you can also get lots more inspiration over at the Simon inspiration gallery for the release.

Thanks for visiting with me today; I’ll see you again soon!
