Let's play under the Sun beam! | Magnolia Designer team Blog Hop

Hello friends!
I am so happy to see you again on my special post :)

Big Welcome to the Magnolia BLOG HOP
sponsored by Magnolia rubber stamps in Sweden! 
With the Sun Beam collection!
I’m delighted to be part of a blog hop from the Magnolia designer team (more about the hop and giveaways below).

If you came here from Maria Irene you are on the right track.
However if you've just happen upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Erika's blog

Today I have a Spring card featuring the top of my favorite on this collection : Tilda with Foxy 
in fact I can't choose just one from this collection because all of them is way too cute to skip.

I decided to focus on the images it self for my card today and do some free watercolor painting for the background using watercolor paint.

I wanted to create a simple card with a whimsical story, Tilda and Foxy will be the main focus along with the word also from the Sun Beam collection that I think it was really beautiful to go together.
I took some photos when I paint the pine tress and share with you here;

To begin, I stamped the image using Ranger Dye ink and color her with several kind of watercolor mediums like distress ink (Vintage photo) for her skin, Faber Castell watercolor pencil for the hair and other was coloring using watercolor paint.
I didn't use any masking fluid to cover the image but instead I use a brush with good sharp point to paint the background.
I mix Sap Green with Dioxazine Violet to get the the natural color of the soil that I want.

Next, I lightly painting the sky  and the color I use are Turquoise, Prussian blue and the color of Indigo.

Once the sky is completely dry I start to paint the pine trees, I paint the distant pine trees first and I am using several color of blue and green ( Prussian, Peacock green) with generous amount of  water.

The closer pine trees, I paint with a mixture of green and sepia. I added a dark color to show depth and to give more interest on the painting.

To finish, I stamp the sentiment, added some foam  just under the focal panel so they have some dimension, layering with a designed paper from Magnolia and now it's a wrap!

Now it is tie to hop over to my wonderful team mate Camilla H 's blog and enjoy her fabulous creation!

Bunny Parade #4 | Bunny and her carrot

Hello, friends ..

It’s already the 14th of March and it means Easter just few week ahead!
oh! oh! I have to hurry with my another bunny .. LOL!!

In today’s episode I’m making a Spring card featuring an adorable bunny from Magnolia back to years ago along with a Tilda pick a carrot :)
I love how they go together, so cute and well blended!

Card Details :

I started working on this card by stamping the images and coloring them using distress ink except Tilda's hair I use Faber Castell watercolor pencils.
I cut the frame using Magnolia DooHickey as well as the other decoration.
I used a layer of white fun foam to mount my main Tilda and bunny image onto the center of my card, I do double layers for the fence and the floral.

I have a little announcement ;)

Bunny Parade #3 | Another spring pages using Magnolia stamps

Hello again dear readers!
We are arriving to March and sure spring is just about few weeks ahead! and to welcoming March I have a blog post today and it is my another spring spread using some bunny :)
Here is my another bunnies;

With Spring being not that far away I reached for my spring stamps from Magnolia and here I use three kind of stamps. One of my spring stamps from Magnolia is the bunny that released some time ago with the name : It's Spring Time

All bunnies start to busy aren't they ?
and what about your goal for this spring ?
I love to re-write a quote that I found around a motivational book and a short word that made me smile ear to ear :
Every bunny need some bunny, sometimes
so true!

I apologize that I didn't write the details of my journal this time but hopefully the picture speaks for you :)
Have a beautiful day everyone!
