Watercolored Roses

My favorite watercolor technique is actually watercolor resist... It is such an easy technique that gives you gorgeous results every time!


I used the new God Verses stamp set released for ODBD's Anniversary Celebration. It is full of inspiring verses! The roses  were stamped and heat embossed in gold and then watercolored. For the layering I altered the Vintage Flourish Pattern filigree frame to create a small rectangular frame for the sentiment's label. I also covered the front of the card with a gorgeous distress wood pattern from the Rustic Beauty Paper Collection and finished the card with ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed today's post! I hope you try out this watercolor technique too! It's an easy way to color stamped flowers and it's a very quick process too! Since Spring is coming, I invite you to check out the beautiful flower stamps available at the ODBD website... You'll love them!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …

Bible Journaling with Pan Pastel, Deco Foil, TCW and Unity Stamp Co.

I promised I would be back with a new art journaling inspiration project today... This might as well become a habit! This time I have a page from Psalm 31 that I handdrawn and colored with PanPastel. The softness of the PanPastel goes so well with the bible pages and it so easy to blend and color with.
I knew I wanted a bold floral image on this page. I love floral illustrations and I had to try out this Magnolia here. I handdrawn the flower in pencil first inspired by a photograph online. This time I did not feel the need to prep my page because I was not going to be using any wet media on it. Then I started shading my flower starting with a 430.5 Magenta, adding highlights with 380.8 Red Oxide Tint and 100.5 Titanium White (trying not to touch the rest of the image and only blending it on the lightest spots of the flower). I also added 470.8 Violet Tint to create a little bit of shadows but since my coloring is usually whimsical it is ok if the tones shadows and highlights are so r…
