Magical Friends

Hey everyone!I am here today, sharing some sweet little pony/unicorn (with no horn) post with you all today!
I pulled out the sweet Magical Friends set, with some fun unicorn images in it! I am sure you all know I have a watercolor obsession, so I pulled out my neglected Schmincke set to paint this little scene up.

I drew in the tree in the background with a water soluble pencil, then painted everything up. I love the simplicity of this little card.

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.

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.

I decided to pull out my watercolours and paint up this adorable little mouse. Once the card front was painted it felt like something was missing, so I pulled out some of my metallic paints and added a little shimmer to the glow of the lantern.
