Planning for Magnolias

Hey everyone Jessie here today sharing another watercolour card for Power Poppy with you all today! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating it! I am thrilled that I will now be able to share an Inspire me Monday post with you all every month!
I stamped out the branch of flowers from the Planning For Magnolias stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink on Fluid watercolour paper. I painted the image with my Schmincke and Daniel Smith watercolours (there is a process video for you here in this post.) After everything was nice and dry I stamped the sentiment from the Prairie Cheer Set!
I have recently created a facebook group, that the wonderful Marcella told me to share with you all! The group is called Cards and Colour! In the group I am doing one or two live colouring events a month using different colouring mediums (There is even one coming up for Power Poppy, shhhh!!) It’s also a place where we chat about different things with colouring and stamping and share everyone’s wonderful makes, I would love you to come join us!
Now that is enough of my babbling and on to sharing the video!
Thanks for stopping by,
Hugz,

Hear No Evil

Magnolia Tilda Hear no Evil 1.jpg

Hey everyone! Today I have a soft and pretty card to share with you all. I have been using my Schminke watercolours now for a few months and absolutely LOVE them! I will have a youtube video coming up on them very shortly. But when I first got them this, Magnolia Tilda Hear No Evil, was one of the very first images I painted with them and it finally got on a card!

I do not have a list of the colours I used as I mix all of my watercolours and do not use them straight from the pan very often unfortunately, but, like I said above I will have a youtube video coming up and that will let you see more detail about how I choose what colours to mix together.

I used up a bunch of scraps of paper, a couple flowers from my stash some ribbon and lace and a doily, a little bit of cheese cloth tucked in here and there finished it off.

P.S. Canada Post may be going on strike on July 2nd and the Etsy store has been put into vacation mode while that all gets figured out, this card will be listed there as soon as they have it all sorted out.

Spectacular Soiree

Hey everyone, I have a couple of fantastic things to share with you all today! First of course is the image Spectacular Soiree by Some Odd Girl! Do you see all of the fastastic die cuts on this card, that show off that image ever so well! Well those dies all come from Diemond Dies, and I have the honour of being one of their Guest Designers!

The front of my card was cut with the Labels 2 Top Notes die set,  I cut the circle around my image with the Die-Normous Stack-Ems Circles Nesting Die Set, and I used the Natures Flourish Die to highlight my flower cluster.

Hey everyone! We are still going strong and having a great time playing with Power Poppy images over at Passionate Paper Creations and Friends this weekend. If you aren’t over there with us yet you really should be!

PP Hellebores wc 2

To colour the Hellebores image up I used my Schmincke Horadam Aquarel watercolour set. I will list the colours I used, but just remember these colours were mixed together and used with different amounts of water to achieve the look I was after not just straight colour out of the pans.

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.

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing with you my final Guest DT project for The Greeting Farm. A HUGE THANK-YOU to the team over there for having me this month! It has been a an honour!

I coloured up Cutesy Anya with my copic makers, unfortunately I do not have a list of the colours I used but I do have a colouring video to share with you all!

This is certainly not the last time you will see me playing with The Greeting Farm stamps, I have more projects already scheduled to go up! But I kept it rather Clean and simple for my last one with some patterned paper and a big bow!
