Dragon Birthday Wishes

In the card I'm sharing today, I'm pairing a celestial theme background die from Hero Arts card kit with the dragon stamp set from Mama Elephant. I started by watercoloring the background with 4-5 different muted tone blue and purples from Daniel Smith watercolor. After drying, I stamped the mountains/clouds and heat embossed it. I also put some white dots using white gel pen. I stamped the drgaon and wolf on another piece of watercolor paper and watercolored them with almost the same set of colors as the background. I cut them out and used doubled sided foam tape to adhere them to the card.

Baby Shower Teddies

I'm sharing a card for which I attended a baby shower for the first time and made a baby-related card for the first time. All I did was coloring the image with Prisma color pencil. What's worth mentioning is I stamped the stars with VersaMark ink and instead of heat embossing them, I applied Perfect Pearls powder on the entire cardstock. This created a very subtle look for the stars. The cardstock also had a very nice shine which is not visible in the photo.

Cat Meow Bookmarks

Hello! I'm sharing two bookmarks I made out of Mama Elephant's cat stamp set. I simply stamped the images, masked them with masking tapes, ink blended the background with distress inks, then colored the cats with Copic markers. Coloring the cats is actually the challenging part for me because I have difficulties choosing matching color combinations. Especially creating varities on a group of similar images like this definitely takes me some time to decide.

Dream Winter Deer

I made a card today that was meant to be a winter theme card but it turned out not so winter. To start off, I decided to use my favorite colors for snowy scenes as the background, which is distress ink salty ocean + ice spruce + white paint splatters. I picked up my favorite winter animal, deer as the center focus of my card. As I finished my background, I found that the background with stars looks kinda dreamy. So I decided to add some watercolored balloons to make it looks like the deer is flying. In the end, I added some iridescent stars and silver heart confetti.

Soft Color Forest Friends

Hello! I'm sharing a card today which I was very conscious about keeping my coloring soft. I'm always into soft colors but it has been difficult to maintin soft because as I add shading for dimensions, the color just gets darker and darker. I chose watercolor for this card since they tend to dry lighter.

Everything was straight forward in this card. I colored all the images with Zig clean markers. For the background, I lightly applied distresss ink antique linen on the four small rectangular MFT primitive white card stock.
