A Lil’ Magic

Hey everyone! Jessie here today, sharing a fun little watercoloured card using A Lil’ Magic stamp set!

I stamped all my images and sentiment out with Versafine Onyx black ink then painted it up with my Daniel Smith watercolours. I love this splashy little scene, a super quick and soft card! It is always fun with watercolours how you can build up your shadows and intensity just by layering the same colour over itself.

Lucky Tulip

Hey all! I recently ordered some stamps from a company for the first time, so today I have a card to share featuring Lucky Tulip from The Ton.
