TE January Sneak Peeks: Be-you-tiful

Hello everyone! 

How is your Monday? Hopefully it is a good one! I'm delighted to start the day by sharing some crafty pretties with you. It is day one of sneak peeks for the January release from Taylored Expressions and I have some delightful illustrations to share with you this month. The first is delightful set of watercolor panels for coloring: Watercolor Panels Inspire

I pulled out my Sakura Koi Watercolors and colored four of the panels (there are 4 designs and you get 3 of each design for a total of 12 panels). I may need a bit of practice with the watercolor brushes... or a smaller brush. :D

I picked my favorite panel once it was dry and made a card with it. I kept the layout simple so that the panel was not overshadowed by the other elements. I used the Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate to cut out a scallop border from Cookie Monster cardstock and used the largest one. I also backed the panel with some Doodlebug Color Vibe II designer paper. For embellishments I added a bit of May Arts Natural Jute, Tonic Studios Honey Gold Glitter Nuvo Drops, and a few yellow enamel dots.

Do you like it? I'm happy with how it turned out. And here is a picture of all of the colored panels all together. Now I just need to make a few more cards.

That’s it for me today! I hope you’ll head over to the Taylored Expressions Blog to check out what everyone else has created for today’s sneak peeks!

  1. Your cards are captivating! I love the colors :)

  2. Love the spring feel to these pre stamped cards. Like the idea of just coloring. I think Blue is the color for Taylor and the family.


Thanks for your sweet comments! I love hearing from you. :)
