Hello everyone it's me Jessica and I wanted to share with you this card I made. I love this rose stamp set it's the Splendid Roses from Kennedy Grace Creations. I have to admit I love flower stamps I want to make every card with them lol. I have color them with a lot of different mediums but watercoloring has defiantly been challenging. So I will push through and continue to work at it. I recently got some watercolor pencils and that has been a lot easier to work with. ( I guess I'm a control freak.) But I'm happy to report that I have been enjoying watercoloring and you will defiantly see more.


Now on to the card...

I used Arches Cold press watercolor paper and then embossed the image from Splendid Roses and used my Derwent Ink Intense pencils to color. I then die cut the Scalloped background from the new Cutting Edge Scalloped Dies. I embossed the sentiment from the the new Just a Rose stamp set. Really simple I didn't want to take away from the image so I didn't add any embellishments.



Leave me a comment and let me know if you would like to see videos on me watercoloring with my new pencils I have been thinking about doing some but not sure if anyone would watch them.



Thanks a bunch for stopping by....

Happy Birthday

Its Karen back with you today.  I'd like to share a softly coloured Happy Birthday card.  This card features the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea stamp set.  Its stamped in soft pink ink so the lines blend and fade with the colouring.  The look I was going for was like the image was behind vellum, soft and muted.

I coloured the flowers in pencil and shaded the pinks out with white to make them really soft.  In the centre of each flower is a small amount of green with white gel pen over the top.  This added a bit of interest and gave the flowers a little more life, otherwise they were a little flat.  The outside of the bloom is shaded in very soft grey blended out with white.  The leaves are done the same way with soft green, again blended out with white.

I used a piece of green cardstock on top of pink to bring the card together.  Final step was to stamp the sentiment in black to add a little drama to the card and draw the eye to the flower.  Finished off with a few sequins from the …

October Mood Board with LeeAnn

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today with my take on the Kennedy Grace Designs October Mood Board. If you are not familiar with mood boards they are great jumping points for a project, whether you use one of the images as the inspiration or the color palette alone. 

For my project today I decided to use the color palette, starting with the black and going from there. Using the Just A Rose Stamp Set, I stamped the Rose image using VersaMark clear ink, I then sprinkled Perfect Pearls in Copper over the image and brushed off any excess. I then fussy cut around the image to use it for my project.  I then prepared my layers for the card base. my main base is Kraft cardstock in a2 size. my next layer which is purple was trimmed to 4" x 5.25", and then the green trimmed to 3.75" x 5". I used Tear Tape to adhere the layers together as well as the rose. I used a piece of black cardstock to make a fish tail banner, I stamped the sentiment using Memento T…
