OCC Simply Watercoloring-Day 3

Who knew it would so hard to commit your handwriting to a card ftont? lol  I really did spend way too much time on figuring this out. :)  What I came up with is ok, but I know that, with more confidence, I will do better.  Practice, practice, practice!


Thanks for looking.....

OCC Simply Watercoloring-Day 2

This is my second attempt for this bear.  I had it done yesterday but just as I was finishing up, I dropped a paintbrush filled with black paint.  You guessed it....all over my work.  Soooo I just decided that I should begin again  the next day and I just finished    This was a cute and useful lesson.  If you need a certain look and don't have the stamp for it, you can just create it.  I like this idea!  lol


I need desperate help with shading but all in all I liked making this.

See you later....

OCC Simple Watercoloring-Day 1

Today is the first day of the OCC Simple Watercoloring.  This is very different from other Online Card Classes.  So far no stamps or dies are being  used. It is mostly freehand.  Now I don't mind the challenge, I just hope I can meet it. lol.  Today was about graphite transfer.  The lesson example was numbers in plaid, and yeah, I didn't want to do that, although it was interesting, I wanted to do something along the same line, but different.  This is my attempt:
I did like the way it came out, and I do think I can do better.

Thanks for stopping by....see you soon.

The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge Day 29

Hi,
Today I water colored a stamp from Impression Obsession.  This stamp is hilarious!  It has a lot of humorous sentiments and it is darn cute.   I bought it last year but still don't feel like I have used it enough, I like is so much. Also this is a great stamp for masculine cards.


This is a blue footed booby, lol!  I stamped and water colored the image, and I drew in the road and the sign.  The sentiment is from the stamp set.  I used Sakura Koi watercolors, the travel kit.  I take this kit with me on car trips, it also includes a water brush and a palette.  It is super easy to use. 

The challenge is over soon and I have had a great time coloring everyday.  This is the first year that I have colored something pretty much every day.

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back soon....

The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 21

Hello!
I used a Art Impressions stamp today.  My intention was to copic color all of the stamp images and draw in the background.  Wellll when I was almost halfway done coloring, I realized I had stamped the image crooked. Sigh...    So I finished coloring and then cut it out and paper pieced a background for the card.


This is an older stamp but I have always really loved it.  The 'girls' look like they are having a really good time!  I looked hard for the appropriate sentiment for this stamp, and couldn't find anything I liked.  Then I found this sentiment from  Stampingbella, which I think works well.

The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge-Day 17

Hi,
Hope your weekend is going well!  This is the what I colored today:


This is  the Beautiful Flowers stamp from Simon Says Stamp.  This came in the card kit for June, and I can't put it down! Seriously I have used it sooo many times already and have loved everything made from it. It is a gorgeous stamp and you can color this with so many mediums.  Today I stamped with Versafine ink and then used SSS Clear embossing powder over the ink, and heat embossed.  I colored with Distress Oxide inks.  I also added some splatters, which for once turned out pretty well, usually  they look weird to me.  lol  After I stamped the sentiment, I decided I wanted to color the HAPPY, and of course I had already cleaned up my paints. :(   So I used Zig markers to fill in the letters in complimentary colors.

Thanks for stopping by....

For today's coloring I used Stacey Yakula stamps from Purple Onion Design.  These are the cutest stamps, evah!! lol  I just love them and Purple Onion has a new release, and I can't wait to get my hands on some new stamps.

This is what I colored today:


I colored with Copics, and accented a bit with Prismacolor pencils.  The sky is Distress Inks, using a stencil from Hero Arts.  I love this stencil, sooo easy to use, and I always get good results.
