Believe in the Magic

It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls
and our New Designer Lisa E has chosen a cutie!

Now you won't find many snowmen in my craft room,
luckily I have a very old Gina K stamp set called
There's Snow One Like You
and there are two 'snowpeople' too.
I heat embossed them in black, coloured 
and fussy cut carefully.
My background is lightly coloured in blue
and added lots of snow.
Die cut a partial circle after stamping
some snowflakes.
Added some Liquid Pearls and glitter
to part of the hats and positioned them.
Finished with a big snowflake with pearl centre,
sentiment, inked edges and
on to white card base.
This was rather fun to play around with.
Check out what our Guests - 
Chrissie and Stef created then
scroll down to the Teams makes.
Love to see yours in our Gallery.

Sending my snowpeople over to 

Thanks for popping in.
Till next time -

It's Your Day

 The first thing I noticed when I saw the 
was the beautiful card by my friend Nancy
and I commented to her at the time I would like to
watercolour one of the STAMPlorations In Bloom stamps
that we both have and use Lindy's Magical's too.
Thanks Nancy for being my enabler. 
I finally got to make it.
I used the In Bloom Precious Plumerias
with a variety of bright coloured Lindy's Magical's
and Ken Olivers Metallic Metals
after heat embossing in white onto
Canson WC paper.
Wetting my paper I let the fun begin
adding colours till I was happy with the result.
Added some splatters and sentiment from
Inspired by Stamping (no longer in business)
Attached to metallic card base to blend with the
watercolour cream colour.
I have had a blast playing around with different
loose watercolouring. Something I haven't done
with stamped images for ages. Now makes three LOL
My Mix is - 
Watercolouring, Magical's, heat embossing, 
stamping, splattering.

Thanks for visiting.
Catch you again soon.

Sending Hugs

Having a little fun play time for the
CAS Mix Up Challenge and for the first one of the year
we are to do loose water colouring.
Details Here

I thought I would try something a little different 
by die cutting my images with acetate and inking
but was too thick so were then cut
with watercolour paper. While they were still together
I wet the paper and sprinked with Lindy's Magical's
in Alpine Ice Rose, Cathedral Pines Green
and Nuvo Cherry Bomb Shimmer Powder. 
After I had taken them out
I sponged through the negative cuts to use as a background, 
adding more colour to the die cut flowers as needed.
I then added some Distress Grit Paste through
Tim's Speckles stencil before adding the flowers
 in a different order to the front using the 
back watercolouring as a shadow.

Here's a close up. I had a hard time getting a clear photo
of the whole card.
Hope this qualifies as loose watercolouring.

Added a sentiment from a CB tag die
and tied a pink cotton bow.
Attached to card base to complete.
My Mix is - loose watercolouring, sponging, stencilling,
die cutting, stamping.
Hoping to make a more traditional 
loose water colouring card before the end of this challenge.
I am having so much fun.
Thanks for a fabulous Challenge.
