Hi folks.  You may recognize a version of this card I recently posted.  I remade six more and added Technique Junkies Believe in the Magic of Christmas as the title to the card.  Also stamped out is Merry Christmas 2 and Flourished Christmas Tree.

Fall Pansies

Technique Junkie Newsletter, Technique Junkies Stamps, Pansy

Hello friends.  It’s that time of year when we plant our pansies.  Oh how I miss being able to plant them, now that I’m in an apartment.  They are just such happy flowers, aren’t they?!

About a year ago I bought Inktense watercolour pencils and decided to finally pull them out and blow off the dust and actually use them.  Wow, talk about vibrant!

I used two techniques from the Technique Junkie Newsletter:  Seam Binding Ribbon Dying from the October 2014 issue, and Resist Strips from the August 2014 issue.  It’s a very simple card, but clean and simple seems to be the “thing” right now.

My pansy stamp is from the Technique Junkies Stamps.

Black Eyed Susan

Black-Eyed Susan’s are one of my favourite flowers.  Daisies, no matter the colour, really appeal to me.

This is another in my series of watercolours, painted with Tombow markers.

Happy stamping!

Bloom Where You’re Planted

Impression Obsession Butterfly, Bloom Where You're Planted

Bloom Where You’re Planted is this week’s theme for the Impression Obsession blog challenge.  As you may know, I love Impression Obsession and have become a regular in their challenges.  It allows me to ink up stamps and not leave them sitting around unused like we I so often do.

I used the Blender Pen Technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter.  I love to use my Tombows and seem to be using them more these days.

The stamp I used is Sunflower with Butterflies H1771.  I do love my sunflowers and was thrilled when I stumbled upon this stamp.

About the buttons, Al asked me why I added them.  All I could say was I needed to embellish the card.  What do you think.  Could this card stand on it’s own without embellishments?

Tool Shed

Tool shed?!  What in the heck does this card have anything to do with a tool shed?!  Well, I will explain.

Creative Belli Blog

The Creative Belli Blog has a bi-weekly challenge and today is a new challenge.  It’s all about a tool shed.  No, not a real tool shed.  This neat challenge has us bringing out tools or products that have been long forgotten.  In my case, I brought out my forgotten Cropodile and eyelits.  Remember when eyelits were everywhere?

We would welcome tool shed cards or projects.  All you have to do is link up your card to Mr. Linky for everyone to see.

Watercolour

My Inkadinkado image was painted with watercolour paints.   I created the water and the sunset.  As many of you know, I work in different mediums.

I do thank you for stopping by today.  Have a terrific day.

Tutorials every Tuesday right here
