Birthday card for my husband June 18, 2018


Day 18 of #thedailymarker coloring challenge is a birthday card for my husband, Tad. I used the  My Favorite Things Viking stamp and balloon alphabet dies to create this card.  The goal of the coloring challenge is to color something daily, even if it's a only for a few minutes, because we are all happier when we color or be creative.

Hello Watercolor Friends,

Hello Watercolor Friends,

5014 - WC Window Set
4868 - WC Flower Set 2
4867 - WC Foliage Set 2
4964 - WC Branches Set
5009 - WC Mini Flower Set
4051 - WC Foliage Set 1
4208 - Furries TF

Marvy LePlume II Pens used:
NO. 45 sepia

Watercolor Weekend April 21, 2018








Hello Watercolor Friends,

This is my project for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend roundup. I thought these little .99 cent cardboard boxes from Hobby Lobby would make cute keepsake boxes for my granddaughters. I painted this one white and then attached the watercolored scene to the top using extra strong double sided tape. I used five stamp sets and four markers to create it.  See my list of supplies below:

5011 - WC Truck Mini Set
5012 - WC Wishing Well Set
5009 - WC Mini Flower Set
4051 - WC Foliage Set 1
5016 - WC Mini Critter Set

Marvy LePlume II Pens used:
NO. 45 sepia
NO. 72 pine green
NO. 86 African violet
NO. 20 magenta

4774 - Stamp positioner
4773 - Acrylic Blocks
