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!

Altenew August 2020 Release!

Hey everyone I am so excited to be joining Altenew for the August 2020 new release!

My first project I pulled out my Altenew Watercolours an stamped put these gorgeous flowers and painted them up!

I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and added them to a splashy background with Altenews typically stunning sentiments!

For my next project I wanted to create something super soft, so I stamped the outline of the Amarylis stamp the. Added some soft colour using Altenews watercolours again. I love using paints on projects.

I then filled in the background with some solid black and added a banner with the sentiment for this card. It is super simple and fast to bring together but packs slot of punch!
