Hey everyone. Welcome to the United we Craft Blog Party! I hope everyone is doing well in their social distancing, quarantining or work. Whatever it is you are doing right now.
I know my world has been full of work. Where I am, most businesses are closed or doing curbside pick ups. I have worked in construction for over a decade, thus far I am still working full time and then some.
But! Crafting is still my way to relax after work. And I love sharing projects with you all! So while I haven’t been able to take any extra crafty pictures, or things. I will share some of those with you all this weekend. I do have a fun card to share for this blog party!!
I had so much fun watercolouring up this set of leaves in two different colour ways, then adding them to a tone grey piece of paper where I used Distress Oxides to stencil on a circle.
Supplies: Affiliate links used where possible at no additional cost to you. All funds are put back into my blog and youtube channel.
Hey all! Today I am back with some more watercolouring! It has kinda become my obsession lately!
I stamped them out with Tea Dye Distress Ink, then used my Mexico palette to paint this one up, I am so happy with how soft the colours came out, and how stamping in light ink and not adding the character faces back in creates suck a different look from this stamp set.
I always start with a light wash of colour, just to get rid of the white of the paper, and ease the intimidation of painting it! I love working in light layers of colours over dry paper.
I then slowly worked my way across the cacti, addint layers of greens and yellows and building up the depth till I got to the finished card!
I chose not to stamp a sentiment on the card front and add it to the inside, when I decide who I am giving it to and what sentiment I need.
Hey all! Welcome back to day 2 of previews for The Greeting Farm.
Today we are sharing a new set called Bouquet, and I played with the “Mexico Palette” again when painting these pretty florals up!
I stamped it out with Tea Dye Distress ink then started painting it up, I love working in layers and creating depth on the card, adding a little gray dropped shadow to some of the florals and the sentiment really finished this one off!
Hey everyone! Today I am back with a sweet watercolor card featuring Simon Says Stamp Delicate Flowers!
I painted it up with my Daniel Smith Paints (all links are at the bottom of the post). I had tons of fun masking and creating this little cluster of flowers, then making them all sorts of colours. Bright colour, not my usualy more vintagy tones. But I did bring back that vintage tone with the Hematite Burnt Scarlet in the background.
Finishing it off with a the comfort word from one stamp set and a couple lines from the Tiny Words set and I was over the moon with how this one came out!
We are kicking things off this month with some new dies! We have a Hi Hello die set and a Thank you die! I used the Hello die for my card.
I painted up some flowers from the With Love stamp set, with my watercolours. Once I got that all painted up, I cut the hello out of white cardstock 4 times, then cut it out of the watercolour piece layering the die cuts all together I added that all back into the card.
I am super happy with the way this one came together! Thanks for stopping by, Hugz Jessie
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!
