MIM #347

MAKE IT MONDAY 
Winter Watercolor

I am joining Ashley as she shares ways to design winter watercolor cards. If you want to see her beautiful Winter cards and watch the video, go HERE
I don't have the pretty tree stamp sets Ashley used to make her lovely wintery scene, but I thought this little Pine Tree would do nicely with her water coloring technique πŸ˜‰

Using watercolor paper makes this process easy peasy and I am planning to make an underwater scene next with the additional background panels I made.
The Trees were stamped off a bit for the background forest effect as Ashley shows us and the shadows under the trees are supposed to look like snow drifts.  I used a white pen to highlight some branches and added Frosted Lace Stickles for my snow.
The sentiment is from PTI Beautiful Butterflies.

As we say goodbye to 2018 Papertrey Ink has provided their Make it Monday videos posted in 2018, allowing us to take advantage of a technique or challenge we might have missed. 

For my card, I am going to repeat MIM #312.

PTI Shape Shifters Oval 3, Beautiful Butterflies and Butterflies Layers were die cut out of pastel c/s scraps.

It was fun looking back at the 2018 MIM challenges and creating this card reminded me I should go back from time to time when making cards in different colors, stamps and dies can be either feminine or masculine. I may redo this technique for few more cards. πŸ’“

TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY 
CHALLENGE #28


I will be joining Michelle Leone today as she shares a transformation from a crisp red/aqua plaid card design to something perfect for Valentine’s Day.  
You can see her two beautiful cards HERE.

I am still hand delivering Christmas cards, so my transformed card is not a ValentineπŸ’“

I liked this card just fine and it was mailed out already ~
But I saw one of the DT members use this pretty Christmas greens frame in 2-3 soft color tones and said "Why didn't I think of that?"😏
