Watercolor and Butterflies

This month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is sharing the new arrival of Eileen's Heartfelt Collection releasing in April.  I made a simple "messy" card featuring the new Heartfelt Birds and Butterflies Thinlit 6 pack die cut in felt.  

This is a quick easy card you can make in a hurry if needed.


This is a simple watercolor card, quick messy and fun!  A few die cuts, a little embossing and inking.


After the inking mess and die cuts a little dimension never hurts to the Stitched Oval.  I created a little peek with the Wildflowers cut out.


A simple card... with butterflies and wildflowers.


 The felt layered butterfly is a perfect spring card.


The Nuance Powders are soft and subtle for the background and embossed areas.


The great thing using a negative cut for the card means I have the wildflower to use.  Here it's inked with Nuance Powders and layered inside with a Handwritten Thanks die cut.


Embossing is a quick way to add dimension as we all know.  Why not add some colour.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
