Tucker, Toadstool, Flit & Flutter

Hello, my friends! It's release day over at Purple Onion Designs. The super duper cute new collection The Sweetest Day is available starting today! I am sharing a card made using some of the new images.


I can't get enough of Stacey's images. I love how easy it is to built a scene with the images from this collection. =) I used Tucker, Toadstool and Flit & Flutter for my card.


I used a few different watercolor methods to make this scene. The cute little Tucker is colored with watercolor pencils and a water brush on watercolor paper then cut out.


The background is created by dragging a piece of watercolor paper through a pool of ink that contains Tumbled Glass and Bundled Sage distress inks with lots of water. I then stamped Toadstool, Flit & Flutter and the sentiment from The Sweetest Day Sentiment Set with archival ink before coloring the butterflies with watercolor pencils. The Toadstool and the ground are colored with a mixture of watercolor pencils and watercolor crayons and a water brush. It was really fun making this card! =)

That's all for now. Don't forget to check out the new The Sweetest Day collection here! =)



Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!

Such a cute card and love your watercoloring skills! Can I just ask, what cleaner do you use to clean off the archival ink from your stamps?

Oh my goodness, this is so darn cute! and your coloring is just gorgeous.

He reminds me of that song I used to sing as a child, "There was a snail called Herbert who was so very slow. He caused a lot of traffic jams wherever he would go. The ants were always getting mad the beetles, they would fume! But Herbert always poked along and sang this little tune: Have patience, have patience, don't be in such a hurry..." Do you know it?
