I pulled out the new It’s Mice Time to Celebrate set for this fun card. Hand drawing the balloon I stamped the mouse in Tea Dye Distress Ink. Then pulled out my Stoneground Paints and created a fun little scene into the balloon.
This sketch was super fun! I would have never thought of painting a simple little scene in a balloon without it. I can’t wait for the next one!
Hey everyone! Today I have another fun card using Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps A Bit Smart Assy (this is a rubber set so once it is sold out it will no longer be available so you should get it now!) . I coloured her up using my copic markers and enhanced it with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils. There is a video below of me colouring this image.
If you are a fan of Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps you have seen Becky Pearce, her colouring is simply amazes me, I have always wanted to be able to colour like her and lift bits and pieces of the way she colours. I figured well why not give it a shot… so here it is its not right, but it is not bad for a first attempt! If you have not seen her work you should really go check out her blog.
I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did attempting it!
This weeks challenge is to use a stencil on your card… and here is mine.
Here it is! I am happy with the way this card turned out, aside from the flowers everything on this card is made from white paper and coloured using Distress Inks (weathered wood, crushed olive, dusty concord, seedless preserves, fired brick). The Stencils used were Prima’s Chevron stencil, and the Tim Holtz Ray stencil.
The image is from Sherry Baldy’s My Besties (the first time I have coloured one of her images) and coloured using my Copic Markers.
The Feathers are die cut from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Peacock Feathers dies, and the frame around the Happy Birthday sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp) is from Spellbinders Fancy Frames 1. All the feather on the card are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to link up your card below. (you will be able to see all cards linked using this tool as well)
So, as lots of you know I have been playing catch up with the Watercolor For Cardmakers Class. It is fun, challenging, and irritating all at the same time. All I can tell you is I am sick of flowers… hence the butterfly.
The circle is made with Gelato’s in some random colours, blue, pink, yellow, orange, grey, and purple. The butterfly stamp is a Martha Stewart one from 2009, and is stamped in Distress ink .
I stamped the image with Dusty Concord, then watercolored in peacock feathers, and picked raspberry. The sentiment comes from the Handwritten Greetings set from Simon Says Stamp, and is stamped in Versa Fine Onyx Black. As usual my card base is Neenah Solar white 110 lbs cardstock cut to a standard A2 size card, the pink pannel is out of my scrap bin, so I am unsure of where it came from and is 4x 5 1/4, and the front with image is Canson 140lbs coldpress watercolor paper cut to 3 3/4 x 5.
Hey everyone, sorry I am running a little behind here, this weeks challenge is MAKE IT SPARKLE! Think glitter, bling, sequins etc. My card is done I lifted Jennifer McGuire’s cards. I will hopefully get my card photographed and put up tonight. Working a couple 14 hour shifts at work so we will see how I feel when I get home.
