Hey friends! Long time to type/talk! We are back for a new year and I have 363 days to figure out what I wanna do with this blog and youtube. I really miss making cards so lets kick things off there!
Today I pulled out Wplus9’s Flora and Fauna 3 and made a card! And yes I filmed it for my youtube channel!
I have been doing so much with my watercolours last year that you didn’t get to see, I decided to grab something different do this one all in coloured pencils! I am going to be honest this was not a fast process. This card took me over 3 hours. Because I had 3 hours of footage to edit down for todays video!
I really love all the small details when it comes to one layer cards, shadows under the focal peice, the shading to make it look slightly sunken boarder. This one was just a blast! I love the little gouache addition to help the sentiment pop and brighten up the centers of the flowers!
You can watch the entire process below!
Thank you all for stopping by, even though I have not been around! I appreciate you all so much!
I pulled out my Tweet Friends stamp set from MFT and Stacey Yacula.
Stamping it with my Cement Gray ink pad, and pulling out my coloured pencils and getting to work!
I have always loved the look of pencils on toned paper, kraft, gray, or black I love all of them with my coloured pencils. After slowly building up the layers to get the main image coloured up. I added a start white outline just to let the little bird pop off theback ground. Some gental scratchy colouring to give the feeling of a background really did finish this one off.
Hey friends! I have been having so much fun finding things in my stash as I move craft rooms!
So for this card, I pulled out a set from MFT that I have had for a long time and my Caran D’ache Neocolor ii’s to create this fun galaxy style card!
I really am happy with how this one came out, I am sure I could have blended the galaxy more but all in all this one came out awesome!

Hey friends! Today I again was playing with my Kraft paper, Copics and Coloured Pencils. It has been my jam the last few days. They take me about 3 mornings of colouring before work!
So I masked out the little van and put the tree in behind it. After that stamping the sun to the right side of the paper. All using Ink on 3 No Lines ink. I really like it on the kraft paper for this look.
I do really love the white highlight I added between the images and the blue sky.
Hey all! Welcome back to day 3 of previews for The Greeting Farm! We are nearing the new release!
Today’s set is called The More the Merrier! It is full of the cutest little critters ever!
Let’s talk about this card! I had a fantastic time colouring up the little hedge hog and door! and for some reason while I had them all masked out I decided it was a door to no where? Notice the blue sky and green grounding. But, I was so happy with how it looked all put together that I did not want to change it and try and make it look like the inside or outside of a house. So I left it the way it was. I am really happy with how it turned out.
I have been doing so much painting with my watercolours lately, that it was so much fun to pull out my colored pencils and colour this one up!
Hey everyone! We are back for another set of previews for The Greeting Farm! This month’s release is amazing!!
I pulled out all my coloured pencils for this one. One thing I love about this medium is how friendly they all play together. Prismacolor, Polychromos and Luminance. I can mix them in endless ways to create tons of looks!
I think added a little bit of detail with a white Posca marker and added some stitching to finish it off. The sentiment comes from the Holiday Wishes stamp set.
Hey everyone! I have been doing tons of colouring lately. But not a lot that I can show… yet!
So for today, I pulled out the Bring Out The Sunshine set from My Favorite Things, and coloured her up on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. I haven’t coloured up anything on kraft cardstock in a long time.
I recently purchased a set of 20 Caran D’ache Luminance coloured pencils, and 4 additional colours to that. So I mixed them with my Polychromos to colour up this little lady.
My verdict on the Luminance pencils after their first use… I will be buying more. Lol I am an art supply junkie!
