A little bit of this, and a little bit of that

I have made a few more cards, just very slow at creating posts.

I experimented a little more with some water colouring. It really was fun, except my watercolour paint is a real cheapy so I could not quite get the look I wanted, not sure if the quality of the water colour medium has any effect or not, but I am going to stick to that excuse.

The next card I made for a friend's daughter's first birthday.  I coloured the little elephant with copics and added some sequence and glitter to make it more girly.  I hand wrote the setiment, hehe, I did not have a sentiment that says 1st birthday, and took a chance hand writing it.  It could've looked a little better, but it wasn't totally bad.

That's it for today.  Not going to write long winded posts, who has he time to read them.
Take care

Watercolour attempt

I have seen SO much water colouring lately and I must say I really really really, like it a LOT!!! LOL! Of course this means that I had to try it. I have so many hobby things and yet I had to go buy something new. I hardly use what I have and have lately started to realise that my hobby has become buying hobby stuff. It's so sad, I really wish I had more time.

Anyhow, I bought a few tim holtzs mini distress inks... I wanted all the colours, yes, only 3 or so would not do, but I was very good and only bought 2 sets. Is it possible to be happy with what you have and not always wanting something else.

So here is my attempt at watercolouring. The image I bought 2 years ago, and finally opened the packet it came in. I coloured it with the tim holtz distress inks. Not too much work done here to mention, but it's my favourite new style, as simplle as possible.

There are so many things I could have done better, but you live and learn and hopefully next time my water colouring cards look as good as the one's I have seen.

That's it from me. Take care.

Slowly but surely

So, I did it. I made one card the whole weekend, lol! I really wanted to make two, but only managed one. I did do some colouring though, which took up the time I planned to make the other card. I guess another image to be used is never a bad thing, however, just having coloured images are never going to result in any cards, hehe.

I bought this stamp last year when Purple Onion Designs had a sale, I straight away coloured this cute little rabbit, but it's been sitting in my hobby room ever since. I have noticed lately the trend is very plain, mostly white cards. I must say I really like it, except if I keep making cards like this I will have a LOT of paper pads that are never going to get used, and I do have a lot of them.

I used copics to colour the image and my pencils for the ground. I can't seem to manage doing the ground with copics yet. I must say I am enjoying the copics a lot, and have lately tried water colouring too, not sure about that just yet. Need to practice more, lol!!

Well that's it from me. Still loving this hobby so much.

LOL, is that a bunny, I don't think so!!!

60 and still Fabulous

I have been trying to post this post for 3 months.....! My aunt turned 60 in April, and as I had not been very good at making cards lately, I ended up giving her this one. I think it was still good, because she would look just as glamorous as these 4 in a bathing suite. I bought a few of these Art Impressions stamps in December and finally stamped and coloured some images. Fortunately I had this image just about finished when I decided to make her a card.
Anyhow, she's a lot more slender than these four ladies, but seeing they are looking so fab in their swimwear I thought she would appreciate it, she is always well dressed and so smart. As in the past, I'm still not that good with adding sentiments to my cards, hehe. But inside I did say 60 and still fabulous. Anyhow, that's it from me. Just cannot find time to make cards, it's so frustrating....

And finally

I've made two cards, lol! Better than nothing?

Decided to try those copics after all these years.  Doesn't mean I'm not using my pencils again.  I enjoyed the copics, but they do take getting used to.

This is the second card I did.   Don't look at the stain / mark on it :-(.   That's from it standing out on display waiting for its photo to be taken.

This was the first!  I had to cut out the image cause the paper was definitely not good with copics, my image bled so much. 

PS: not easy doing a post on an iPad.   But that's the reason for it being short and sweet!
