Watercolor Cards – For Different Seasons

Hello everyone!

I have been enjoying lots of watercoloring lately as I always find it so fascinating and relaxing to watch the paints flow! Here are two cards that I made.

SPRING: BUTTERFLY

Memory Box - Watercolor Butterfly

I made this with a butterfly “stencil” which I die-cut from masking paper. I saw an old card from Jill Foster that was so gorgeous that I had to make my own version.

MAIN USED PRODUCTS:

Memory Box – Darla Butterfly Die

Poppy Stamps – Doodle Happy Birthday Die

CHRISTMAS: HERO ARTS TREE

Hero Arts Christmas Tree

Yes, a Christmas card! 😀 Jenn Shurkus has this series to “Get cracking on Christmas” and I did! I watercolored this Christmas tree with a little help from the Hero Arts color layering stamps and heat embossed the tree decoration in platinum.

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 63 – Card Sketch

Hello, it’s me, Rosali!

I am back with two cute critter cards for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge!

It’s a sketch challenge and I have two interpretations to show you. One is a fall card and the other one is a Holiday card.

CAS FALL DESIGN:

For my first design I flipped the sketch sideways! I did ink blending with Blueprint Sketch and Cracked Pistachio Oxide Inks and watercoloring of the images and die-cut tree.

USED SUPPLIES FALL CARD:

  • Lawn Fawn – Jump For Joy stamps & dies, Mice on Ice stamps & dies, Leafy Tree Backdrop (Horizontal)
  • Neenah – 110 lb Solar White (Classic Crest) Cardstock
  • Strathmore – Bristol Cardstock
  • Ranger / Tim Holtz – Distress Oxide Inks
  • Scotch – Foam Mounting Tape

ALCOHOL INK HOLIDAY CARD:

For the second card I used a previously made alcohol ink galaxy! Since I wanted the focus to be on that background I kept the rest of the card in rather neutral colors … And heat embossed the sentiment in gold to match the gold splatters of the galaxy and golden “ornaments” on the tree. I love the result. 🙂

USED SUPPLIES HOLIDAY CARD:

  • Lawn Fawn – Snow Day stamps & dies, Little Town Hillside Pop-Up Add-On die
  • Alcohol Inks
  • Yupo Paper
  • Wow – Rich Gold Embossing Powder
  • Scotch – Foam Mounting Tape
  • Gold Gel Pen, Gold Watercolor

Have an amazing week! ♥

4 Cards With Blue Backgrounds

Hello and happy Sunday!

It’s all grey and rainy here today … Which makes it a perfect day for crafting and blogging! 😀

I made a couple of cards over the last days and it turned out they all have dark blue on the backgrounds! It wasn’t planned – I guess I just felt like using blue. Two cards mimic a blue background as water, the other two use blue to create a wintery wood scene.
