Simon Says Stamp Stitched Florals Shaker Card


I'm having fun doing some just because stamping and decided to play along with the Simon Says Stamp 100th Flickr challenge.



I watercolored my embossed blossoms with Fossilized Amber and Twisted Citron Distress Ink, then fussy cut them and layered over a sponged and splattered panel, which I turned into a shaker.  :)  I picked up the Little Yellow Bicycle die cuts for a song at Tuesday Morning and sponged them ombre style.



For my second card, I colored my blossoms with Worn Lipstick, Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron DI, then layered with the castoff from my shaker oval.  


I sponged the LYB die cut and added a Tim Holtz sticker and Tropical die cut.  I had the most trouble using a water reservoir pen to watercolor until I learned to squeeze it as I go.  DOH!  Now I am really getting into Distress watercoloring.  :)  On the inside of this card I will stamp a sentiment stamp that says "Merry Everything, Happy Always".  Thanks for looking today and make sure to check out my Flickr pool HERE.

Hi Autumn:
Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your comment. I do believe that I've used several different comapany's rings in my Zutter (more than other just Zutter rings) - they all fit fine. I have an over-abundance of them to be honest, so if you ever get to Las Vegas, let me know! As far as the Mini Album Challenge goes, I'll try to remember to add the badge but I honestly don't think it will matter. I've added the badge in the past, but I don't think my "cutesy" style is what they're looking for. I don't win, but I like to play along where my projects fit the theme, but thank you for the heads up. I hope you're having an awesome.
Blessings,
Karen Letchworth

I love these stitched flowers, Autumn! They are both beautifully colored and happy...I especially love the top one that you made into a shaker. The
Fossilized Amber and Twisted Citron are perfect together. So glad you made these just for fun! Happy 4th and Big Hugs :-)
