The Greeting Farm – Preview Day 2

Hey everyone! Welcome back to day 2 of previews for The Greeting Farm!

Today we have a lovely floral set to share with you all called Grateful For You!

I used this as an opportunity to play with more of my black watercolour paper, and some more opaque watercolours. This has sense lead to me purchasing coloured gouache. I stamped them out with white ink, then painted them up using pink and green from Designs by Rachel Beth handmade paints. I then retraced all my stamped lines with a white Posca pen!

Fussy cutting everything out then adding it to a white card pannel. A little doodling and some sequins and this card is complete!

Hope to see you tomorrow for day 3!

The Greeting Farm – Preview Day 1

Hey all! It is time to kick off previews for the November release from The Greeting Farm!

Starting things off is a new set of Miss Anya’s, this set is called Miss Anya Darling! All the images are just that, darling!

I coloured her up with my copic markers, I haven’t been reaching for them a ton lately but I had a blast with them here!

Going back to my simple soft washy background made this one perfect!

Drawing in a Scene – The Greeting Farm

Hey all! I am here today sharing some The Greeting Farm inspiration!

I love how The Greeting Farm stamps are versatile, and just because they come out during a certain time of the year, doesn’t mean they can only be used for that. A prime example of this isĀ Holiday Anya 6! She is all dressed up and cozy, with what I think was suppose to be a mug of hot chocolate. But in my scene it is not this at all!

I added a fun scene behind, by drawing it in in pencil then lining it with a copic multiliner. Colouring it all in with bright colours gave it a great summer feel!

New Watercolors! Stoneground Paint Co.

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing a new palette, 8 new watercolours. From Stoneground Paint Co.

It is a gorgeous, flourescent palette! I am over the moon with these new neon colours! Yes they will not be lightfast, like the traditional colours. But these are super fun for making cards, sketch books, art work that is getting scanned in.

They also look super pretty on the black watercolour paper! So bright and vivid even with their transparency you can see them!

I do have a video sharing all these colours. Remember the photos do take some of the vividness of these paints away! But I am over the moon with these!

You will be able to pick these paints up over at Stoneground Paint Co. website at some point today!

The Greeting Farm – Miss Anya Coffee Break

Hey everyone! I have a fun card today. I have been getting myself out of my funk, and today’s card was nothing but fun! I feel am loving making cards again!

I stamped this girl from Miss Anya Coffee Break on a piece of toned grey paper. I decided to see what I could do with 6 pencils, one of them being black to retrace the stamped lines. It was a challenge and a great time to see all the different shades of brown I could get with the same 5 coloured pencils!

Pencils used:
Luminance – Sepia
Sepia 50%
Brown Ocher 10%
White
Faber Castell – Bister
Black

Altenew Wallpaper Art and Watercolors

Hey everyone! Today I am here with a soft card featuring Altenew Stamps and Watercolors!

I have had these paints in my collection for quite some time now. I have discovered that I have this issue where I am afraid that I will use them up, and then want them. But, I really need to get over it, and use this stuff. So this card was a step in the right direction, to using my stuff!

As for these paints, I really enjoyed using them. They rewet awesome, the mix well. They layer fantastic, which is how I do most of my painting. Saturation was great, color selection is gorgeous. All in all I really love these paints!

As for my card today, I have been doing one layer cards for such a long time now. This is such a step outside of my comfort zone. I really love how this one came together.

I do have a complete process video of this one for you all as well!

Black Watercolor paper?!?!

Hey all! Today I am playing with a new to me paper. Stonehenge Black Aqua paper! I had a blast pairing this with white gouage and floral stamps!

This card was super fun, I really enjoyed spending a couple of hours with a new paper and one tube of paint.

As for the Black Aqua paper, I really like it. It accepted the Gouache and water just as I expected it to, I did go into it considering it a watercolor paper. It is 100% cotton and is 140lbs the big difference is that it is black and not white.

I do have a process video to share with you all as well!
