No-Line Watercolor - Winter Roses

Hello Everyone, I am sharing a card today where I used the no-lines watercolor technique to color these beautiful roses from the Winter Roses Background rubber stamp.

I stamped the image with Antique Linen Distress Ink onto cold press watercolor paper. The light color of the Antique Linen ink will blend into the watercolors while coloring for a no-lines effect. To color the roses I used Daniel Smith extra fine watercolors. To create the background I used the Farmhouse Basket stencil and Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.

The sentiment is from the You're My Jolly sentiment set and was stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. To create more texture and for an artsy look I've added pink and green watercolor splatters as well as white acrylic paint splatters. A few clear dew drops finish off my card. 

Here is a link list for all the products I've used that are available in the Whimsy store:

Seasons Greetings

How are your Cristmas Cards coming along? Need some more inspiration? Here is another creation I made using one of the NEW Whimsy Stamps November stamps - Christmas Postcard.

I love this fir twig image with these beautiful cones. This is an image that can be colored fairly quickly and is a perfect choice for mass producing Christmas cards or for some last minute cards. I used my Tombow markers to color. 

To create the background I masked a square with some purple tape on a Mixed Media paper panel and applied Distress Ink Tumbled Glass with a ink blending brush. Then I stamped the image on top of the blue square with Versafine Clair Nocturn ink. For a bit of bling I've added Stickles and sprinkled some more Glamour Dust on top of it while still wet. The sentiment is included in the set as well and was stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturn ink again. I've added red Stickles to the berries on the sentiment and a few clear sequins finish off my card.

Whimsy Stamps November Release - Bunny Delivery

Hello Everyone! It's this time of the month again - Whimsy Release Time! You will find the whole Whimsy November Release available in the store now!

Here is my first project for this release using Bunny Delivery, colored with Karin Brushmarker Pro pens. This was also one of the Make&Takes at the recent Whimsy Workshop Weekend.

After coloring I fussy cut the images and trimmed the sentiments. I used foam tape to attach the images to the card front for a 3D effect.

The pink glitter panel is die cut using the Peekaboo Window 4 die.  Some glitter snow was added for even more dimension and to create a snow effect on the trees. A few added buttons complete my card.
