#702 – Thinking of You

So, I just wanted to do some coloring, and it ended up as this card! 😀 And as to why I wanted to color – I had just got a set of Prima watercoloring pencils, and I couldn’t wait to use them in something! 😀 Some flowers seemed to be the right choice! 😉

Thinking of You

I used Concord & 9th Hello Lovely stamp on watercolor paper. After stamping it using a light grey ink, I started coloring on it using the Prima watercolor pencils. Once done, I trimmed it and stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Summer Garden stamp set, in a dark grey.

Thinking of You

I really did like these pencils. They give off a soft look as compared to my Gansai Tambi watercolors. So, these will be the colors I’ll reach for whenever I want a softer piece.

#694 – Thanks For Everything

PE: CAS(E) This Sketch Favorite!!

CASE This Sketch - Honorable Mention

Hello and welcome! Its been some time I last worked on Kraft base cards, and somehow a ‘thanks’ theme with kraft seemed like the perfect fit.

Thanks for Everything

I made this card using the three basic and simple basics of card making – stamping, embossing and die cutting. I used the images from Reverse Confetti Blooms n Buds for stamping everything in tones of brown, die cut the sentiment ‘Thanks’ using Neat & Tangled Jounaling Alphas, the rest of the sentiment stamped from Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint, finally the embossing in the background is using We R Memory Keepers Weave embossing folder. Very simple, but looks complicated. 😀

#691 – Hello Beautiful!

PE: Winner at CAS(E) This Sketch! Yay!!!

CASE This Sketch - Challenge Winner

Hello! Back to some more messy watercoloring.. I do enjoy it so!! 😀

Hello Beautiful

I used My Favorite Things Buildable Bouquet, to first stamp the images using Antique Linen, then watercolored the image using distress inks. The sentiment comes from Ellen Hutson Mondo Magnolia, which I stamped on another piece, then fuzzy cut and adhered it on the watercolored piece. I distressed the edges of the watercolored panel before adhering it to the card base.

#641 – Foiled Butterflies

Hello! Yup, I made a couple more cards!! Who could stop themselves when they get to add some pretty butterflies – and with foiling to boot!! Not me!! 😀

Happy Birthday

My first card, I used gold foil from DecoFoil. The butterflies are from Tattered Lace, which I mounted over a die cut panel, which I embossed using Altenew Sketched Lines stencil, and mounted over a white card base. The tag sentiment is from Neat and Tangled Birthday Tags die.

I am submitting this card to the following challenges –

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #177 – Tic Tac Toe (I used butterflies, add a tag, add texture)

Stempel Garten Challenge #63: Anything that Flies

Happy Little Stampers: July CAS Challenge: Birthday

For my second card, I used aluminium foil – I adhered it to some scrap card stock using double sided tape and die cut both the butterfly and the sentiment from them. The butterfly is from My Favorite Things Flutter of Butterflies and the sentiment is Paper Smooches Warm Wishes.

Warm Wishes

For the colorful background, I used Paper Trey Ink Triangles cover plate die. I die cut several colorful cardstock, then pieced them together to the pattern I found in the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. Somehow I found that creating the pattern for the background to be easier than creating some random pattern for it – then I would have had to ensure that not too many similar pieces are together.. so tiring!! 😉

PE: CAS(E) This Sketch Favorite!! Wow!! 😀

CASE This Sketch - Honorable Mention

Hello! Made this thinking of practicing my critter coloring, but, it didn’t end with any sort of proper practice, except if you consider that messy coloring can be a practice (though not on the critter!!) 😉

The Right Cat-itude

I stamped all the images, from My Favorite Things Cat-itude stamp set, on scrap cardstock, fuzzy cut and colored them all using Zig Brush pens. The frame is die cut using Paper Smooches Scallop Frame die. I then adhered them using double sided tape and, the frame inset using glue.

#552 – Thanks..in Black and Gold

Hello!

I recently got a set of Gansai Tambi watercolors, and tried it out in my previous card…and loved it! I love how rich the colors are, and smooth. And the best part – I don’t have to worry about lines. I owned a set of Camel watercolors till now, and the one complaint I had was that they dry quickly, and once set, I was completely unable to set the colors in motion again. I would see the lines/borders of the previously dried color, and had no idea how to get rid of it. No amount of water would move it, adding more color would not work..I was completely lost. So, I had to try and finish coloring while the colors were still wet..not losing any time at all. But I don’t have this problem with Gansai Tambi. And there’s the bonus of having such a variety of colors, including gold and silver – simply wow!!

Thanks

Ok…moving on from praising the watercolors … and coming back to actual action.. I made this card using the darkest brown, the black and gold colors from the set. I first stamped the flower from Ellen Hutson Mondo Magnolia using MFT Hybrid black ink using my MISTI (had to stamp twice, since the tooth of the paper wouldn’t let proper stamping the first time) and set about coloring. Once the panel dried, I stamped the sentiment using Honey Bee Stamps Brush Grunge Alpha, twice, once using Black Soot distress ink and then again using Memento Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink. I even added splatters of the gold from the watercolor. I then trimmed the edges and mounted it on white cardstock. That finished a quick and easy card – barely spent half an hour on it, even with the drying time. 😀

Thanks

#551 – In Purple

PE: Winner at Cupcake Inspirations!!

Cupcake Inspirations - Sweet Six

Hello! I am back with another card. A simple to make, but packing a punch card. 😉

Believe in Miracles

I just picked a watercolor panel, colored it with two tones of purple and then a bit of black at the top. Once it was partially dry, I sprinkled a few drops of water, to get small gaps where I could add stars. Once the panel was dry, I stamped the trees (from an alcohol inks kit I brought recently) and the sentiment from JustRite Bokeh Time and embossed it in gold. I also added dots for the stars using embossing pen, which too, I embossed in gold. I then added a second set of trees, behind the gold embossed ones using Black Soot distress ink.
