Daisy Greeting Card

Daisy Card FrontHere is the second greeting that I created. I used 140 lb. Strathmore watercolor paper to create the card. Using my Cuttlebug, I die cut an oval in the front of the card. Elizabeth Craft Peel-Off Stickers were placed on the inside of the card. I used Tim Holtz Distress Markers to color the daisies and to create the sky and grass. I also created a matching envelope from 90 lb. watercolor paper.

Flower Canvas

Flower CanvasCreated this canvas by applying an acrylic paint background. Then I used Tim Holtz idea-ology Tissue Wrap and applied a coat of gesso over that. Next up was a stamped image by AnnaBelle Stamps. I used Derwent Inktense Pencils to watercolor the stamped image. And finally stamped a script stamp from Rubbernecker over the entire canvas. I followed a video on You Tube to create the canvas.

Tulip Greeting Card

Tulip CardMy first greeting card from start to finish!! I used Strathmore 140 lb watercolor paper to create the card. Used my Cuttlebug to die cut an oval in the front of the card. The tulips on the inside of the card are from Stacy Stamps. Watercolored the tulips with Sakura KOI watercolors and water mixed with Ranger Perfect Pearls

When I completed the card I decided to make an envelope to match. The envelope was created using 90 lb watercolor paper and the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. I stamped another tulip image from Stacy Stamps and used Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils to color.

Just a note: The lighting seemed to be off when I photographed the card and envelope. The pink tulips actually match on the card and envelope, but not in the photographs.
