Under the weather birds

Under the weather birds

There was recently extremely sad news about the amazing lady who was the artist behind the image on this card (and the first digital stamp I ever used on a card.).  People seem to just keep disappearing.  I purchased this image awhile back and every time I would see it I would remember I really wanted to make this card and then put it off, well the time has come! read more

Warbler and magnolias

Warbler and magnolias

I think this card turned out to be really pretty.  I don’t think the punches that I did show up very well, but that is ok.  The design on this card is Warbler and Magnolias.  When I was water coloring the magnolias I used some victorian velvet to start with a strong base color and then I mix in a bit of picket fences and then finish coloring out the petals.  It gives it a nice orchre effect.

Candy for the birds

Candy for the birds

I guess these birds would like some candy. Honestly, I couldn’t think of anything to put on their little signs, and then I thought well everyone likes Easter candy. Well, at least they are cute. Which is what we say about the kids when they do the exact same thing. Huh, maybe that’s where the idea came from…
