Heart Abloom

Hey everyone, welcome to another Inspire Me Monday! I am here with you all again today, hoping to pop some cropping and watercolour inspiration into your Monday!
Power Poppy - Heart Abloom - Jessie Banks.jpg
I enlarged and cropped the Heart Abloom Digital Image to fit the front of an A2 size card, then printed it out on Fabriano Artistico 140lbs extra white hotpress watercolour paper. I then pulled out some of my Daniel Smith paints and had a blast painting up all these gorgeous florals!

I created the entire scene with stamping and then just sketching in the background with my copic markers on Neenah Solar White Cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed!

I love this little guy! The sentiment was pulled from a now retired stamp set, sorry about that! If you want to see the process of painting this little guy up check the Kraftin Kimmie Facebook Group on Monday!

The Greeting Farm – February Previews Day 3

preview

Wahoo!! We have reached the final day of previews for The Greeting Farm! How Rawr You is today’s set, and of course its DINOSAURS!!

The Greeting Farm - How Rawr You - Jessie Banks

I did a whole ton of stamping and masking for this card, then coloured it all up with my Polychromos coloured penicls. Unfortunately, I coloured it while my son was skating so I didn’t write down all the colours. I love how the sentiment looks in the smoke coming out of the volcano though!

Make sure you stop by The Greeting Farm Blog and see what the other designers have created!

The Greeting Farm – February Preview Day 1

preview

Hey everyone!!! Welcome to February previews for The Greeting Farm!

Today’s set is called The Snuggle is Real! It is absolutely adorable!!!

The Greeting Farm - The snuggle is real - Jessie Banks

I coloured up a couple of the images from the set with my copic markers, creating a background with distress inks and a sentiment from the set, the card still felt a little incomplete. So I pulled out some twine from my stash and added that across the top.

Make sure you pop over to The Greeting Farm Blog and see what the other awesome designers have created for this set!
