Inspire Me Monday – Washy Watercolour

PP_Blog_InspireMeMonday_Badge_JessieBanks.png

Hey everyone! I am here today, hopefully to help inspire your creative week, using an awesome floral image from Power Poppy!

I am all about floral cards, in ever medium ever!! Today I have a video with some super soft watercolour on the Bubbles and Fizz digital stamp!

PP Bubble and FIzz

I really love this image, I chose to print the lightened version of the stamp and use some light washy watercolours. I really love the way this card came out. In my usual style I blew up the image to fit the front of a card and added the sentiment that comes along with it!
I hope you enjoy my video!

I have always loved how washy watercolours work so well with florals, you don’t have to worry about picking every little detail to come out with a super lovely card front!

This set is so fun and, if you have followed my blog or youtube at all, you know flowers are one of my favorite things to colour and paint!

I stamped the flowers onto some masking paper and cut them out in order to create this fun little CAS card. I coloured it up with my Zig Clean Colour Brush Pens!

March Farm Fresh Challenge

Hey everyone! It’s a brand new month and that means a new Farm Fresh Challenge over the The Greeting Farm!

This month the challenge is Mixed Media! Now you can go all out and make a lovely canvas, keep it simple and do a one layer card with copic colouring and a distress ink background! It doesn’t have to be elaborate or super simple to be called mixed media, it just has to have more then one medium on the project.

I landed somewhere in the middle, my image, Blush Bebe was coloured with my standard Copic markers, I then edged all of my papers in distress ink before roughing them up a little. The chipboard was painted with Gouache that I tinted with some pigment powders. after putting on the flowers and getting the card all set together some molding paste really finished it off!

I hope you are willing to step outside of your comfort zone, or play within your favorite style with us on this months challenge!

Hellebores

Hey everyone! Today I have a “stretched” card for you all the finished card measures 3″ x 7″, I used the Hellebores digital stamp from Power Poppy, cropped it to fit a section of the flowers onto the front of my card and then coloured it up with my copic markers.

The Sentiment also comes from that same digital stamp.

I left the centers of the flowers uncoloured by choice thought it looked pretty.
