MFT – Party Like a Pirate

Hey everyone! Today I have a card to share using the MFT – Party Like a Pirate stamp set. I created this card to participate in the MFT Card Challenged – Sketch Challenge #341.

MFT Party Like a Pirate

This card came out so fun! I really loved this sketch and will have to do more with it in the future, but for now I do have a colouring video of the complete Party Like a Pirate set!

I really love this fun summerycolour pallet they gave us to work with. I broke out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and set to work with the Prehistoric stamp set.

I am so over the moon with this set! I need to use it again with my copics. My son thinks its awesome that I can make him Dinosaur cards! I kept everything really simple following the colour pallet provided. I even recorded a video of making this card for you all!

I have a fun little video of this card. I hope you enjoy!

Inspire Me Monday – Washy Watercolour

PP_Blog_InspireMeMonday_Badge_JessieBanks.png

Hey everyone! I am here today, hopefully to help inspire your creative week, using an awesome floral image from Power Poppy!

I am all about floral cards, in ever medium ever!! Today I have a video with some super soft watercolour on the Bubbles and Fizz digital stamp!

PP Bubble and FIzz

I really love this image, I chose to print the lightened version of the stamp and use some light washy watercolours. I really love the way this card came out. In my usual style I blew up the image to fit the front of a card and added the sentiment that comes along with it!
I hope you enjoy my video!

I have always loved how washy watercolours work so well with florals, you don’t have to worry about picking every little detail to come out with a super lovely card front!
