Thinking of you in Paris | Trying very loose watercolor painting

Hi folks!
It's still January and been awhile from my first post this month, lots of happened in real life but .. yey for today! I’m so pleased to share my another card :)

I am featuring a stamp image from the Paris set of Magnolia Day's special edition.

Details :
 I don’t know about you, but I am having so much fun to play with watercolor, not just to color the image but I really love to paint with watercolor.
I start working by stamped the focal image on watercolor paper and then sketched the background, I have two things that I have to keep in mind, first because I have finished the coloring step on the image then I have to be extra careful when painting the background, and the second one is I have to remember well about the Eiffel scenery from the video I watched on tv and that is not easy, I mean it!
I used Prima Watercolor  Decadent and one color from Winsor and Newton which is Carmine.

I add a sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh and that's all my sharing for today.
Thank you and Have a lovely day! 

Happy New Year ! May all your wishes come true

You might have already seen this project if you watched Magnolia YouTube Channel at the end of December. If you haven’t – It my pleasure to share it again right here on my blog.

Details :

This time I used the beautiful the goodies that I've got from Magnolia Christmas Box #21 , #22 , #23
I started working with the card; coloring the image using Distress ink except her hair {using Faber Castell Aquarell} and then make some dry embossing using a dies that also coming from the bag.
I continued water coloring the flowers and leaves and make the place card.

Here more photos for closer look;

I filmed a video tutorial showing how to create this project from start to finish. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it. Watch it below or Here :

Winter is still out there | Published on DooHickey magazine #17

Hello friends!

Thank you so much for taking your time to visiting my post, on this holiday.

If you bought the DooHickey dies club from Magnolia you might remember this card published on the magazine that come along with the die set. In case you missed it – I’m sharing this card here on my blog and will share it in my Instagram too, so do take a look!

Card Details :
I started working on my card by selecting images I wanted to use – I used Tilda with Reindeer
stamped her on a piece of watercolor paper with Ranger Dye ink - Black tie. I stick on watercolor to coloring her.
And then I gave her a winter scenery with my hand painted, I was inspired with some pictures somewhere from Internet and I tried to paint it with my imagination.
I used mostly Daniel Smith watercolors and some of Winsor and Newton - Cotman. While the snow effect were from white gouache.

This is the closer look :)
I wish .. it captured the winter quiet fine ..
 Tips :
One tip for a really easy scene: create a frame of trees around the focal image. Trees don’t have to be hard – scribbles can appear to be trees even if they are not really perfectly done!

Thank you so much for reading, sending you the warmest hugs!
