Planning for Magnolias

Hey everyone Jessie here today sharing another watercolour card for Power Poppy with you all today! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating it! I am thrilled that I will now be able to share an Inspire me Monday post with you all every month!
I stamped out the branch of flowers from the Planning For Magnolias stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink on Fluid watercolour paper. I painted the image with my Schmincke and Daniel Smith watercolours (there is a process video for you here in this post.) After everything was nice and dry I stamped the sentiment from the Prairie Cheer Set!
I have recently created a facebook group, that the wonderful Marcella told me to share with you all! The group is called Cards and Colour! In the group I am doing one or two live colouring events a month using different colouring mediums (There is even one coming up for Power Poppy, shhhh!!) It’s also a place where we chat about different things with colouring and stamping and share everyone’s wonderful makes, I would love you to come join us!
Now that is enough of my babbling and on to sharing the video!
Thanks for stopping by,

Hey everyone! I have a new release from Power Poppy for you all today! Today we are showcasing the new Graceful Still Life.

I blew the image up and rotated it in order to just paint up the dogwood branches, and Marcella is so sweet she added the Dogwood branches on her own for you!

I chose to do my typical thing and  blew the image up and cropped it onto a A2 size card front! I coloured the image with everything I could imagine, watercolours, Copics, coloured pencils and gouache!

This image is so lovely and I cant wait to print it up again, I think I would like to do it in more subdued colours!

I love this image, Marcella created this one for Rhea’s 50th birthday! It is so lovely! You can grab Orchid Dreams Digital Image here.

I painted this one up with watercolour using both my Schmicke set as well as a couple Daniel Smith paints. I don’t keep track of the paints I use as they are always mixed together and different colours layered on top of eachother. But I do take my time and add lots of layers.

There are some other examples using this image from the wonderful Design Team!
