Pirate and Ocean Night Sky

I'm playing with watercolor toady. I'm not very good at watercolor, so painting a small area works better for me! The watercolor I'm using is Daniel Smith for the background and zig clean real brush for the pirate.

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.

Deer Friend Thanks

Welcome to my first card of 2018! Although it's a thank you card, but you can see a little hint of winter in the card.

For the background, I took a dark grey cardstock from MFT (same color as the one I used for sentiments) and inked music notes background with distress ink iced spruce. Then I applied very thin layer of distress ink faded jeans to the top. Finally I splattered some white acrylic paint for snow effect. I hope you enjoy this card.

Yeti And The Snowy Village

Time for one more Xmas card! In this card I first started off by stamping all the images such as yeti, houses and trees with a little masking involved. After I masked everything, I ink blended the background with distress ink. Mostly chipped sapphire plus a little bit of broken china and tumbled glass. After I white embossed the sentiment, I splattered some water on the background and decorated the sky with white gel pen and Nuvo white crystal drops. After I Copic colored the images, I layed down lots of Ranger stickles frosted lace on the ground where houses and yeti stands. Unfortunately they are not very visible in the picture.

So this is the card I made. Everything was colored using copic markers.
