Happy Monday everyone! Today I have a new Power Poppy post to share with you all. I usually use the Inspire Me Monday posts to stretch my creativity and push myself to try new styles. This time I went with a loosen up theme.
I tend to paint with my watercolours in a very controlled way to accomplish a floral look full of very controlled layers, I find it very hard to just throw colours around. So that is exactly what I did this month, I used 2 quill brushes for the entire piece, and reached for a stamp I have coloured multiple times before to have a little bit of comfort, so here is this version of Sunflower Power.
I started by throwing some yellow, green and blue into the background and over the image, then I went in to start working out the stems and leaves with more layers of greens, adding pinks and purples to the petals. Then finishing off the center with a granulating brown (Hematite Violet Genuine). I am very happy with how this one came out, I want to try this one again and see how far I can push it till the piece feels over worked.
Hey all! Today I am back to share some of the new release from Simon Says Stamp with you!
I got the joy of playing with the Outline Mum Die, I love how it has a big cut out for the background and then a thin one for the letters themselves. The dies cut awesome I had zero issues.
I pulled out the Be Kind and Tiny words sets to help compliment the die. Then I coloured everything up with my Karin Brushmarker Pros. This was my first play with them. So far I think I love them but I should probably do a couple more projects before I say that 100%.

Hey everyone. Welcome to the United we Craft Blog Party! I hope everyone is doing well in their social distancing, quarantining or work. Whatever it is you are doing right now.
I know my world has been full of work. Where I am, most businesses are closed or doing curbside pick ups. I have worked in construction for over a decade, thus far I am still working full time and then some.
But! Crafting is still my way to relax after work. And I love sharing projects with you all! So while I haven’t been able to take any extra crafty pictures, or things. I will share some of those with you all this weekend. I do have a fun card to share for this blog party!!
I had so much fun watercolouring up this set of leaves in two different colour ways, then adding them to a tone grey piece of paper where I used Distress Oxides to stencil on a circle.

Hey all! Today I am back with some more watercolouring! It has kinda become my obsession lately!
I stamped them out with Tea Dye Distress Ink, then used my Mexico palette to paint this one up, I am so happy with how soft the colours came out, and how stamping in light ink and not adding the character faces back in creates suck a different look from this stamp set.
I always start with a light wash of colour, just to get rid of the white of the paper, and ease the intimidation of painting it! I love working in light layers of colours over dry paper.
I then slowly worked my way across the cacti, addint layers of greens and yellows and building up the depth till I got to the finished card!
I chose not to stamp a sentiment on the card front and add it to the inside, when I decide who I am giving it to and what sentiment I need.
Hey all! Welcome back to day 2 of previews for The Greeting Farm.
Today we are sharing a new set called Bouquet, and I played with the “Mexico Palette” again when painting these pretty florals up!
I stamped it out with Tea Dye Distress ink then started painting it up, I love working in layers and creating depth on the card, adding a little gray dropped shadow to some of the florals and the sentiment really finished this one off!
