THE GREETING FARM BLOG


This set is absolutely adorable! I love all the images and as soon as I got it, I knew I had to create this little scene that seems fitting for the sentiment included in the set. I stamped my two images on watercolor paper using my MISTI so I could stamp twice and get a good impression on the textured paper. Then I added the balloons with the same method and started watercoloring. I used a combination of Jane Davenport Mixed Media watercolors (for the skin tones) and Daniel Smith Watercolors for the clothes, balloons and background. I drew in the strings myself then stamped the sentiment. I added some Spectrum Noir glitter pens to the balloons and sealed them with glossy accents for just a bit of dimension. Then I adhered the watercolor panel to my card base using foam tape. 

Don’t forget you must leave a comment on each blog listed in order to be eligible for the prize drawing.

Happy Hopping!
