Simply Watercolor Day 4 Landscape

Yesterday was the Landscaping Day, my family came back so I did't have enough time to made this post, but I want to show you all my cards.

This was the first card from the day and I follow the tutorial.  This is really easy to do.

The second, is the theme Galaxy. I love the special form, which Kristina W. was showing... I put also a little pink into the background. I am not a fan to write my own sentiments, mostly they looks terrible, so I decided me to stamp a sentiment and use a stamp sent from Create a Smile... Mostly it is cold outside, it is German and means Brrrr, it is cold outside. 

At this time we have summer here and beautiful warm weather.

Next card shows cacti, I love to play with colors and so I use colors like pastels tone for my card.... This time I try again to write the sentiment, hope you can read this :)

This is the last card from the Landscape Day... This was a little challenge for me :) 
...but looks interesting. 
I show the card my husband. He said to me: "Hunny, you have to write the word ACROSS small, it is an adjective. I was amazed, because I used a stamp from MFT. I told him, that I used a stamp and he said really? Yes, I am not sure with writing sentiments and mostly the looks terrible. He said, you need only practice... it's like the painting, you grew so much... " Oh I love this moments. I am pleased to have a husband like him.

Ok, this was the day landscape, which card is your favorite?

Simply Watercolor Day 3 Handlettering

Today is the theme not so easy, because I haven't practice in hand-lettering... 

I let me inspire from the course yesterday, my ideas and look, what I create... 

At first I create this lazy sloth and color him... after than I searched a sentiment who will fit... It is an German sentiment and means... "Actually I had a lot things in mind today, well than I have a lot to plan tomorrow." Ok I hope you will understand it... 

This is my second image I made for this day... It is again a German sentiment and means:
"this is no mess, here are ideas everywhere around."

Simply Watercolor Day 1 Pattern Backgrounds

Today was the first day from the new course simply watercolor... My husband is with the kids on an camping, so I use the quite time to color... 

Here my first cards from the course...

Paintalong Watercolor Landscapes

I am a member from the free class watercolor Landscapes. A wonderful class for all people, who want try to color this art. I painted my first two projects and I am stunning about what I created with help from Sandy Allnock. Can't wait to find more time for practice :)

A typically farm house from America... I had trouble with the masking liquid on my paper, because if I removed them I damage the paper. After coloring white again it fixed the paper... I don't know why it was happened. Maybe you have a tip for me :)

My second picture was this one.... A wonderful sunrise... I didn't color the clouds so like I want... but I love the result.... I added gold to the shining areas... So it looks like the sun shining to it...

It was a great practice to play with my colors.... and to try techniques :)

As card base I use an standard A2 card. I use a die cut for embossing the background, also scrap papers and and sentiment who fits perfectly.pop up the Terrier with foam tape and finished the card with embellishment.

Whimsy Stamp Mazarine the Fairy

Today I will show you a rainbow color card with the amazing Mazarine Fairy stamp from the monthly New Release on the Whimsy Blog.

What is the idea behind the card?

I love colorful cards and one of my favorite colors are the rainbow one :) Do you played with the Distress inks from Tim Holtz? Oh, what a fun... Try it out, please... and you will play a lot with them... You do not need a lot for a rainbow color... I think I made one with only three colors, because the blend fantastic... and made new colors...

How I made this card?

I stamped the image with a watercolor ink, because this time I work with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush and add later a few Prismapencils. I use a A2 format card for my card base and use the Distress ink directly on the card base, also I splatter my card with the ink.... So it is really messy... After drying I secure the color with Distress Glaze... It is a great tool, like a cream and you put it directly to the image/ background... It secure it, if come water again to the picture, don't happened... and it don't smear... I searched an sentiment for this wonderful lady... and found one from W Plus 9 (Curious Forest Friends), which I hot embossed with a silver glitter powder from Hero Arts. 

Tipps and Tricks

You can use distress backgrounds to many occasions and it looks really great. If you play with Distress Ink, it will be great if you have a paper towel for hold the card, so you haven't fingerprints on the project... 

Don't forget...

Our next Challenge will open on the June15th... I can't wait to see your idea... 


here I list products that I used and also alternativ products...
