12 Kits of Occasions - Watercolour Wonder!

Yes.  It is the end of the month!  BUT, my blogger is giving me fits with this leap year business!!!  Oh you know it's all me ... but a girl has to try, right?  Seems my scheduling was a bit off!

Nancy Penir, of Artful Notions, is our hostess for 12 Kits of Occasions ... welcome to the group, Nancy!  You've done a fabulous job on your very first kit.  These are just a few of the goodies contained in our February kit:



Though my newest grandchild, and her parent's move has taken priority these last two weeks, I was able to make several cards, and had heaps of fun - and still have lots to play with in the future!

Here is my [very late] design team card:

I Copic colored, and even used the pretty netting that Nancy tied our kit up with!
Can't see it?  Here's a little close up:
 
 
Next up, a first-time try with water-color pencils:
 
Just a little shading, and some enamel dots to create a bit of dimension!
 
This little shaker card will come in handy over
the next few weeks!
 
How could I ever resist these butterflies?
 
 
My very first seed beads!
 
I hope you've had a chance to look at every lovely card made by the 12 Kits card club ... I have not, so I'm off to have a nice long visit!
 
Thanks for dropping by!  Thank you again, Nancy!! xx

Michele, your cards are no less than masterpieces, every one! I was blown away with the use of the tulle, and those yummy donuts. Love the simplicity of the watercolor pencil blooms, the gem shaker, and framed butterfly. And so happy you got to use seed beads for the first time. Gorgeous embellied butterflies!

Your cards are always a joy to look at - no "amateurs" here! And yes, those beautiful butterflies show your rockin' talent!

Fabulous cards. Your creativity always makes me smile, and that's one of the many reasons I keep coming back. Hugs.

It's always a joy to see what confections you create with the kit, Michele ... these are all fabulous! Fun doughnuts (with that touchable mesh background), elegant pencil coloured blooms, gorgeous gold shaker, dramatic framing and truly stunning butterflies! A triumph! Hugs, Anita :)

Hi Michele! Great cards as always! So clever to use the netting from the package - I was trying to think of some way to include that! Love that close up! Your shaker is so fun too! Lots of white today! I have such a hard time embracing the white space - you make it look easy!

Marcia HIll said...

WOW...I am SO impressed by your use of white Michele! Every one of your cards is CAS perfection!! Very honored to have played along side of you and all the other gals today...how fun to see how we each interpreted all the wonderful supplies. :0)

Brenda said...

Wow Michele, your cards are so fabulous! I love the coffee and donut one, beautiful coloring on them, not sure how you got the netting to stay in place though. I love it! I also love the coloring on those flowers, so gorgeous is this card. Who can resist a shaker card, and then it is in gold to boot! The butterflies are exquisite as are the cards! Hugs, Brenda

ALL so fabulous! You've reminded me that I haven't stamped a butterfly in a while, that may need to change real soon lol.

Lisa said...

What a creative idea to use the tulle on your donut card! Perfectly executed too. That card is making me crave a donut!! These are all fantastic Michele, they're clean simple but they all pack a punch!!

Sharron said...

Well, aren't you clever! I never would have thought to use the tulle. Love the texture and your fun donuts! How did you fasten the tulle down? All your cards are so wonderfully CAS. You create so beautifully with white and just a bit of color!

Kristie Goulet said...

These are all gorgeous, Michele! Love how you have used the kit! Seed beads are so much fun, aren't they? I use them lots in shaker cards!

Birgit said...

These are all fabulous! I'm completely smitten by the card with the lightly grey-ish flowers. So simple and beautiful! Congrats on your little grand!!

Kay Miller said...

These are all so beautiful Michele!! I love to see what you all do with the different things! I'm especially smitten with the one with the big white flowers!!

Bobby said...

You have outdone yourself again, Michele. With all you have had going on I'm surprised you got 5 cards made. It must be a testament to your CAS style and genius mind. Everyone one of your cards are truly wonderful.

Joyce said...

I love every single one of these cards, Michele. what do you mean that you didn't have much time to play? All of your cards are stunning, but I think my very favorite is the 2nd one--you showed such incredible restraint in your use of color and details, and the result is simply gorgeous.

Tracey McNeely said...

...and play you did Michele what a fabulous collection of gorgeous cards! That very first card is just the sweetest and I still have my donuts and coffee to CASE with ;) That shaker is divide and love the tilted blue panel for your artwork and to finish off with a white or white--yup another CASE!

Barb Ghig said...

Oh, what a beautiful collection of cards, Michele! I love how you used the netting to add texture to the first one, and how you kept all of your designs crisp, clean and simple! Honestly, I can't even pick a fave...they are all so pretty!

Petra Swart said...

Love them all! The seed beads at the top of the antennae are a favorite! Love how the sequins so beautiful trickle down behind the butterflies!
