If you haven’t been yet, you should attend Jennifer Dove’s Boot Camp. It’s awesome and you learn so much! This last year I was blessed to attend but found myself without my Copic markers. Yikes! But never fear, my watercolors were near. So that’s what I took. I know it’s crazy, but what a great way to learn the medium in a different way. Check out what I did the first year HERE.
All of these images were colored on Hammermill Premium Color Copy paper with 30 year old student-grade watercolors. That’s right – these watercolors were so old and the caps so crusty that I had to cut the back ends off and squeeze the paint into trays so I could use them. But it was all good – I ended up getting five sets of watercolor trays so I shared them with my Mom and kiddos. Bonus! Anyway, without further ado, here’s what I colored at boot camp…
For those who joined the Whimsy Stamps World Card Making Day weekend event on Facebook have seen this already but for those that missed it, here’s a second chance. For my project, I chose to used Jr. Hatter Jacie and colored her with a Christmas themed background.
This is a repost of my project I created for the 31 Night of Halloween at Whimsy Stamps. I shared this on Night 3 on the Whimsy blog where you can pick up and continue for the rest of the month. For this project, I used Polka Dot Pals Kezia and gave her a Halloween flair with cobwebs and spider friends.
A new tiles set has been released and this one has a woodland theme. This is Animal Tiles – Into the Woods from Whimsy Stamps and I think it’s my favorite so far. These cute animals are great on their own but I chose to use them all together and fill up the card.
I’m joining the 31 Nights of Halloween on the Whimsy Stamps blog and for my project I chose to use Polka Dot Pals Kezia – and I created not one, but two projects with her. Whoop! For this project, I chose to keep it simple and just use Halloween colors to color her. This was also a great chance to color purple hair. 😀 To see my other project with an even more Halloween flair, check out my post HERE for Night 3 of the 31 Nights of Halloween.
I’m so sorry! Sometimes that happens beyond my control but I feel terrible that I caused that. Would you forgive me? Hopefully this card says all of that. I’ve used the accessory stamp from the “Tin Games – Oops! Sorry” set from Whimsy Stamps. Newly released! Then I combined it with a bucket load of other products to get some good use out of my stash. These are basics that I reuse often!
