I started off by pulling out the Cat-astrophe stamp set, creating a rainbow striped background some cut out stars.
I love how the sketch challenges really push me out of my comfort zone, dies and coloured cardstock have not been part of my regular crafting lately and it fun to bring them back. I hope to keep pushing myself!
I did get this one filmed and edited for you all this one on time! I hope you enjoy seeing my process!
Hey friends! Today I am sharing a card I made using Altenew and inspiration from Del and Artie!
I stamped and embossed the lovely florals on some watercolor paper, then went in with multiple layers of come gorgeous Paynes Grey!
I went in a completely different direction then Daniel did in his live video, but none the less I love the way this one came out, and now I think I need to play more with my Qor watercolours! I did film my process to share with you all!
I have a couple projects to share with you all today, but I will kick things off with this gem using the Airbrushed Flowers Stamps, dies and stencil.
I started off by inking up the background panel in a brown gradient, then adding some silhouettes of the flowers and leaves in the same brown in the background.
I then stamped out the flowers and leaves on some watercolor paper and painted them up using the Altenew Artist’s Watercolours and die cut those out layering them on the card front. Keeping the sentiment simple with a little Hello to to finish it off!
For my second card I white embossed the large floral in the Enchanted Roses stamps set on some kraft coloured cardstock.
I then kept it simple using Tea Party and Green Hills mixed with a little Green Meadows to paint them out. Kraft paper does not take watercolour as well as watercolour paper, but I kept the water to a minimum and it worked out so well! Stamping “Live” with the Limestone ink and outlining it with some white really set it off, and a small flag pannel finished off the rest of the sentiment!

Hey friends! Today I pulled out an older set from The Greeting Farm and had a play with my copics and some gouache to create a background. Also there will be more gouache and more backgrounds this was awesome!
I really LOVE how she looks flying through sky with those pretty blue, purples and pinks! Using my copics are watercolor paper, blended well but it uses a ton of ink. I wouldn’t do it all the time, but it was fun enough that I will do it again!
Also I have a process video to share how I created these pretty clouds!

Hey friends! Today I pulled out the Let’s Curl Up set from MFT Stamps and decided to remake, with a video and a different medium so I guess not remake but yeah.
So I got the honour of guesting for MFT for their December 2020 release and I fell head over heels for this fox set. I watercoloured one of them up for one of my release projects. Now I decided I had to colour up another one, this time I pulled out my Karin BrushMarkers to colour it!
I really love how these simple little cards come together, they have been a blast to make! And this fox set is so perfect and dreamy for it. Now that I am writing this post I also wanna make a blue fox… maybe there will be another card from this set lol.
I am always thrilled when I get to play along with Altenew, nothing makes me happier then when I get to play with watercolours and Altenew ALWAYS offers that opportunity with their floral images.
I embossed the image and the main part of the sentiment with rose gold embossing powder, then painted it up with pink and green. I then decided I wanted less contrast from the background and went in and did a dip dye look with the same pink colour from the floral itself.
Adding the remainder of the sentiment with black ink, I decided to take a black pen and add drop shadows to the embossed part of my sentiment.

Hey friends! Welcome to my last post and video for 2020! Just remember going into 2021, no matter what happens just Be Kind!
So I pulled out one of my favorite sets from 2020, called Be Kind from Simon Says Stamp. I used some OLD sticky back canvas (that’s not really sticky anymore) and some watercolour ground so I can use my favorite medium!
Once I watercoloured up the leaves, I then took some inktense to finish off all the little details! I do have a process video, hope you enjoy!
Hey friends! Today I pulled out an old rubber stamp designed by Rachel Anne Miller from my stash! The best part is you can pick it up as a digital image still! It is as cute as ever!
So, as you will see in the video below, I started this one off wanting to a soft pretty watercolour piece. Then decided I didn’t have enough contrast and wasnt happy with it so I finished it of with my coloured pencils.
I am however, super happy with the final outcome. And I LOVE having the texture of the coloured pencils on the card!
