So I decided to do what I love to do best, take a digital image, this time I chose the Climbing Clemantis and blow it up super large, I used a sentiment from the Cuppa Buttercups digital set and painted it all with my watercolours!

I have a love for painting florals, I have not had much of a chance to do many of them lately, but that doesn’t change how much I love them!!

Check out our Bloom Brigade and Instant Gardener Team creations and heartfelt words as they help celebrate this happy and beautiful couple!

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!

PP Bubble and fizz 2

Colours used: (these are all Daniel Smith Colours, but you can use any watercolours you have on hand!)

Cobalt Teal Blue
Quinacridone Pink
Rose of Ultramarine
Moonglow
