Hey all, it has been a long time since I have been able to do a Monday post over at Power Poppy. But, I am back!
So today I am using the Bubbles and Fizz digital image and my gouache for something new. In this time I am having fun using all the things that are in my stash and forgotten goodies I have collected over the years.
In true Inspire Me Monday style I have a process video of my card for you all, this one isn’t my most favorite thing I have ever made. But I had fun with it!
It’s the 15th of the month and the MARCH 2020 RELEASE is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store. Our first set named CHEEKY HOWDY features a stylish cowgirl ready to conquer the world in her cowgirl boots. Next, we took you to the French countryside in our set called BOUQUET. Our 3rd set called MISS ANYA BLESS YOU features two big Anyas with 4 amazing sentiments. Lastly, we introduced a new word cutting die called CONGRATS that is perfect for graduations, a new baby, promotions and even retirements.
To celebrate we are having a short BLOG HOP, where one lucky fan will take home the entire release! You have until MARCH 18th, 12pm CST/1pm EST to leave your comments on each Designer’s Blog and The Greeting Farm Blog (letting us know you completed the hop). We will announce the random winner later in the week on the Blog and in our Facebook Group: The Greeting Farm Fan Page.
I took the Bouquet set and stamped it out with white ink on some black watercolour paper, I then pulled out my small supply of gouache. Something new I am playing with and really enjoying the looks I can get with it! I enjoyed being able to layer light over dark on the flowers in this card!

Hey all! Today I am back with some more watercolouring! It has kinda become my obsession lately!
I stamped them out with Tea Dye Distress Ink, then used my Mexico palette to paint this one up, I am so happy with how soft the colours came out, and how stamping in light ink and not adding the character faces back in creates suck a different look from this stamp set.
I always start with a light wash of colour, just to get rid of the white of the paper, and ease the intimidation of painting it! I love working in light layers of colours over dry paper.
I then slowly worked my way across the cacti, addint layers of greens and yellows and building up the depth till I got to the finished card!
I chose not to stamp a sentiment on the card front and add it to the inside, when I decide who I am giving it to and what sentiment I need.
Hello Everyone! Welcome back to another day of previews for The Greeting Farm!
Today we get to introduce Miss Anya Bless! This one is super pretty, and now that I am typing this, I should have used yesterdays set and buried her in florals. I will have to do that!
I coloured her up with my copic markers, then fussy cut her out. Then I was at a loss, no idea what to do with her. So I took her over to my patterned paper stash and found a scrap of paper from Prima, probably from 7 or more years ago and used it to mat a kraft panel on. Pulling out my Distress Oxides and a clound stencil I created an angle of clouds and bordered it with a white line. Popping the girl up on top finished this card off.
Hey all! Welcome back to day 2 of previews for The Greeting Farm.
Today we are sharing a new set called Bouquet, and I played with the “Mexico Palette” again when painting these pretty florals up!
I stamped it out with Tea Dye Distress ink then started painting it up, I love working in layers and creating depth on the card, adding a little gray dropped shadow to some of the florals and the sentiment really finished this one off!
