Hummingbird Thoughts

Happy Saturday!!! :-) I worked this morning and came home and decided to sit out on the porch and do some watercoloring while Grant (my son) played in the yard. :) I watercolored this beautiful hummingbird image using my peerless watercolor papers. I love them! They are so vibrant and gorgeous. It is hard to tell but I added some wink of stella clear glitter on the hummingbird and the center of the flowers. I hope you like this creation! This card is for today's Inspiration challenge. I used this image as my inspiration. :)

Have a great day!

Flowers Just for You

HAPPY HAPPY FRIDAY!!! So early this morning while everyone was still sleeping I decided to try my hand at some watercoloring! :) I stamped all of the flowers and leaves using Tim Holtz distress inks. Then I let them dry completely. I added water with a water brush to spread the color from the outlines into the centers. It softened everything beautifully. After completely coloring all of the flowers I went in with some added colors for the centers. Then added a little wink of stella clear glitter on the top of the flower centers.

I added some spots using my water brush with water and also flicked some on with ink in my water brush. :) Then to finish off the card I added the sentiment.

I hope you love this!

Across the Miles

Happy Thursday! I made this card very early this morning... like 2am before heading to bed. :) This is for this Thursday's "Ways to Use it" challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  We are supposed to make a card for someone we don't know to brighten their day. :)

I started by stamping the little fox and balloons in stazon ink onto some watercolor paper. I watercolored the fox and balloons using my Peerless Watercolor Papers. They are so vibrant and gorgeous!!! :) I used my die-cuts that match Mama Elephant's Up & Away stamp set to cut out the images. :)

I used my die cuts for the grass and clouds and then glued them onto the vellum. Added some enamel dots. Also colored all of the balloon with my clear wink of stella glitter pen and covered them in glossy accents. :)

I hope this made you smile!

Have a great day!

A fun little watercolored card for you today! I made this this morning for today's color challenge. I ended up making 4 cards total for the color challenge. LOL! It is so simple to do these watercolor cards that in 10 minutes or less I have a card made. It's so relaxing and just perfect to get my eyes a break from staring at the computer editing my photography! LOL!

I stamped the flowers and sentiment in versamark. Then embossed the images in white embossing powder. Then added watercolors over the top. I absolutely love how it came out!! :)

Hugs, Ash-
