Watercolour Wonders

Hi everyone, hope you are all doing great. I have a watercolor card that I created for the Prima blog   feature today.

For my card I've used a combination of The Basics and Scenic Route watercolour pencils which I blended with the watercolor brush pen onto Bloom watercolour paper.

I've added some deeper highlights with Plumeria Color Bloom mist and diluting once again with the watercolour brush pen.

The card is finished with some feather "leaves" which I was really pleased with the end result and flowers which have had a watercolour details added with the pencils.

Under The Sea

Hello lovelies! I hope you are well. Today I'm sharing a card I created for Mixed Media Place (or should that be Plaice - bad joke time!) with plenty of marine vibes goin' on.

I used a piece of scrap card board as a card base which I covered with Art Extravagance White Crackle paint which created great dimension to play with. I highlighted the crackles with watercolour pencils and mica powders.


 I've used wire, wool, muslin and semi precious stones to created the "sea foam" and "coral" detailing.

The Bubbles stencil works perfectly with this project along with 3D Gel ,Color Bloom and Ecoline to create a waterey effect. Glass and micro beads have been used  for the "sea bed" which were adhered with 3D gel... and a cute plastic fish which got some treatment from mica powder and gesso!

See you later!

Waking Up to Reality - Prima Product Picks

Hello! It's a new week starting with new challenges over on the Prima blog today, and we have this beautiful palette to play with this August.

And I enjoyed creating this poppy layout...

The colours this month are wonderfully fresh, which inspired me to pull my watercolour pencils out! Not that I need much encouragement ;)

I drew the outlines for the leaves and used the pencils to layer colour up, mixing with water along the way.

The background is a combination of Finnabair circular stamps and a Bloom stencil, again adding colour from the pencils.

Finished with a smattering of glitter and stencil details. Hope you're inspired to play along!
