Mother day roses

Mother day roses

I was trying to figure out a color for my roses and I remembered that one of the reasons I love the distress inks is that they have so many options, I love that there is a color that technically falls between pink and purple on the color spectrum.  Perfect!  I didn’t really want to do pink, and I had already picked purple for the background so didn’t want to do it for the roses. 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.

I think it’s funny that I try so hard to keep my lines clean and what not when I am doing watercolor, but I always have a bit of real life that gets to me. There is no way that those little bunnies are not a bit smudgy, there is also no way that as hard as she tries that poor mama in her beautiful dress is without smudges.
