Coneflowers (Echinacea) bring such rich, opulent colours to late summer, and I couldn’t resist having a go at capturing them using an embossing folder from the new Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember release. This blog post is part of a blog party to celebrate STAMPtember; you’ll find all the details below.

how to use an embossing folder as an easy painting guide
The joy of using an embossing folder to guide watercolouring is that it is so easy and forgiving. The deeply embossed lines make it clear where to paint, and yet if you go over the raised areas, it doesn’t matter. The texture and depth of the design are there, with the watercolouring simply emphasising those details.
As mentioned above, this post is part of a blog party to celebrate the STAMPtember release from Simon Says Stamp. So what is a blog party? Well, artists from all over the world have gathered together to celebrate the new release. The fun part is that it is almost like a treasure hunt. Each person taking part in the hop has been randomly assigned a code which gives great offers on a range of stamps, dies and other products.
