Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by! I am loving the colors that Cindy chose for Color Hues #84, Peach and Green. I was going through some of my dies a while back and found this die that I'd forgotten about. So I put it in my "need to use" pile.  These colors worked perfectly for it. I had the outline already cut from white cardstock in the envelope and cut another from a scrap of mixed media paper, keeping the inside pieces intact. I love coloring die cuts and one of my favorite ways to do it is sitting on a piece of mixed media paper so my over-wash gives me a perfectly co ..read more

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by! It's color week at Just Us Girls and the colors make me think of Halloween, but I went in a different direction.  The colors? Purple, Orange and Mustard! I pressed some Wilted Violet on my craft mat and spritzed with water to smoosh the  bottom portion of a mixed media panel, dried it and smooshed some more.  Then I  pressed Villainous Potion on my mat and repeated for a little contrast. I used the same technique on the the top portion with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade. Then to figure out what to put on the piece? I'v ..read more

Hello Friend

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by! I have a stack of Betterpress designs waiting to be colored.  It seems like there's always something else that needs to be done and coloring gets put aside. With a color choice of peach and green, I had to push life out of the way and get my brush wet! It was so much fun coloring this with Arteza Twi-markers. After coloring the image, I usually  do a wash with blue re-inker.  Since Color Hues  wants us to use just the two colors and any neutrals the blue was out. The drop of Brushed Corduroy Distress re-inker in my dish ca ..read more

Flutter into Spring

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by! I was able to get two for one with this pressing of Spellbinders'  Flutter Into Spring. When I pressed it I placed the sentiment in what turned out to be an awkward place. I went ahead and colored the images using my Arteza Twi-markers.  I was so pleased with  the way these markers worked on the Betterpress paper. I die cut the panel bypassing the hummingbird and sentiment. The dots are Nuvo Crystal drops and the design is placed on an embossed background. Since the hummingbird was all colored, he needed to be put on a card to ..read more

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by! I had so much fun coloring this card! A sweet friend sent me some pressings from her Betterpress collection and I have been squeezing in a few minutes every day to color.  This time I colored with Zigs.   I hadn't used them for a long time. The color really soaks into this paper which is a good thing for rich color, not so good for lighter colors.  So I swiped some on my palette and picked up the color with my waterbrush for the lighter shades. I wondered if my mini slimline dies would fit in the sentiment space and was hap ..read more

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by! It's been a busy month with a class and I'm finally free to do some coloring. I used the Color Hues colors that Carol chose - Cream and Blue and a NBUS stamp. I've stamped with Archival ink onto hot press watercolor paper as it has a creamy color  and colored with my Altenew watercolors. When it was dry, I masked the flowers and leaves and lightly stamped script in the background with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  It's the creamiest color I could find. Then I splattered.  I was able to Breathe when I didn't ruin it! The tearing ..read more

Cover Die Eclipse Technique for Group of Seven

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by! We used a different (to me) technique at the Group of Seven Cardmakers  this month.  I will admit that I did some shopping to get some cover plates that I though would work for this technique. After seeing Julia's gorgeous blue and white card I wondered how patterned paper would work for this technique.  This pack of paper has two pieces of some designs, one of paper and one of vellum.  I used the vellum piece as the base and die cut the paper. In hindsight, I think I would like it better if I used the darker piece as the bas ..read more
