Beary Big Hugs

Hey everyone, today I have a card featuring Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.

I layered up a few stamps from the Beary Big Hugs stamp set and painted it with my watercolours, I have been working with a new watercolour paper and will have a review of a bunch of different papers to share with you hopefully in a week or so.

I painted the little bear up using my Schmincke and Daniel Smith watercolours. I think it came out darling, not so sure about the paper I used as the background didn’t blend the way I intended it to, but that is the nature of watercolours. You can only control them so much! all in all I am very happy with the way this card turned out.

I would like to enter this card into Kraftin Kimmies Wonderful Wednesday challenge.

Witch Willa

Hey everyone, I am back again with a card for Quick Creations. I have coloured up Kraftin’ Kimmies, Witch Willa with my copic markers.

kks witch wanda.jpg

When colouring this darling image up, I tried something a bit different for me, and used my W7, and W5 markers to add some really deep shadows to the image instead of going in after with my coloured pencils. I really enjoy the effect it gave adding those colours before going in with the colour I wanted that actually are to be.

I finished off card by placing it on a couple pieces of Echo Park – Magical Adventures – Dots and Stripes paper and calling it good. I haven’t been doing much in the way of simple cards lately and I love this one, especially since I made 10 of them for in with the treat bags for my sons class for Halloween.

I used the Fancy Squares & Little Things Die set from Creative Basics, I took the smallest die of the fancy squares and traced the inside of it, like a stencil, around my image then cut it out with my scissors. I then cut a black mat using the same die. Some layers of pretty patterned paper, a black doily, some Sari Silk Ribbon and come flowers finish off this pretty halloween card.
