CAS Watercolor Challenge: Unity Stamps Poppies



I saw the April CAS Watercolor challenge was Poppy.  I have been water coloring more and I remembered this humongous poppy from Unity I have.  I have been using my Spectrum Noir Aqua markers more, I thought most were used up, but I was happily surprised to see that once I sorted through them that I really still have a ton of colors.  I do need to replace my blues.  











Main Ingredients:
Unity Donna Downey Poppy Stamps (Rubber Cling), Unity Lisa Arana Blossoming Thoughts & Wishes (Rubber Cling)
Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers: Amber, Begonia, SUnflower, Meadow, Bud Green
Le Pen Black Fineliner
Pentel Signo White Gel Pen
Canson Illustration Paper 


Lately I haven't been creating very much.  Truth is, I've been very under the weather since November and last night I had my Tonsils removed.  I have a stress condition and it elevated to extreme acid reflux.  I thought it was just congestion from a lingering cold. Anyway, it aggravated my tonsils to the point of ulceration and they got so inflamed that the swelling never went down.  I was prescribed 3 different rounds of different antibiotics, and after a follow up visit with a specialist, I was told they need to come out.  So here I sit in pain, trying to create to take my mind off it.  Hope your Easter weekend is better!

Day 7 - The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge



We have had a cold spurt here and snow and 
icy roads,  A SNOW Day!  
My boy was, and is, an Angel and scraped our
walkway and spent a ton of time helping my husband fix the
garage door.  I take my mom to chemo every week and we trek through the garage, every week it is an epic event for me to get the door to stay down.  It is like it is laughing.. Seriously after 20 times of going halfway up and then back down, I lose it and it sets my mood to be grumpy when I should be better for my mom.
Finally it is fixed.  Yay!  Small miracles!

Day 4 - The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge





Another session of coloring.

Grab our button


 For this image I really blended a ton of colors.  It was calming to sit and blend.  I still try not to think too much as I don't feel my blending is very good. With watercolor, I really let the colors do as they wish.  For copics I don't feel that I can really get the colors to blend as well as they could.   I am being stress free about this, and (really trying not to) will not judge my work.  I hear we are our worst critics.  

Supplies:
Stamps: Penny Black, Fun in the Sun 30-074, 
Sweet Wishes 30-104
Paper: Julie Ebersole/Ellen Hutson Bristol, 
American Crafts Shimelle/Gemini 374022
Copics: Listed Below

Day 3 - The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge





I thought that I should maybe color something with a fun current theme.  Valentine's Day!  



This Penny Black Set Jumbo Love has so many cute images that it was hard to pick.  I think that takes me the most time.  Making up my mind on what to use.  I tried my blending brushes out for the first time.  A little bit of "It's a girl" Catherine Pooler ink on the inner panel of this precut card.  Wow, I must say they definitly make a difference over sponges.  Usually I over ink and gets splotches, with these brushes, smooth coverage and a fantastic even blend!


Supplies:
Stamps: Penny Black, Jumbo Love 30-209, 
Mimi at Play 30-111
Paper: Julie Ebersole/Ellen Hutson Bristol, 
Misc Pre-Made Card 
Inks: Catherine Pooler: Party Dress, It's a Girl
Blending Brush, Large
