Power Poppy Inspire Me Monday

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!

Thanks for stopping by!

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!

Let’s Stick Together

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.

The Greeting Farm – March Preview Day 4

We have reached the final day of previews for The Greeting Farm, that means all the things will be available on the 15th (Sunday).

Today we have a Congrats die, I love the big scripty word dies that The Greeting Farm releases. This month instead of doing my typical Eclipse Technique, I layered the die cuts creating a drop shadow.

I then pulled out a piece of vellum with cold dots on it and put it on a kraft card base. Adding my die cut to the front of the card really finished this one off!

Thanks for stopping by,

The Greeting Farm – March Preview Day 3

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.
