Warm Winter Wishes

...this week just flew by and I barely got time to stop by my blog and post something new and before I know it the year would be gone too...hmmnn...a year older..a year wiser..hopefully!

 Today's card has Crafter's Companion stamps, watercolors, Spectrum Noir blendable colored pencils and a tiny bit of sketching.

I stamped the Cinnamon sticks from the CC Sheena -A little Bit Festive -Christmas Cocoa set and then very lightly sketched the candle and the blue base . I then colored all the images with a pale wash of watercolors and then went over them with colored pencils and that is what adds depth and shine to the picture.

Here is a closer look...

Thanks so much for stopping by and for more inspiration, do stop by CC FB page and blog. Have a fun weekend!

edited to add-

 I forgot to mention, I am clearing out my studio and have a lot of scrapbooking patterned papers, wood mounted stamps  like Stampin up, Anna Griffin etc..tons of stickers and metal short scrapbooking stuff.... would anyone be interested in them?

 I would love for them to find a new home instead of sitting in my drawers unused. They are older ones but new and unused. Some patterned paper packs have a sheet or two used. Some stamps are gently used . 
There are no inks, stamp pads, or any kind of coloring medium in the box.

If there is sufficient interest I shall take pictures and post them here. I will be selling them as a each box will be a surprise .They will come  in USPS medium flat rate box  priced low enough for me to cover just the basics and shipping , since medium flat rate boxes cost $ 12 plus to ship. 

US residents only please..because that way  I can track the packages . 

If you are interested leave me a comment below or send me an email.

Heart and Soul

 A quick post on this super busy Monday morning!

I had this card done last week and forgotten to share it! The mouse stamp is by Unity stamps and it's from their Stamp of the week kit ( SOTW)  which is a subscription based program here to read more about it.

 I stamped the mouse  and sentiment and sketched the chair for it to sit on!  It's colored with watercolors.

That's all for now ..have a wonderful week ahead!

Thank You!

 Hello there, am back with another Crafter's Companion project for you! For this card, I have used stencils and ink.... no watercolors at all! 

These new stencils by Sheena are simply lovely and I love the designs. this one is my personal favorite! I simply inked/ sponged the ink and called it done..easy peasy!

Stencils-Sheena- Paris Springtime
Distress ink,
Stamp-sentiment- Brambly hedge-The High Hills

This card was made for the Crafter's Companion December challenge. The theme this month is 'Thank You'  and you have an entire month to join in, so check it out. For more inspiration , do stop by our blog and Facebook page.

Thanks for stopping  by today and have a wonderful week ahead!

Unity Blog Hop - video

I have a dream ......a love....a  love for the mountains ....and have always imagined myself settling down.... someday... in a tiny little cottage with mountains all around me . ...waking up to the chirping of birds and the soft hush of a gentle little stream which might be coming down the mountains as the snow melts and  standing in the balcony of my little cottage looking  at the snow capped peaks with a mug of steaming hot coffee made by my husband ( he makes some really good coffee!)
.....hopefully this dream will come true someday..
...............until then I paint and look at it and feel happy!

Welcome back to Unity blog hop and this week I am showcasing the current Kit Of The Month and SMAK.

Here is a video showing how this card came to life...

So how are all my US friends doing.....tummy still full? wondering what to do with the leftovers? lol!
......hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

It was  a quiet and peaceful holiday for shopping ...just caught up on reading, painting and spending some quality time at home. 

Here is a card I made using Crafter's Companion - Moonbeam Meadow Christmas-Magical star. I stamped the image and masked it using masking fluid. Then applied watercolors to the background. Once dry, I peeled the masking and colored the image using Spectrum Noir blendable colored pencils. Also added a bit of stickles for some glittery sparkle.

Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

 After a very long time, am playing along Papertrey Ink Nov Blog hop! Until last year, this used to be on the top of my 'arty' to do list ..and than I got busy with DT schedules and would invariably forget the date!

But not today....I had put a reminder on my phone this month and here is my card for this month's theme-Snow.

I have used Papertrey Ink stamps- City Scene and Stylish sentiments- holiday . I stamped the Big Ben on wet paper and immediately went around it with a damp brush to soften the edges. Once dry I stamped the inner layer and sketched the trees.

 Here is a closer look at the snow splattering.....

.... off to hop now...

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week ahead!
