Perfect Poppies

Hey all! I am here today with a fun new post featuring Power Poppy and some watercolor paints that I never reach for. It is fun to use the colours that you never reach for, it also stretches your ability and allows you to learn more.


I loved painting this sweet little Poppy up in these colours. I have a little process video to share with you all if you would like to paint along with me!

Peony Bouquet

Hey everyone! Today I am back with a super soft and pretty floral card! I love my watercolours, and one of my favorite things to do with them is paint some florals.


I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Peony Bouquet in Tea Dye Distress Ink. Then painted them up with my watercolours.

I am not going to pretend like this was a fast process, lots of layers glazed over eachother to create the colours you see here. I love doing that it gives suck depth of colour, and interest to the focal piece.

Bouquet of Thanks

Hey everyone! Today I have a card I shared on Instagram during the 30 day coloring challenge. But now I have edited the video and am going to share it here with you all on my blog.

I pulled out Simon Says Stamp Bouquet of Thanks for this fun little card. I really love how the white heat embossing makes the flowers pop in a softer way the the black stamped lines. All links to supplies will be at the bottom of this post.

I have a complete process video of this one for you!

Bouquet of Thanks

Hey all! I am still playing along with the 30 coloring challenge. I had a super busy day, and almost forgot to put this one up!

I used the Bouquet of Thanks stamp from Simon Says again. For a completely different look then the first time I used it! You can find all links at the bottom of this post.

I stamped and embossed the image, then got to playing with watercolours. Love of water and just dropping the pigment in and letting it do its magic! It was a super fun and simple card to put together!

Unicorns

Hey everyone! Hope everyone had a great weekend, we had cold weather, the power went out, we got a bunch of snow. All in all, a regular day in a Saskatchewan winter!

Okay back on track, I am playing along with Kathy Racoosin and her 30 Day Colouring Challenge! If you would like to see what I make for the days that do not hit my blog make sure to check out my Instagram!

I had so much fun working on this one, the unicorns and sentiment come from C.C. Designs (links to everything will be at the bottom the post). I free handed in the tree and the bush to finish off this fun little scene.

After everything was all stamped and drawn in I pulled out a bunch of my watercolours and painted this up, I didn’t make a list of the colours used for this, I do apologize for that and I now have a little notebook to keep track of that.

I pulled out the flowers and cut a whole bunch of masks to make this great little card, layering the flowers to create a couple clusters. I then pulled out my watercolours and painted this up. I am over the moon with how this came out!
