Heart Hydrangea Card

Hi and welcome!  I’m back with another floral card–I can’t resist painting flowers.  I’ve created this card using a new crafty tool: Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens!  They are so much fun to work with.

I’ve always preferred using colored pencils in my art work.  I like control and with colored pencils I have it.  I’m dipping my toe into the watercolor realm with these Zig pens.  However, with the Zigs I still have more control than I would with the usual watercolors and brushes.

That messy watercolor world is next for me.  I can feel it calling and telling me to loosen up.  LOL!

I adhered my completed panel onto a pre-made card base from DCWV called Brights, Solid Box of Cards.  I loved how this pink complimented my painted panel.  You only see the back of it, of course, but it’s the little touches like this and the Moonshine sequins that finish off the card with sparkle and fun!

Have a wonderful week, everyone!!

Fairy Shaker Card

Summer solstice, the longest day of the year, is just a week away.  In fairy folklore it’s also the most magical night of the year.  So, I had to make a card for the occasion–to celebrate summer and all its beauties.  My card is also a thank you card, so I’m also celebrating the kindness of others.  We all have wonderful people in our lives to be grateful for!

The tools I used for this card are all very magical as well.  I heat embossed tiny stars all over the panel of this card with clear embossing powder.  They were invisible and only popped out when I applied some pretty distress inks over it.

I also used the distress inks to color in my fairy and flower images with a water brush onto watercolor paper.

Some Pretty Pink Posh sequins added the most sparkle and magic to this card.  I used 4mm Bermuda Blue and 6mm Lavender Moon.

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy summer solstice, everyone!!

Pretty Poppies Card

Hi!  I hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far.  I’d like to share the latest card I created.

Poppies_Card_THUMBNAIL

I used a stamp set from MFT called Pretty Poppies, and I wanted to add my own touch to the card, so I used a second generation stamping technique.  I stamped my image onto a piece of scrap paper first and then onto my card panel.

The second generation image is lighter so that I can color over it with my colored pencils.  I love being able to add my own touch to the cards I make.  I love my Prismacolor pencil.  It’s fun and relaxing to color when I find the time, my two kiddos keep me hoppin’.
