Chicks in school!

 He he... I am not letting the chicks go anywhere so soon! One of them is turning 4 today, good reason to learn the number in Math class! I stamped Mr. Cool, the teacher on water color paper and fussy cut him.Stamped only the outlines of chicks, rest of the scene is hand-drawn. Used leftover paper scraps for black board and trees.

I colored the chicks with pencil colors first, they looked very dull so added some more color using colored pens.
Let us see if the chicks were successful in wishing their friend.

Mission accomplished !! The chicks are from So Tweet with Evelin T Designs and sentiment from the big ,the bold and Happy  (W & W).

Floral Shaker card

Sharing a small(4*4),floral shaker card today.

The flower is from In Bloom-Addie's Garden(W & W).I often tend to put a lot of pigment while coloring and lose the beautiful effect of transparent watercolors! I controlled myself this time:) I did use more color for shadows in the end but avoided using white color pencil for highlights.

I dashed lines on white panel are from Scenery: Stripes . Sentiment from the big, the bold and Happy.

Inspired by Pop Art !

A rock makeover to this cute bird from So Tweet with Evelin T Designs (W&W), stamped them on different paper scraps and paper pieced them.

Had fun mixing & matching them! Arranged them in a grid Pop Art Style! Used Scenery : Stripes (W&W) for the grid.

The sentiment is from Big, the Bold and You.

Left over birds get to stage on bookmarks.
 Can you guess what do they say? (hint : lines)
Reading between the lines !
Next one is based on a fond memory of my friend holding a seat for me in bus everyday.

Holding for ya !
and the last one..

Anniversary card.

Looks like a simple shaker card ?Take another look ..

Nothing different ?Let us open it …!

Sentiment outside and images inside !
I was itching to color these hydrangeas (In Bloom : Addie's garden -Winnie & Walter) ever since I got the stamp and no-line water coloring being the only form I know I went for it! I have used traditional water colors (Camlin Artist Water Color) for coloring, I need to practice a lot to achieve realistic look! After coloring I masked the flowers and leaves and blended grey ink in background and ended up with a mess!

I had to do something to get rid of the ugly bg So I cut out the flowers and leaves.

 Plain bg didn’t look good either I ended up stamping few more hydrangeas in gray.

It’s inspired by Heather’s card again!

The sentiment is from the big, the bold and the Happy (Winnie & Walter).
