Painting with Pigment Powders featuring Simon Says Stamp’s PEONY BACKGROUND

Updated: Jun 6, 2023

Hello, fellow card makers! It is time for a new release at Simon Says Stamp. DEAR FRIEND has many wonderful products that are a must to check out! My favourite is a large and gorgeous red rubber stamp, PEONY BACKGROUND. I love large stamps because you get a lot of 'mileage for your buck'! The stamp can be positioned on the panel to reflect different aspects of the image. Awesome!

  • Two A2 sized panels of Canson XL Water Colour Paper were stamped using Versamark ink with Peony Background. The paper was positioned to capture different aspects of the image. The panels were coated with white embossing powder and melted with a heat tool.

  • The panels were coated well with water both front and back to help them lie flat on the surface. Glory of the Seas Gold pigment powder from Lindy's Magicals Mermaid Seashells was used to colour the background.

  • After the panel was dry, the flowers were coloured with Lindy's Magicals Mermaid Seashells in two different palettes; Cocklebells Coral or Opal Sea Oats.

  • The leaves were painted with Sea Mint Green.

  • Tips on painting with pigment powders are provided in the video tutorial.

  • Both panels were trimmed to 4" by 5 1/4".

  • One was die cut with the 3rd largest die in A2 Thin Frames.

  • The rectangle panels were mounted on white sheet foam.

  • For the panel cut with A2 Thin Frames, the frame was adhered directly to an A2 sized card base. The small foam mounted rectangle was centred in the middle of the frame.

  • The second panel was adhered to an A2 sized card base.

  • Script Hello and Big Script Hugs were die cut four times and stacked before adhering to the card.

  • The cards were embellished with Studio Katia Cafe Au Lait Pearls.
