Love Birds Coloured card

I made this card for a friend for her daughter’s wedding.

The image is a digital image from Philomena O’Neill that I purchased many years ago. I’m not sure if it is still available…

I printed the image on my home printer in the size that I wanted and then coloured it with Copic markers.

More OnLine Card Class Watercolours for carmakers

I caught up to the 2nd day of the Online Card Class for watercolours.

The second day’s topic is using Traditional watercolours (tubes, pans, etc).

I followed the example of Dawn W. from WPlus9 (I copied her card really, except not as good as hers for my first try… ).

I used tubes of watercolour […]

I am copying the design that Jennifer McGuire used… Using a heart […]

Online card classes – Day 2

This class was about using flower dies.  Jennifer McGuire doubled up her flowers to give them more dimension.  I doubled up my flowers also using glitter card stock.  I trimmed the die a little bit because it was a little big for my […]

Watercoloured garden

Today I would like to share this new watercolouring technique I have rediscovered.  I recently attended a craft show and Art Impressions stamps were “demoing” this technique.  Using stamps, inked with water based markers, you create your little scene and use a brush and water to smudge the lines of the stamped image.  Very easy […]
