Hey everyone! Have you seen there is a new release over at Whimsy Stamps, and it is awesome as always!
I painted up the Love Ewe Sheep with my watercolour paints on Fabriano Artistico 140lbs hotpess watercolor paper.
I kept my colours very soft with this one, and am absolutely in love with how this card turned out! I cut the image panel down to 5.25″ x 4″ and added a little detail with a black multiliner.

Hey everyone! Today I have another preview of a set being released on the 15th of this month from The Greeting Farm! The set is call Oh Dragon, and I love it. This entire release has my son absolutely thrilled!
I made a super small 3×3 card, I watercoloured up this darling little dragon and the background. I really love how this cute little note card turned out! I think I need to make a bunch of them!

Wow, lets chat about this technique from the Watercolor For Cardmakers Class, Swarup Murthy taught this lesson, and boy what a lesson it was. I am semi pleased with the results. Would for sure skip the enamel dots when I attempt this again. But this lady makes it look ever so easy, and lets be honest, this was one of the most challenging lessons I had run into in this class. I will attempt it again, hopefully this weekend so be on the lookout for that.
There is a closer shot of the flower the lines you are seeing in the flowers are not the stamped line, they are actually dropped in with watercolour. I use a Windsor and Newton, compact Cotman watercolor pallet, on Canson 140lbs coldpress watercolour paper. The sentiment is from one of me flower sets from whimsy stamps, I believe it is on the Hibiscus and Lily set, but will have to check for sure.

So after being sick for a few days and not being up to doing much. I was in google hangouts last night with a friends who are also taking the watercolor for card makers . They were working on their swatches for the class, to see all the colours of their different mediums when they have been used with water. I jumped on board.
This is by no means all of the different things I have. I hope to finish the rest of my swatches today, aside from my gelatos, which are still on their way to me.
So these are all the samples/swatches they are done in canson watercolour paper that is the size of a card front ( 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 )
Here is my small collections on Twinkling H2o’s. I had to hunt for them as I forgot where I put them. Ha ha. Shows how often I used them.
Distress markers. I didn’t swatch out the white for, hopefully, obvious reason.
Derwent watercolour pencils.
These are my Derwent Inktense colours. I have them both in the pencils and the blocks. I will one day splurge and order the large set of the pencils. Oh how heavenly that would be.
Thanks for stopping by.
