Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Celebrate Women Blog Hop!
Simon Says Stamp has a couple of new stamp sets and a die set to share with you today, celebrating women! I am using the Incredible Woman Stamp Set for a no-line coloring Polychromos floral mama card. Be sure to check out the amazing Good Job Mama Stamp Set and coordinating dies designed by Cathy Zielske, too!

I am a huge fan of no-line coloring and I'm a huge fan of Polychromos on colored cardstock. Today's card features both!
To start the design I first stamped a sentiment from the Incredible Woman Stamp Set on Hero Hues Pebble Cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. Stamping the sentiment first allows you to know exactly where to stamp the florals around the greeting.
The flowers and leaves from the Incredible Woman Stamp Set were stamped around the sentiment using the Inkon3 FadeOut No Line Coloring Ink. I worked with only 1-2 flowers/leaves at a time so the ink didn't fade too much while coloring, making it hard to see. The following Polychromos color combinations were used for the flowers and leaves:
Pink flowers: Pink Carmine, Fucshia, Pink Madder Lake, White
Purple flowers: Blue Violet, Violet, Light Ultramarine, White
Yellow flowers: Dark Chrome Yellow, Naples Yellow, Ivory
Leaves: Permanent Green Olive, May Green, White
Once the flowers were all colored I watered down some Picket Fence Distress Paint and flicked it over the background with a small paintbrush. I let the background completely air dry.
An additional sentiment from the Incredible Woman Stamp Set was stamped on Hero Hues Azalea Cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. A Nested Banner Die was used to die cut the phrase before being adhered to the card with a foam adhesive strip.
Studio Katia Frosted Hearts were adhered around the card to finish the design.
