New cards

I spent some time crafting this afternoon. I have quite a few bits and bobs I need to get on with. First of all I wanted to make my DCM card for tomorrow. That all went a bit pear shaped and I'm not particularly happy with the end result - you can see for yourselves tomorrow. After that one was made I had a sudden yearning to play with watercolours! So I did!!!

I stamped two images that I thought I would enjoy painting. The first one is a Sugar Nellie and the other is my favourite Tilda. I painted them both and enjoyed it immensely and I felt so inspired I went on to make 2 cards with them that I actually like! Who knew? lol

Soooo having spent a fair bit of time indulging in a love affair with prismacolor pencils, I am now in love with watercolour paints. Probably because all the blending of the prismas kills my hand whereas watercolouring is a breeze :o)

Snowfamily stamp - Sugar Nellie
Sentiment stamp - Penny Black
Paper - Imaginisce - Snowy Jo
Ribbon from stash
Glitter glue on Daddy snowman - stickles in waterfall

This card is teeny tiny as it's made using the offcut from the tall thin one!
Image - Magnolia
Paper - Doodlebug (out of the new 6x6 paper packs)
Embossed button strip - Cuttlebug (I went over it with a red inkpad)
Sentiment stamp - Studio g (99p set)

I have to say I am a big fan of water colour paints and do use them alot. I think you can get so much better shading and details to your designs. Have you tried stamping yet using them ! ! !

Love the cards and the snow family is so cute.

Love the PB stamp!
