Toucan Party

 

Hey everyone! I here with my last guest design post! I would love to send a big thank-you out to Jennifer, Samantha and everyone over at Newton’s Nook for this opportunity I had a blast and loved every minute of it!

For my last card for them this month (not my last card ever, I have fallen head over heels for the stamps this company puts out) I brought back out the Toucan Party stamp set!

I love making cards like this, only layer, lots of stamping and inking and colouring! It is a great time! I also filmed a complete process video of this card if you are interested in seeing how it all comes together!

Thanks for stopping by,

A Lil’ Magic

Hey everyone! Jessie here today, sharing a fun little watercoloured card using A Lil’ Magic stamp set!

I stamped all my images and sentiment out with Versafine Onyx black ink then painted it up with my Daniel Smith watercolours. I love this splashy little scene, a super quick and soft card! It is always fun with watercolours how you can build up your shadows and intensity just by layering the same colour over itself.

Thanks for stopping by,

Monster Sized

Oh and of course there is a process video!

Hey everyone! It is time for another challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Blog. Valetines day is coming so thought it was fitting to have a love/hearts challenge! A time to show our loved ones, whoever they are, that they matter and are important to us!

I pulled out the recently restocked Beauty stamp for my card today!

This is a pre trimmed red rubber stamp set! Look at those awesome images, my son is 8 and those are probably the three most common poses for him too.  I love the handful of sentiments that come along with it!

I coloured my image up with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils, created a little bit of ground for him to stand on and the hint of a brick wall in behind him!

Our fabulous Krafty Team has some totally cool creations to share with you!

Inspire Me Monday – Magnolia Sunshing

PP_Blog_InspireMeMonday_Badge_JessieBanks.png

Hey everyone! I am finally back on my floral game! I have truly missed painting up flowers. So for today’s card I cropped and printed off Power Poppy’s Magnolia Sunshine Digital image on some Fabriano Artistico 140lbs hotpress watercolor paper.

Power Poppy - Magnolia Sunshine - Jessie Banks

I bought these Jane Davenport watercolours, because the tins were so cute and got around to finally trying the paint! You don’t need to have the worlds priciest paint to create beautiful bright vivid floral cards! Just look at how those colours work together, I was, overall, impressed with these paints.

I didn’t think I was going to have time to get a video of this one together for you all, but I stayed up a little late and got it done, I love filming watercolour and getting to see it all come together again as I edit the video! I hope you enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by,
