I have a surprise for you today – a new Simon Says Stamp release! From the release, I picked the new Chillin’ Frenchies for today’s card but first let us delve in and take a look at what is included in the latest release. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
So back to those cute Frenchies – I mean how adorable are they! I chose one of the images from the Chillin’ Frenchies set and stamped it in Gina K Whisper ink on cold pressed watercolour card. The light outline will give me a guide to paint and will disappear as the darker colours of the image are painted.
I find it helpful to look up an image on my phone to give me a guide for colouring and I noted that Frenchies often have that darker muzzle, light tan coat and usually a white chest area and so I used my Daniel Smith watercolours and attempted to get colours closest to those I saw on my phone. I’ve only been to one baseball match – Jennifer McGuire took a group of us to see the Cincinnati Reds and so I painted the cap in a red to match. You could go to town on the cap and add emblems and badges etc. for your local team.
I stamped part of the sentiment from the Chillin’ Frenchies set in Versafine Onyx Black ink and then combined the rest of the sentiment on a piece of hot pressed watercolour card (smooth for a clear impression) which I painted red and then stamped in clear embossing ink and white heat embossed before trimming to a banner and adding with foam adhesive. I also used foam adhesive to attach the panel to a Desert Storm card base. To accent, I added Crystal Glaze to the eyes, nose and tongue and then squeezed Dragon Scales and Cloud 9 Dream Drops from Nuvo in a triangle around the focal image.
So there you go, you can check out the whole of the new release from Simon here. I’ll be back on Friday as part of day 2 of a two-day hop to celebrate the latest release. I hope you’ll join me then.
