Using Watercolor

A clean and simple sketch inspiration from Freshly Made Sketches # 178, this is my take :)

I used a stamp from Mama Elephant and colored the image using watercolor. This is so much fun to make. Quick and easy apparently.

Happy Sunday!

Just a quick post to share a card project using a sketch from Sketch N Scrap, Sketch # 45.

I used random patterned papers and die cut the shapes with square and rectangle dies.

The stamp sentiment is from Technique Tuesday and the small crab from Paper Smooches Surf & Turf stamp set. I colored the crab with watercolor then fussy cut the two cuties :)

The sketch inspiration..

Happy Saturday!

Joining in this week at Muse Challenge # 107.

This is the Muse card for the week from Vicki Dutcher, love the papers and bold sentiment

03 - March - Mine

I used most of my patterned paper stash from Lawn Fawn. Those colors make me happy :)

I used chipboard letters for my Hello sentiment, just add the right dimension I believe, plus a punched red heart for some additional pop of color.

And my take..

Mini cards

Hiya!

Checking in quickly to share these mini (3 x 3 in) cards. I used the Sweet Stamp Shop stamps that I have in my stash for a while. So glad to use them today.

I stamped the images and fussy cut each one of them. I then added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for some glam.

I also stamped the envelope with the same stamps I used in the cards.

Excited to play at CASology: Week 135 – Mini.

Watercolor play

Hello there!

Today I had the chance to play with watercolors. I bought Strathmore watercolor paper and Bristol paper the  other day at our local craft store so I’m trying them out. Although Bristol can hold some water-coloring, it’s not as forgiving as the actual watercolor paper. Still I love both of these papers. I will try some other types of coloring using Bristol and will share that here too when its done.

For the professor, I used the Bristol while the rest are watercolor paper.

I use the card sketch from Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge, joining in February 22-28 Designer Drafts Challenge.

I don’t have the coordinating die for this stamp set so I fussy cut all the pieces to make this scene.

Butterfly love

A quick and easy card using butterflies stamp set from Sarah. I’m  sharing the same in Sarah Hurley365 blog so come and visit, and say hello there too.

I randomly stamped the butterflies using different ink pads that coordinate. More summery colors don’t you think?

For the sentiment I heat embossed the Happy Birthday using white embossing powder.
