Aqua Tint Sunflower

I made this while making samples for the Aqua Tint Pens release. The stamp is by Crafters Companion and I loved coloring it with the Aqua Tints. I used Holly Leaf, Olive Jade, Moonlight, Harvest Moon, and Smoked Quartz. I’m not a great watercolorer but even I get great results with these babies. I did however not […]

Elephant Hugs

I got some cool dies from MFT and this window is one of them. I think it’s so fun! I used some elephants by Mama Elephant and dies by Winnie & Walter for this cars. I honestly can’t for the life of me remember what I used to color this card. I’m guessing it was […]

Flying Elephant Card

This was a card I made back when the Aqua Tint Pens was released. Look at that color! The pigmentation is amazing in these pens. I used the colors Onyx Black, Starry Sky, Aquamarine, Moonstone, Solar Red, Sterling Silver and Cosmos to color this card. So you can get the soft colors of the balloon and […]

Lucky Duck window card

Interactive cards are so much fun. I got this die by Lawn Fawn that makes a window that you can open to reveal a surprise message. I used a big background die by Kaiserkraft and the super cute ducks by Lawn Fawn. I colored the tub to look like the old enamel type tubs. Super […]

This little card was a super quick one. I made this while crafting with friends and I was given these resist cards, I think by Theresa Collins, but I might be wrong. I had the Aqua Tint Pens close by and just scribbled a little colorful background on top and voila. This color combo is […]

Glitter paste background

See, I told you I wasn’t done with this set yet. Still playing with the cactus set by Concord and 9th. This time I used some lovely glitter paste for the background and used colored pencils for the big cactus. For some reason, these cacti are so much fun to color. Not many details and a […]

Cactus on black background​

I love the look of copper embossing powder on a black background, and colored pencils to color. I think it looks super dramatic. I’m not happy with the sentiment, the embossing acted weird on top of the colored pencil and copper embossing powder. I’m not sure what happened. But I didn’t want to toss the […]

Bright poppies

I went to this amazing Art journaling class with Vicky Papaioannou a few weeks back. I got this Stampendous stamp set with Poppies in my kit. They are big and lovely and I felt like I needed to color them properly once. I kinda forgot that bright reds are pretty hard to color with. In […]

Coffee and friends

In our house, there is a saying: Do not get between mom and her coffee. I really love my coffee. So this Coffee Love stamp set by Altenew was a must-have. I stamped up the images randomly and did some messy (very therapeutic) water coloring, using my Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers. Coffee and friends really make […]
