Watercolor

Happy Friday!

I have been playing with simple watercoloring for this stamped imaged from Some Odd Girl.

I have a very small collection of distress ink pads and I used them to do the watercoloring. I’m excited though to get more of those inks soon in the mail ūüôā There was a recent sale online and got the chance to grab additional ink pads for coloring.

For this card, I used the card sketch from Sketch N Scrap Sketch # 79.

For my background, I embossed the lighter cardstock  with circle design, it also mimics the pattern in the washi tape I used in the strip which was coincidental. Love that when it happens.

I also stamped a tiny part of the kraft card base with doily design, very small part shows in the left but the design almost looks like the same as the flower pattern in the washi tape.

Hello!

Hello there!

Its been very quiet here for sometime, as most of us are, the holiday season has also kept me busy as well.

And so..kicking with my first card project for the year is a fun coloring using Some Odd Girl digistamp, Mae. I used coordinating colored papers and vellum to complement the image colors. For texture I used some sequins to also mimic the vellum polka dots in the background.

My card inspiration sketch is from Sketch Saturday, Week # 342.

Sweet Wishes

Today, I did a quick card using some coloring using the Some Odd Girl stamp, Deck the Halls Tobie stamp set that I won at Simon Says Stamp hop.  Loving it!

For this card, I used the card sketch inspiration from the ShowCASe Your Style Challenge # 4: Sketchhour.

After coloring,  I added some silver ribbon and silver glittered paper strips behind the circle. I also added some clear sparkling sequins from Pretty Pink Posh around the card for some sparkle.

Digi Coloring

I shared a coloring project I did last night in my Instagram¬†and had fun working on this digistamp called Woodsy Mae ¬†from Some Odd Girl. I have won this digistamp from SOG’s linky party¬†that I participated previously.

I used two type of markers, for the skin and tree trunk I used copic markers while the rest used promarkers. Comparing the two marker brand, it seems that the copic markers blend well than the latter. This may be different for some users but I’m not really sure. It’s how I find the difference. Copic markers nib is also softer compared to promarkers. I’ll appreciate if you can share some of your experience using these markers if you have tried them both too.

For my background I used hero arts Woodgrain background stamp while the Hello sentiment is from Mama Elephant. I added some Hero Arts flower bling in the grass area for some fun. The scalloped edge is die cut using Lawn Fawn die.

My card layout is from Seize the Sketch # 24.

Just meow-zing

Today, I got the chance to use the Clever Kittys stamps from Some Odd Girl. There are a lot of pretty character stamps from SOG but I only have this kitty stamp to try out now. I stamped the image into a pattern paper then fussy cut both the cat and the mouse. I also added some buttons and enamel dot.

I used the card sketch from Retrosketches # 117.
