Something new...watercolor markers

Hello Friends, How are you?  I have been experimenting with these watercolor markers for days. I have a tutorial for Penny Black this Friday and I decided NOT to use this card because it didn't turn out. I hope you have been checking out all of the great techniques on the Penny Black blog this week?

It's almost impossible to show the shading with my photography ... maybe I need a new camera :)

I stamped the wrong color for the text in the background. Inked it up without looking...big bummer but, if that's all that I have going on I will be very thankful.

This is a quick post I had to take a break. Have a great evening or day. Hugs, Kathy

wine tag and gift card holder

Hello Friends, Me again :) Today at the SRM blog they are featuring gift holders. I took advantage of this opportunity and designed two. A wine gift tag and a gift card holder. I LOVED working with this felt.

Be Jolly
I pulled some of my nesties (snowflake, inverted circles) and Tim Holtz flowers to create this gift card holder. My SRM stickers stuck beautifully to the felt. Glossy Accents was the perfect "glue". I sewed the buttons to the felt then stuck them on with the GA.

Be Jolly

Inside I put the gift card and a small chocolate bar. This just feels warm and cozy. I hope to create many more.

Cozy & Warm

We have several bottles of wine to give away as gifts and I wanted to add something homemade that I didn't have to cook. This really was so much fun to make and so easy. I started with the largest rectangle ( see supply list) for the wine tag. I used the inverted circle, snowflake and circle to layer. Overall size is 61/4 x 31/4. For the center circle make sure that it fits the bottle before you cut it. 
Cozy & Warm

I hope you are enjoying this festive season. Have a great week! Hugs,Kathy

SUPPLIES: felt is from Papertry Ink

Can you tell that this is a monochromatic card? I wasn't sure if the sky and grass would qualify but, had to have that color so I went with it.

Stay Tuned

I had so much fun creating this card especially since my daughter is almost 16 the image was perfect for her. I used stormy sky for the background but, I picked up some other colors off of my mat so it came out a little blue green. The grass is shabby shutters.

Stay Tuned

Here is Caardvarks blog so you can check out all of the beautiful cards from the DT. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Hugs, Kathy

SUPPLIES: 
The Copic colors I  used were Boo, Boo2, Bo4 and for the jeans B45. Skin E50 and cheeks RV10.
