Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

New Water Colors ..

Hi Everybody,

Once again it has been playtime in my craft room and I absolutely love this little card and for this I have used yet more new water colors.
These are the boxed  Japanese Gansai Tambi Water Color Paints 
These paints are rich and creamy and full of pigment to make the colours vibrant and easy to work 
I do not profess to be an artist and I can't draw for toffee ...  but do you know I had so much pleasure from coloring this image that I don't care if it's right or wrong.

I am sure that there are many many mistakes on it but I love it and I think that some child would be thrilled to get this as a Birthday card.

All I am trying to do is encourage you to give things a try.

I bet some of you have water colours and they sit in the drawer never seeing the light of day

Why not pop over to the website and see how I coloured in this card  using the 
then get out your paints and color along with me 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  2. Lovely cards Christina and love how you've the two stamps've soloured them beautifully.


  3. The images are so adorable and I especially like the vivid colors in the first card. I haven't seen b watercolors that are that saturated but I really like them. I think I'll pull out my watercolors and give it a go.

  7. Morning Christina,
    A very cute card, anybody would love it.

  8. I have just bought some of these water colours. Your card is an inspiration to break open the box and have a go!

  9. Good Morning Christina :) Why am I up at 4:30 a.m...... had to shovel a spot for my two fur babies. Snow is still coming down... Good day to craft, eh? Christina, this is just TOO CUTE!! It just doesn't get any better that! First of all, there are no mistakes in art. It's YOUR interpretation. It's unique to you. If you like it, that's all that matters. But chances are, if you like it, others will too. Thank you for your encouragement. I've been using some Faber-Castel Gelatos, but I also have a less expensive water color set and I've been playing around with them, as well. It's just fun. And I've been pretty happy with my results, as well. It's not the Mona Lisa, but it's great for cards. Enjoy a lovely day Dear Lady. Big Hugs.

  10. So sweet cards, Christina!
    Thanks for a wonderful coloring tutorial!

  11. Hi Christina

  12. Hi Christina, what a brilliant tutorial that was I loved it. I am not into stamping or painting as I am quite clumsy but you made it look so easy. Thank you so much.

  13. Hi Christina,
    Aw, some more really cute bunnies. I love them!! I think you are marvellous with a paintbrush Christina and an inspiration. Yes, you're right...I most certainly do have some watercolours (cheap ones) on a shelf gathering dust. I still want to get this set though as I've heard nothing but great reports about them...they are making their way to the top of my Amazon wish list as I type lol.

    well done Christina

  15. Love your cards! Absolutely nothing wrong with your watercoloring. I really enjoy all your cards, and love that you encourage all of us to try something new. Have a great day!

  16. I think these are two amazing cards, and I think you have done a wonderful job colouring them...the colours are so vibrant and beautiful...I too think they would make great childrens cards...thanks for the inspiration Christina....luv Ursula xx

  17. I love your bunnies and yes I use my watercolors. Love the card.

  18. What a cute couple of bunnies you have chosen to colour. Your water colouring is amazing. I will pop over and check out your tutorial tonight. Thanks for sharing.

  19. Just watched your video- it LOOKS easy! BUT! I think I would need a lot of practice to get such a great result. However I may just give it a go eventually - you are very encouraging. xxx

  20. Aww, such a cute little pair. I love the way you colored them.

  21. A gorgeous card with a beautifully coloured image!

  22. Beautiful cards Christina, love the sweet images and the colours are wonderful. I got these watercolour paints for xmas and I just love them, but I'm not as good as you at the colouring, need more practise, Kate x

  23. Lovely colouring Christina. Perhaps I will have to hint for my birthday. You never know I might be lucky.

  24. Christina, I thought you were a professional artist. All your work speaks as if it is. I love to color and your encouragement in watercolors and alcohol markers have meant alot to me. I bought grandchildren art books for Christmas and art paper and pencils. They are always doodling. For the first time ever I learned to copy an image- drawing the object smaller or bigger. So fun!! Thank you!! I even use crayola markers when that is all I have!! ~blessings, Louise

  25. Hi Christina, Love these great cards and the wonderfully coloured bunnies. Thanks for the very informative video, I'm off to have more practice. Janelle x

  26. They are absolutely adorable, terrific coloring!!
