To create this card:

  1. Watercolor puddles of color onto a quarter sheet of watercolor paper, heat setting between each color to avoid muddying
  2. Allow to dry completely, and trim to desired size (if necessary, iron to flatten by sandwiching between clean scrap paper; NO STEAM!)
  3. Die cut Bold Blossoms from heavy white card stock and mount as shown to watercolored panel
  4. White emboss sentiment onto piece of vellum card stock; staple to watercolored panel, atop the die cuts
  5. Mat previous layers with patterned paper; mount completed panel to an A-2 (4.25 x 5.5″) card made from white woodgrain card stock
  6. Embellish with enamel dots

 

I’m a bit over the moon with this release–put a lot of my favorites into it…

I also feel kinda dumb… I was so busy working behind the scenes on sooooo many other things relating to the release, I totally froggot (that is a made up word) to INCLUDE myself in the hop. *smacks forehead* So, thanks for hanging in there and seeing it aaaaaallll the way thru to me! :)

Have you enjoyed the hop? I just love how different everybody’s take has been… and I feel pretty doggone lucky to have these talented peeps sharing their mad skillzzz with this release…  *verklempt*

WINTER 2015 RELEASE

Just for the halibut…

Sometimes, the little voices in your head start yakkin’, and you gotta’ give in… ;)  Here’s a peek at some card designs I made and hope to shoot with the “good” camera, soon…

These happened to be made with a few sets from my stamp designs + a few stamps made by some industry friends and colored with the following Peerless watercolors / Kuretake Gansai Watercolors, colored pencils, or Copics:

And again… Twelve Days Set + Milo’s ABC’s, by Lawn Fawn What can I say? They just go together so well!!! Kinda of a match made in heaven, methinks!  I actually did this design for the October In Touch Newsletter–a spin-off from a countdown project.

I’m up to the gills at the moment, working on a few projects, but just thought I’d sneak some eye candy in. Just cuz it’s Friday. :)

Have a fab weekend!
