The Greeting Farm - Lift off go time - Jessie Banks.jpg

I did tons of masking for this card, combining Mega-Mini Go Time, and Mega Mini Lift Off. I created the background with my Distress Oxides on Kraft Cardstock, then coloured up all the rest using my coloured pencils, I mix Prisma Colour and Polychromos Pencils.

I have been making tons of Happy Birthday cards lately, I was running low! I hope you found some inspiration in this and you play along

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps - My Best Friends are Witches - Jessie Banks.jpg

I had posted a question in the Kraftin Kimmie Facebook group wondering what I should colour. Keersten answered me with “Something witchy, but non traditional colours” So here she is from the My Best Friends are Witches stamp set. I created the background with my distress inks then coloured her up with my copic makers. The sentiment came from another witch stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by,
I can not wait to see what you create this week!

Lucky Tulip

Hey all! I recently ordered some stamps from a company for the first time, so today I have a card to share featuring Lucky Tulip from The Ton.

I used a bunch of different paint colours, Moon Glow, Cobalt Blue, Sap Green, Serpentine Genuin, Green Apatite Genuine, Quinacridone Gold, Rose of Ultramarine, Quinacridone Coral, and Quinacridone Violet.

Let’s Fiesta!

Hey everyone! Today I have a fun card to share with you all featuring SugarPea Designs Let’s Fiesta stamp!

Sugar Pea Designs - Lets Fiesta - Jessie Banks.jpg

I have been loving building scenes with lots of masking, so first I cut out the masks for the 3 images I put on the card. I then stamped and masked them all out so I could create the sunset with my distress inks. I coloured up the images with my copic makers, then enhanced with a little black coloured pencil. I then splashed a little water on the backgroud to add a bit more interest.

Up in the Air

Hey all! Today I have a card just for fun! I created this one layer card featuring My Favorite Things Up in the Air, and My Favorite Things Ewe are the Best.

My Favotire things - Up in the Air - 1- Jessie Banks.jpg

I created masks for all these little stamps using masking paper. Which allowed me to create the background with distress inks, I created a cloud stencil by stamping the clouds touching and fussy cutting them out. After, I coloured all of the images up with my copic markers. I then enhanced the background with a little bit of watercolours and the images with a black coloured pencil and a white gel pen.
