The March Hare in June

Hi everyone!..

Today I cleaned my craft shed.. and boy did it need it, i was up there for hours 🙂

So, after dinner I headed back up there to make a quick wee card, not making too much mess 😀

On the upside… I did find a ton of wooden stuff I can alter and decorate 😉 so it wasn’t too bad

Blushing Roses

Hi everyone..

As most of you that visit my blog may already know, I signed up for the Online Card Classes – Watercolor for card makers course, I have to say it has been the best one yet, providing heaps of hints, tips and fabulous video tutorials.. I am at the cow’s tail, as usual, and working through day 3 and 4, which feature stamping with watercolours..

In the card I made today, I picked a Rose Blush stamp by Indigoblu and coloured the surface of the stamp with various shades of distress markers, I used Barn Door, Picked Raspberry, festive Berries, spun sugar, mowed lawn, evergreen bough and iced spruce, spritzed the stamp with water, then stamped it direct onto some Tim Holtz Watercolour cardstock..

watercolour stamping #2

Once It was stamped onto the cardstock, I took a Koi water brush and just blended out the lines of the stamp to give a watercoloured finish.. I do like how this turned out, I chopped it down, edged it in wild honey, and matted it onto some marshmallow cardstock..

watercolour stamping #3

then I mounted the finished panel onto a folded piece of Bazill marshmallow cardstock measuring 5″ x 5″ when scored.

Stamping with watercolours

Looking forward to working through Day 5 and 6, I will hopefully share these with you all tomorrow

Spring Flowers Watercolour Card

Today in my workshop I tried my hand at a bit of water colour painting using watercolour pencils and an aquabrush.. I’m not much of a hand a drawing, but quite like this little 2 x 2″ piece 🙂

There is not much else on this card apart from watercolour paper and a small layer of light moss green bazzill textured cardstock.

I used the same watercolour paper for my card base as I did for the mini painting 🙂

Just a plain wee card for nice and clean simple look
