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!

Sketched Flowers

Hey all! I have lots of things and goals I want to accomplish this year, and part of it is branching out and working with other companies. So today I decided to play along with Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge. This weeks theme is Something New, which made it pretty easy.

I pulled out a brand new set, that I haven’t used yet from Simon Says Stamps called Sketched Flowers. I also used a new watercolor to me Daniel Smith’s Sleeping Beauty Turquoise.

I had so much fun painting this piece and playing with some colours I haven’t used much, or at all before.

 

Plane Amazing

Hey everyone! Happy New Year! I know December was boring here on my blog, but it’s a New Year and here we go again!

Today’s card features Plane Amazing and Skyward Anya from The Greeting Farm!

I stamped and masked them out on Arches 140lbs Coldpress Watercolour paper. then painted them up with my Daniel Smith paints. I have been all abut the watercolour for the last while, and I don’t see that ending anytime soon.

I am super blessed to be on The Greeting Farm team again this year, and can not wait to share a bunch more projects with you all!

Thanks for stopping by
