[Simon Says Stamp] Watercoloring Cosmos Background

Hi, friends!
Spending relaxing Sunday, I made a watercolor card today.
The whole scene was created from one stamping of cling background stamp from Simon Says Stamp, which is Cosmos Background.

I stamped the image using versafine onyx black ink, then watercolored it using Daniel Smith paints.

Colors : Red Blossoms (Quinacridone coral, Alizarin crimpson, Perm alizarin crimpson), Violet blossoms (Quinacridone violet, Carbazole violet, Imperial purple, Phthalo turquoise), Stems ( Sap green, Undersea green), Orange blossoms (Organic Vermilion/Quinacridone sienna/ Quinacridone burnt orange), Center for blossoms (Quinacridone gold) , Background (Burnt Umber)

When watercoloring, I first colored in light using more water , then gave darker shades using deeper colors and/or less water.

After finishing coloring, I added a slip of vallum paper, then adhered Script Thanks Wafer die cuts on it. Final touch was adhering some Sparkling Clear Sequins here and there.

Thanks for reading this post.
Have a great day.


  1. Marge this is a masterpiece! LOve that you've used different shades of color for your blooms... and of course that PERFECT slip of vellum for your sentiment!

  2. 화사하고 너무 예쁘네요. 가을 꽃이지만 봄 느낌도 나고 좋아요!
