Creating Cards with Water Color Pencils and Die Cuts

Hello Friends! Recently I participated in a blog hop with Rita Barakat and Faber-Castell. One of the project kits Faber-Castell sent was to create cards with water color pencils. I have had this set of die cuts for awhile. I think I have been hoarding them just waiting for the right time to use them. The time has come!

The Cards

I wish I could tell you how to make these cards, but the technique box did a wonderful job of teaching! Basically each card was created with a stencil and water color pencils. I first traced the stencil, colored it in and ran a wet paint brush over the image. I added a few embellishments from a Queen and Co trunk I recently unboxed here:

Here are the close ups of each card:

In Conclusion

Normally I am not an advocate for hoarding craft supplies, but in this case it paid off! I could not think of a better way to use these sweet Rita Barakat die cuts. The moral of the post is: If it is pretty just buy it 😉

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

Unashamed

The first page I created with the Color by Faith line was this one:

I shared this a couple of months ago for another hop.

My Cup Runneth Over

The next page is my favorite so far! The stacked teacups makes me smile 🙂

This also is the first Bible art page I did on YouTube LIVE!

The last one I am sharing with you is based off of the lyrics of my favorite song –Reckless Love. The little sheep is just darling! Here is how this one came together:
