Flower Pot Rosie...

I made this card with the cute digi "Flower Pot Rosie", a gift that my friend Wendy
, Creations by Louby Loo, gave me some months ago.

I always love to use these earth tones! I combined different colors of card stock for the background plus a beautiful paper (sorry, I cannot remember the brand!). In the center I put a strip of dry embossed Bazzill card stock, to which I applied the sand technique to bring out the relief. I have painted Rosie with watercolors and my La Plume markers. I printed the digi several times, to give it a 3D image. The little flower of the flower pot and the bow on Rosie’s head both have crystal effect. The flowers are painted in shades of yellow; I added glitter to highlight them and I put a brown crystal on the center of each one, to combine with the background. I placed a butterfly (I love butterflies!) in a corner and I put some small shiny crystals on it wings. I finished decoration with a beautiful ribbon of different earth tones.

I think this is a card for every occasion, so I did not add any special sentiment.

I really enjoy drawing these strawberries, which are part of my collection of fruits and flowers. I could almost smell its pleasant aroma. I love them!

I painted them with watercolors and my La Plume markers. I emphasized the small points of strawberries with black and gold, but unfortunately they are not noticeable in the picture. To design this card I have used card stock burgundy color and I have added silver card stock on the bottom, which I think combine very well. The strawberry-colored ribbon adds a lovely touch.

Miss Cow...

May I introduce you the cute Miss Cow. I think that in my collection of animals and pets drawings, is the first time that I have the visit of a cow. This card has layers of plain color card stock and also the beautiful card stock of the collection "The Glitter Stack" from DCWV (I love the combination of pink and brown and glitter that has this card stock!). I also added ribbons, flowers and some clear dots.

I consider this is a card for every occasion. Many times I prefer to leave the sentiment free, but this time I imagined Miss Cow saying "Just wanted to say Hi!"

I have added new flowers to my collection. Today I show you my card with this beautiful flower,
Columbine... I have seen this flower in different colors, but the one I liked most is this combination of yellow and aubergine.
On the inside I added a little tag that says: "Hugs and kisses", which can be changed by any other sentiment or a gift card. I think this could be a card for any occasion.

I have been working on the design of different flowers and also fruits, which I will show you soon!

Thanks for your visit!

I finally made this card! It was very fun to remember my drawings of flowers, which I started doing long ago, since I was at school. I love Hydrangeas! They are delicate and vigorous. They can be simple and also sophisticated. You can put only one and it looks great in a vase. And their colors are always beautiful!

Although I have many favorite, Dee the Bee is one of my special drawings. She was also one of my first drawings in my cards sold last year. On the first card, this little bee was wearing sunglasses. Now I figured that she should have a boyfriend, to complete the scene. I think they look very nice!

I would love to hear your comments or suggestions :)

Summer Holidays, nothing better....

This lazy cat was one of the first drawings that I put in my cards on sale last year. It is not the same drawing, only the same cat that is always resting. Typical cat attitude!

The sunglasses, glass and the palm tree have crystal effect. I made the flower using singles petals, trying it to look like the hibiscus that are in the design of the paper.

I would love to hear your comments and suggestions:)

My Chrysanthemum

I wanted to show you my version of some flowers. I have drawn this Japanese Chrysanthemum (Dendranthema ~ Disbud), which comes in different tones of pink and also in yellow/dark orange and the most common, white. I have added crystal effect to the whole image. This is a beautiful flower, whose beauty I hope to have in my drawing.

I would love to hear your comments!

I've been working on themes related to leisure, holidays and flowers...

I hand drew this cute dolphin having in mind that summer is time to relax and enjoy, so that is why this card is called "Enjoy".

I think this is a card for any occasion. It has some glitter and crystal effect. I used Bazzill cardstock and also the beautiful glittered cardstock ("The Glitter Stack") from DCWV.
I would love to hear your comments!
