Watercolouring in cohesive colours - Altenew Watercolour colouring book & Brushes!

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team.  Today I was able to create a lovely big card (5x7") using one of the stunning florals in the Altenew Watercolour colouring book. This watercolour colouring book has so many beautiful florals to colour, whether you turn them in to a card or just use them to practice. I took the Polychromatic cardmaking class at the Altenew academy and it inspired this card today.  Written and photos Watercolouring in cohesive colours: Start off by laying a flat colour wash of a pale pink/red onto a petal on...

Sometimes a whole 6" x 6" card base can be over whelming , so why not scale down your card.

Hi There, Crafty Friends,  Apologies for my absence  last week, we had a slight family emergency with my daughter. But she is on the road to recovery now so I'm back today.  Sometimes its dauting to decide now to fill your card, with a design. So if this is the case I tend to sc ale things down. Let Me Show You!

Partial die-cut heat embossed border card - Pink Fresh Studio - Leafy Decor

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. So who says leaves have to be green?! I thought this Leafy Decor stamp from PinkFresh Studio would be a great stamp for partial die-cutting to create a border card. And I think it turned out quite well. I decided to go for an alternative colour scheme, as I wanted to play with colour more, rather than stay with traditions. Hopefully, you'll think it's a success - for me, it is a success!

Hello lovelies!This week I'm sharing another love themed card, I like to have a few extra of this style on hand to show my appreciation for people throughout the year.  I die cut a panel from watercolour paper using Mama Elephant's "Basic Rectangles" Creative Cuts and a large scalloped panel from black card stock using Mama Elephant's "Framed Tags" Waverly Creative Cuts.
