Pinkfresh Studio Thank You Cards

Hello everyone! Today, I want to share with you two watercolor cards with my favorite Full Bloom stamp set.


 For my first card, I stamped beautiful floral cluster with black inks onto piece of watercolor paper. 

Then I wet the paper with clean water and watercolored the flowers using Bubblegum and Candy Apple Pinkfresh Studio liquid watercolors. For the leaves I mixed Emerald City with little bit Espresso color. 


Once my coloring was done I splattered my panel with the leftover paint and also with white paint.


My second card is the same as first, but I used different colors. For the flowers I used Bubble Gum, Lavender and Sky Blue. And I used Emerald City and Key Lime for the leaves. The sentiment is from Simple Blossoms stamp set.


Hope you liked my cards! Have a great day!

Guest Design for The Gray Muse

Hello everyone! Today I am super excited to be a guest designer for The Gray Muse blogI have two cards for you with some gorgeous stamp sets from The Gray Muse shop. 


For my first card I've started by stamping the image from HUGS stamp set with Antique Linen distress inks onto a piece of watercolor paper. Next, I watercolored the flowers and leaves using my favorite watercolors. 



Once my watercoloring was done I decided to add more interest with partial embossing. I stamped the image again with clear embossing inks and covered it with gold embossing powder.


Then I removed some of the powder from the leaves and flowers, as not to lose the no-line watercolor look and left the powder on the sentiment and a little around it before heat that. To finished my card I've added a few sequins.





For my second card I started by blending a white piece of paper with Antique Linen distress and then stamped the image from BE KIND stamp set with black ink over my blended panel. 


I colored the flowers and the leaves with Copic markers and finished my card with clear sequins and pearls.

That's all for today! Thank you so much Ruby for this amazing opportunity!

Hope you liked my cards! Have a great weekend!

PINKFRESH STUDIO JANUARY 2020 STAMP & DIE RELEASE BLOG HOP


Hello and welcome to an exciting Pinkfresh Studio release! This release is packed full of beautiful stamps and dies and we hope this blog hop will inspire you! 


Today I did no-line coloring using new Just Because set and adding sentiment die also from the release feauturing Pinkfresh studio liquid watercolors. These watercolors are pretty vibrant and saturated, but when I do the no-line coloring I prefer more muted and transparent colors.


So, I mixed my own colors on my palette to get a more interesting effect. I mixed bright red and orange with brown color for the flowers, and green, blue and black for the leaves.


 I did a watercolor wash at first and then I've stamped the big cluster from Just Because stamp set with Antique Linen Distress inks onto piece of watercolor paper and watercolored the images.


Once my coloring was done done I’ve added more deep shades using Prismacolor pencils. For the sentiment I die cutting You using new Sentiment Suite: You die set out of gold cardstock and adhered on top of my panel. 

Then I stamped 'You make little things exciting so' from Just Because stamp set with clear embossing ink on a tiny stripe of black cardstock and white heat embossed and foam mounted it on top of my card. 



To finished my card I’ve added a few sparkling droplets and clear sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
