Green Pastures

Hey friends! Today I am sharing a card and video I made using products from My Favorite Things that I have never used before!

Now, unfortunately, the Green Pastures stamp set has been retired again, it came back in January of 2020 and I had to pick it up because I do live in a small farming community in Saskatchewan. Seriously there is like 400 people where I live.

So I coloured the little lady up with copics, I also used my markers to add shading to the die cuts and give them a little more life! I also created the background with Distress Inks and Oxides using some stencils from MFT, they are one of my favorite companies to pick up stencils from, so great for scene building!

Altenew Super Sale Weekend (freebie stamp project)

Hey all! Today I have a sweet little giftbag project, with video to share with you all! This little stamp was one of the freebies for Altenew Super Sale Weekend!

Altenew + The Daily Marker Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hey friends, I am thrilled to be playing along with this great blog hop, combining Altenew and The Daily Marker for some watercolor therapy! You can find the start of this hop over at Altenew!

Kathy Racoosin (The Daily Marker) is celebrating her 18th colouring challenge until November 22, 2020. Feel free to jump in and participate along with us, and so many others. The best thing about this challenge is that you don’t have to start at the beginning, you don’t have to do a big project everyday, just do a little colouring and destress!

I pulled out the Pen Sketched Flowers Stamp Set for this one, creating a tall slimline card. I pilled out both the 23 half pan watercolors and the 24 half pan watercolours, took them upstairs to my couch and just enjoyed painting. Sometimes I love that a tv show, that I am not really watching, and just painting for the fun of it without filming. Especially when working on a Kathy Racoosin challenge where that is the whole point, to destress!

Once I had all the painting done, I stamped out the simple little sentiment, adhered it to a cardbase and this one was complete! I have had the Pen Sketched Flowers Stamp Set in my stash sense it came out, and have never used it so this was perfect!

Always Bring a Smile

Hey everyone! I know I have not been around much, I have been dealing with a 2 1/2 month long allergic reaction, that lead to my eyes being swollen shut for what seemed like forever! Covid has my Doctor not seeing patients and blah blah blah I will survive and get off my soap box now!

So for today’s post, I have been collecting (and by collecting I mean not using cuz they intimidate me) all the sets by Stacey Yacula for My Favorite things. Well this weekend that changed. I pulled out my watercolours and the Always Bring a Smile set and went to town.

I painted up these sweet little scene with my Mexico Palette. It really is my most used one, even almost an entire year later.

Gina K Designs – Peaceful Christmas

Hey all! I am so excited for today’s post! I was asked to do some guest work for Gina K Designs! Of course I jumped at the chance. I love Gina as a person as well as her products!

Keeping with my typical style and brain of not following the theme of any stamp set. When I saw the Peaceful Christmas set and the row of trees in it, immediately I saw rainbow! Even before counting that there were 7 trees in the line, could it have been more perfect for a rainbow row of trees!

I started by stamping out the trees on watercolour paper with the Amalgam ink, in skeleton keys. I then pulled out my watercolours and started painting the trees in a ROYGIBV pattern of course!

Once the painting was completed I stamped a sentiment from the Majestic Peony set, because I have now strayed pretty far from a Christmas themed card! That was is I called this one complete!

Altenew – Paint a Flower – Poppy Outline

Hey all! I have really been loving exploring one colour with my paintings, since I did the slimline card for Altenew.

So for today’s card I again paired an Altnew image up with one tube of watercolour! Then I had a good play.

I stamped out the image with no lines ink, then pulled out Josheph Z’s Warm Grey from Daniel Smith.

I had a great time, learning how to achieve all the shadows and highlights, so that one colour can give you a full range!
