Giraffe Illustration


June the giraffe! I think she is a cousin or something of April. Remember pregnant April the giraffe? The projects this month are amazing! I think I'm going to try to make a project that uses some of the Animal House Animals on envelopes. I love envelope art!

Watercoloring Delightful Daisies!

Yes, daisies are delightful!  Especially ones that are named Delightful Daisies. I did this quick video using a technique I've never played with before.  I heat embossed the stamped image with a sparkle black powder (hard to see the sparkle in the video) then I watercolored the image.  Interesting technique which allowed for quick coloring.  I didn't have to wait for paint to dry with the raised heat embossed lines. Also, I'm not a super good card maker so this was one of the cards that turned out ok!

Fun With Flamingos

Illustrations, Floyd and Frannie the Flamingos here for your card making fun! These guys were a specific request from the Technique Tuesday team. They said, "Draw flamingos!" I said, "I guess I can do that?" I did figure it out. Thank goodness for illustrator. Those legs would have been hard to free hand straight. One reason I wouldn't have thought of creating flamingos is that they are pink. That's it, just pink. No fun to color. BUT they have been more fun than I thought. The design team is creating beautiful projects!

Below Jill made a card with the flamingos and they are adorable! I'm still so thrilled to see what the design team comes up with when they play with the designs.
