A Whale of a Time by Jeannie

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Gerda Steiner’s recently released stamp set called A Whale of a Time. I hope you love the card I created today as much as I do.
 
I've been in a creative funk and so I just wanted to sit down and watercolor and see what happened. I started out with the idea of a light blue sky and the ocean. The more I added color, the more I changed my mind to an early morning sunrise. I recently was in Denver, and they had these amazing skies filled with so many different colors. It was so gorgeous.
 
Watercoloring turned out really well and I'm definitely not a pro. I just added different colors to create an ombre yellow, orange, pink. Then for the ocean, I added a couple layers of different shades of blue and green. With watercolors, you build up the layers of colors so I dried the card panel and then continued to add more and more colors.
 
 
 
I decided to use the two whales that appear to be looking at each other. They are so adorable and I just imagined them swimming side by side and this was the perfect background for it. Don't you think? To finish off the card, I added the sentiment in the sky.
 
Thanks for stopping by! Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

Per usual, I went first with a scene card because I wanted to use all the stamp images. I stamped everything out and masked everything as well because I wanted to do an ink blended background. I first blended browns and greens for the...

Girl and Bunny

February 23, 2020

 Hi, Margreet here.
I created a spring card with the sweet digital stamp Girl and Bunny from Gerda Steiner Designs.
I started with glueing the design paper onto a kraft card. I distressed the DP with a paper distresser.
Then I die cut the grass border twice and glued it on the border with the bunnies.
Printed and colored the image with copics, fussy cut and placed it behind the die cut with the...
