Kimberly’s Birthday Card

170224_Kimberly_BDCardThis card was made for my granddaughter Kimberly’s birthday. The Elizabeth Craft Designs Peel-Off Sticker was watercolored with Distress Inks. I used my new scallop edge die to edge the card panel. Pretty multi-colored heart scrapbook paper was adhered to the card base.



Experimenting with Distress Inks

170221_ExperimentingOne afternoon I had my Distress Inks out working on a watercoloring project and decided to experiment with the blending of some of the colors. I had no plan for this even turning into a card as I was just playing. I liked the blending results, so I stenciled the word ‘Imagine’ on to the blending with black ink and added a beautiful, glittery butterfly. I die cut a frame from black card stock and my play time turned into a completed card.

Watercolored digital stamp…


This beautiful digital stamp was offered free at Peppermint Patty’s blog. A friend messaged me to alert me to the stamp saying that when she saw it, she thought of me. I went to the blog site to see the stamp and immediately knew I had to watercolor it. I did spend some time at the blog looking at the amazing work of Karin Åkesdotter. If you do visit her blog, plan to spend some time admiring her work!!! Karin says this is the first digital stamp she has created. I am so in love with this stamp and hoping that she will create many more stamps in the future.I am including a link to her blog in case you would like to color the digital stamp too.

I watercolored this lovely image on Strathmore Bristol paper with just two Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and one Winsor & Newton watercolour marker (sepia for the branch).
