Sketched Flowers

Hey all! I have lots of things and goals I want to accomplish this year, and part of it is branching out and working with other companies. So today I decided to play along with Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge. This weeks theme is Something New, which made it pretty easy.

Simon Says Stamp - Sketched Flowers - Jessie Banks

I pulled out a brand new set, that I haven’t used yet from Simon Says Stamps called Sketched Flowers. I also used a new watercolor to me Daniel Smith’s Sleeping Beauty Turquoise.

I had so much fun painting this piece and playing with some colours I haven’t used much, or at all before.

 

Plane Amazing

Hey everyone! Happy New Year! I know December was boring here on my blog, but it’s a New Year and here we go again!

The Greeting Farm - Plane Amazing - Jessie Banks

Today’s card features Plane Amazing and Skyward Anya from The Greeting Farm!

I stamped and masked them out on Arches 140lbs Coldpress Watercolour paper. then painted them up with my Daniel Smith paints. I have been all abut the watercolour for the last while, and I don’t see that ending anytime soon.

I am super blessed to be on The Greeting Farm team again this year, and can not wait to share a bunch more projects with you all!

Gnome on Swing

Hey all! Today I have something fun to share with you all! I bought this stamp a while ago and just never had/made the time to get it coloured up. But today I have it painted up and ready to share with you all! I have loved Stamping Bella stamps forever! They are one of my favorites to pick up when I have time to just colour, or paint!

I stamped out Gnome on a Swing in a no lines colour, pulled out my Daniel Smith Paints and got to work!

As some of you know, the first annual Kraftin’ Kimmie Retreat was this past weekend, and those of you that were there saw this little RACCOON come to life! I was so happy with him, unfortunately the lighting on the photo was slightly off, and I left him to live with Kim so this is what we get. It is fairly close though.

You will see these new images in action as you hop around the Krafty blogs in combination with the NEW Granite Grey and Bubbly Blue inks AND the NEW Sweater Weather and Sparkling Snowflakes STENCILS!

Colour Focus – Nickel Azo Yellow

Hey everyone! Today’s colour focus is going to focus on one of my favorite yellows, Nickel Azo Yellow, PY150. I love this colour for it’s bright glowing washes, and it’s rich mass tones. This pigment is a staple in making the new versions of my beloved Quinacridon Gold as well!

I love the variations of colours you can achieve with mixing this, I had a hard time getting all the colours to appear correctly for this one, those purple tones of to the right, are actually more brown with purple undertones, as you will see in the video, but the rest of the colours are true.

I hope you enjoyed the video, of course I have a small product list for you all.
