Majestic Peony

Hey friends! Today I am sharing a fun little watercolor card, using some newer to me colours and a couple Gina K Designs Stamp Sets!

I stamped out the Majestic Peony Stamp set and then had a fun little messy watercolor play with some Holbein paints! Adding the sentiment and some white ink to make the sentiment pop and readable.

Of course, I do have a process video of this one for you all!

Merry Christmas

Hey all! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all that good stuff!

Here in Saskatchewan we are only allowed to gather with those in our household, so that has lead to my son playing video games, my fiancé playing video games, so I am in the craft room for a while!

I pulled out the Majestic Mistletoe set from Altenew and pulled out my watercolours. Stamping it out with some no lines ink and painting the leaves as well as the sentiment and a light wash in the background tuned out so much fun on this card! Finishing it off with a few drops!

I hope you all are having a wonderful day today, reguardless if it is a lot smaller then normal, like my families Christmas is, or if you are blessed to be able to spend it with all your love ones!

Season’s Greetings

Hey friends! Today I am sharing a card using the new release from Power Poppy! If you saw my video sharing the entire release you know what stamp I am colouring up in today’s project. The little Santa from the Season’s Greeting set was the one that grabbed my attention first.

I pulled out my coloured pencils and went to town on this little guy stamped out on some toned grey paper! Of course I filmed a process video to share with you all!

Green Pastures

Hey friends! Today I am sharing a card and video I made using products from My Favorite Things that I have never used before!

Now, unfortunately, the Green Pastures stamp set has been retired again, it came back in January of 2020 and I had to pick it up because I do live in a small farming community in Saskatchewan. Seriously there is like 400 people where I live.

So I coloured the little lady up with copics, I also used my markers to add shading to the die cuts and give them a little more life! I also created the background with Distress Inks and Oxides using some stencils from MFT, they are one of my favorite companies to pick up stencils from, so great for scene building!

Always Bring a Smile

Hey everyone! I know I have not been around much, I have been dealing with a 2 1/2 month long allergic reaction, that lead to my eyes being swollen shut for what seemed like forever! Covid has my Doctor not seeing patients and blah blah blah I will survive and get off my soap box now!

So for today’s post, I have been collecting (and by collecting I mean not using cuz they intimidate me) all the sets by Stacey Yacula for My Favorite things. Well this weekend that changed. I pulled out my watercolours and the Always Bring a Smile set and went to town.

I painted up these sweet little scene with my Mexico Palette. It really is my most used one, even almost an entire year later.

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!
