The Greeting Farm – May 2020 New Release Blog Hop

It’s the 15th, and the MAY 2020 RELEASE is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! We have three new sets for you all CHEEKY PROUD, 3 WISHES and K-POP IDOLS.

I used the Cheeky Proud set for my card today, I coloured up our lady with some warm grey markers, then drew in a big Canadian Flag behind her and make that the only colour piece on the card. I love how this one came out and thought it would be fun to show you how this image can work for you no matter what country you call home!

To celebrate we are having a short BLOG HOP, where one lucky fan will take home the entire release! You have until FEBRUARY 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.

The Greeting Farm – May 2020 Preview day 3

Hey all! We have reached the final day of previews for the May release! All of these clear stamps will be available tomorrow for you all!

Today we have all you K Pop fans covered with K Pop Idols!

I coloured her up with my copic markers, and did a little colour blocking in the background. K Pop is something I do not know much about BUT the cool part is you can use these images for anything and I can not wait for you all to inspire me with what you create!

Take a Hike

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing a sweet little wooden tag featuring The Greeting Farm Take a Hike stamp set!

I started off by using watercolor ground on the wooden tag so that the watercolour would react the way I wanted it to.

I then used no lines ink to stamp the image from the stamp set then went at it with the watercolours! I love this one! It is super fun!

The Greeting Farm – Digi scene coloring with video!

Hey all! Welcome back, today I am using a bunch of digital images to create a fun livingroom scene!

I starting by using Build a Livingroom, Porch, Hello from Home and Desktop from new The Greeting Farm Digital images.

I had a ton of fun with this one, and even created a video to share with you all!

I took this from over an hour and a half down to 15 minutes for you all! But I am super happy with it!

One of my favorite things about digi’s is the instant gratification, buy, download, print and colour! No waiting for shipping! For those of you that are interested I use a HP CP1025nw color laserjet printer for all my digis.

Inspire Me Monday – Loosen Up

Happy Monday everyone! Today I have a new Power Poppy post to share with you all. I usually use the Inspire Me Monday posts to stretch my creativity and push myself to try new styles. This time I went with a loosen up theme.

I tend to paint with my watercolours in a very controlled way to accomplish a floral look full of very controlled layers, I find it very hard to just throw colours around. So that is exactly what I did this month, I used 2 quill brushes for the entire piece, and reached for a stamp I have coloured multiple times before to have a little bit of comfort, so here is this version of Sunflower Power.

I started by throwing some yellow, green and blue into the background and over the image, then I went in to start working out the stems and leaves with more layers of greens, adding pinks and purples to the petals. Then finishing off the center with a granulating brown (Hematite Violet Genuine). I am very happy with how this one came out, I want to try this one again and see how far I can push it till the piece feels over worked.

Thank you so much for stopping by,
