Jungle Gym

Hey everyone! I know I have been missing lately, it is summer (the couple months of it we get in my neck of the woods), so we have been camping and spending lots of time at the beach. But, today I have a new card for you all!! I used MFT Card Challenge Sketch #334, and created my card using the Jungle Gym stamp from the July release!

I hope you enjoyed this video and my card!

Tiger Lily XL

Hey everyone,today I have a card and video for Power Poppy Stamps, hopefully to kick your mojo into high gear and remind you that no flowers have to follow traditional colours!

I have coloured the Sunflower Power Digital stamp, every colour under the sun! And this Tiger Lily XL is quickly becoming the same thing. I love that about florals, just because something “should be orange or pink… doesn’t mean I can not colour it teal!!

Seriously I love this flower, the size is amazing! And if you have seen any of my work with the digital stamps here at Power Poppy, I tend to blow them up and crop this, and this stamp gives me that same effect just in clear form! P.S. keep your eyes peeled for a new release, I have it on pretty good authority that another XL stamp is going to have to come live with me!

Oh yeah, of course I have a process video of colouring this lovely image up!

Succulent Singles

Hey everyone I have a card for Power Poppy ! Bare with me today, because I am going to try and inspire you while playing with a new watercolour medium to me. I have had the Dr. P.H. Martin Hydrus watercolours in my crafty stash for a couple months, and am just now finding the time to play with them!
I decided why not start with the fabulous Succulent Singles stamp set!

I love how bright and vivid these colours are! I do have a video of this being painted for you all, unfortunately there is no voice over, I am still waiting for my replacement mic. Fingers crossed it will be here by the end of the week.
It was super fun to do, and I can not wait to play with them again! They are so bright and vivid, yet you can water them down enough to get soft pastel like colours!

Colours used – Lemon Yellow, Chrome Yellow Deep, Magenta, Permanent Carmine, Delft Blue, Idigo, Prussian Green, May Green, Colbalt Green Dark, Olive Green Yellow, and Yellow Ocher.

I am not sure this using up of my older papers will ever end so I can purchase new ones, BUT on a plus note I am really enjoying using my papers up. I make a lace fan out of some super wide black lace in my stash, a black doily from Micheals, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and some stamens finish off the front of this card.
