Having some fun playing with the new floral set from The Alley Way Stamps called Wispy Wishes, I thought I would create my own retro style flower panel! This was one of those cards that for a while there I didn’t think it was going to make it lol.
Today at TAWS I felt like making a rainbow… so I did! I decided to use my pencils to add details to my card and who doesn’t love a bright and multicoloured lollipop, this one is so cute (it would even look great in some Christmas colours).
Back with a very CAS card for TAWS. I’ve had (been hoarding) this pink design paper forever… seriously forever and today I challenged myself to use it and the only think I could think to add was gold, so I did. then came the dilemma how to add the sentiment….
So happy to be playing with my new Kuretake Gansai Tambi and I think it’s time for a watercolour class (or two). I was in two minds whether to share this, as it’s not my fave card but literally it’s the first time I’ve added water to paints so thought I would share it anyway.
This card was inspired by this awesome card from Larissa Heskett Designs, I adore the shaker bag, it’s genius! And a big thanks to everyone with their wonderful ideas about which watercolours to buy, the advice was greatly appreciated.
As soon as I saw this set at TAWS I knew just what I wanted to do, create my own word background, although there was a little moment of debate where I did consider using a colour instead of the black… but in my mind’s eye it was black, so it stayed that!
This video is for The Alley Way Stamps and I gotta say this fish really makes me smile and well, what more can I say… love a him/her version! I was also thinking about it after, that a little tulle in her ‘hair’ would’ve been cute…
So I wanted the ‘pencily’ look and now I’m not so sure… what do you think,maybe my usual bold and bright might have been better? I had fun though and it doesn’t hurt to stretch those creative urges, I have enough stuff here to stretch them for years… but apparently I still ‘need’ more, just ask my friend Paypal, good bloke that one, I don’t even have to leave my seat (go figure). Now to business….
