Hello Friends, How is your weekend going? Those of you from the US did you have a good Thanksgiving? Everyday of the year I am thankful for you all and feel so blessed.
On another note …
Today Simon Says Stamp is having a blog hop to celebrate “Suzy’s Classical Christmas Watercolor Prints” hot off the press and I am super excited to be part of it. I have always enjoyed watercoloring Suzy’s beautiful illustrations and this Holiday release is guaranteed to get you in the spirit of the season. Yes please!
If you are coming from Suzy’s blog you are in the right place.
I already feel the pressures that the holiday season can bring especially because I am not a planner and feel the pressure to try and take advantage of sales like Black Friday, Cyber Monday and so on. Taking time to do some watercoloring can instantly relax you & bring back the joy of the season.
Speaking of great sales … SSS has been rocking some good ones! Thank You Simon.

Adding highlights with colored pencils, a white gel pen and glossy accents can really enhance your watercoloring. Chameleon pencils are what I like to add highlights with if I am watercoloring or when I am using my copic markers.
Can you find the two little nooks that I missed with my dark green colored pencil? I will be adding that when I finish this post lol. This is the permanent fine tip marker I used to outline the image and the greeting.
In a palette I swiped my distress ink to watercolor with and added a squeeze of this for a some holiday shimmer on my watercoloring. Glossy accents were added to the berries and parts of the poinsettias center.
I love how each card is different and unique! Absolutely beautiful! Thank you Suzy for always inspiring me with your illustrations and thanks to Simon for printing them on bright white watercolor paper.
I know this isn’t from the new holiday release but, I wanted to wanted to show you another way to add dimension that I previously watercolored with Suzy’s Fruit Puns .
Don’t be afraid to cut the card and add some foam tape to one area. I have an arrow where I cut the card keeping the greeting in tack.
GIVEAWAY! I have a $30 gift certificate to the Simon Says Stamp Store to giveaway. Winner will be drawn from my blog comments & will be announced on my blog on November 28th. Good luck!
Next on the hop is the talented Kelly Latevola and sweet friend.
Thanks for your visit today and see you soon. Hugs, Kathy
