Watercolor Postcard Midsummer Blues

Hey, my dear blog friends, welcome back for the new challenge. Our theme this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "MIDSUMMER BLUES". I was inspired to create two postcards using Simon Says Stamp Suzy's Succulents Watercolor Prints and Daniel Smith Watercolor with some sentiments from Idea-Ology Quotations Metallic Stickers.

I watercolored these two prints using Daniel Smith watercolors and a watercolor brush. I always enjoy coloring the succulents and plants with the beautiful Daniel Smith ultimate mixing hand poured watercolors. After the watercolors were dry, on the first postcard, I added some blue Distress Glitter. On the second card, I glued some blue star sequins randomly.

These two watercolored postcards were added sentiments with Tim Holtz Quotation Stickers. I outlined the postcards using a black pen. To finish off this project, I applied a layer of Micro Glaze to seal and protect the watercolors on the postcards.
