Magnolia Tulips Thinking of You with Quick Creations

Hello everyone, I have a card for you today for Quick Creations using the Magnolia stamps "Two Tulips", Lawn Fawn's "Scripty Sayings" stamp set and paper from the CC Designs "Pastel my Belle" collection.



I colored this image using my Prismacolor Premiere Pencils on hot pressed water color paper.  I love pencils on this paper, it seems to have just the right amount of tooth to it, and the pencils blend just beautifully.

I stamped the tulips and masked them off to be able to stamp them three times in total to look like a row of tulips.

You can find the linked items in Noelle's online shop at Quick Creations.  Come and join in the monthly challenge, there is a new one starting soon!

Friday Feature - Derwent Inktence Pencils!

HI!  I have another Friday Feature card for you today using Derwent Inktense pencils :)  SPOILER ALERT****these MAY just be my favorite of the five pencil brands...but are you really surprised? LOL!






I also think this may be favorite card out of the five lol.  I just love the way it turned out.  The flower stamp is an unamed STampin' Up I believe (if you recognize it please let me know lol) and the sentiment is from the Stampin' Up Set "Yippee Skippee".

All five of these cards have been embossed before watercoloring.  For card work, I just find it that much easier and faster to watercolor when the image is embossed.

Next week, I will have Prismacolor Watercolor pencils to pay with so  come back and check it out!

Plant Some Kindness witih Quick Creations and Your Next Stamp

I have a set of four thank you cards for you today using the "Plant Some Kindness" stamp and die set from Your Next Stamp, available at Quick Creations :)


These cards turned out so sweet, and they are smaller than my usual size, at 2.75 x 4.25. 


To complete these cards I used the following products from the Quick Creations shop:

"Plant Some Kindness" clear stamps and dies from Your Next Stamp
Simple Stories "Carpe Diem" 6 x 6 paper
Simple Stories "Carpe Diem" enamel Dots
Simple Stories "Carpe Diem" Paper Clips
Nuvo Crystal Drops in Sweet Lilac, Caribbean Ocean and Ivory Seashell
Nuvo Glitter Drops in  Sherbert Shimmer

I really enjoyed the spotlight technique I used here, it is a great way to focus on one small image :)

Come back and visit again soon for more inspiration for Quick Creations :)

Sweet as Honey

I have been having more fun with watercolors!



I have created this card for you today using a background that I previously made using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. I created some texture on the background using the honey comb stamp and Pumice Stone Distress Ink and Fossilized Amber with the Flourish stamp from the "Cherish" set.  I used the Honey Bee "Cherish" stamp set sentiments to create the two rows of sentiments and added some of the little bee and mini honey comb stamps in there too.  Then I stamped the flowers and watercolored them using Fossilized Amber and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.  I fussy cut the flowers out and layered them with dimensional adhesive so they stuck out from the page.

This is such a versatile stamp set, you can do just about anything with it!

Come back soon for more fun watercolor inspiration :)

Friday Feature - Staedler Ergosoft Aquarell

I have another watercolor pencil project for you today, this time with Staedler Ergosoft Aquarell pencils :)

I do like the brightness of these pencils, however, once again, the Staedler pencils have very hard leads and it's hard to keep the pencil pigment on top of the paper.






The butterfly stamp is from Hero Arts and it is a fun stamp to play with :)

Stay tuned next week for Derwent Inktense!
