It’s DT THURSDAY with KATHY RAC (abella)

Hiya sistahs!

I just had to share this GORGEOUS inspirational card by Kathy Rac.  If you don’t know who Kathy Racoosin  is, you must run to her blog to get inspired ASAP!  Kathy also hosts the DAILYMARKER challenge a few times a year and it is just amazing!

Today Kathy shares her latest creation with us.  She made a beautiful card mixing one of Danielle Donaldson’s supergirls, VERYHAZEL, with one of Danielle’s swatch set stamps, LARGE MARKING TOOLS…. sigh….  and the bows?  I CANNOT! can you?

Hello Friends, It’s Kathy  here today for another monthly installment and like the card says I am “Very Happy” to be here! The spring tends to be such a crazy time of year so I set out to create a simple watercolored card using pencils. Check out the  video to see how easy it was to use pencils with very little water (great for traveling).

I am so in love with this entire collection of stamps called the DANIELLE DONALDSON COLLECTION  . The hard part was choosing which stamps to use .. I settled on “Very Hazel” and the “Marking Tools” to create my card.

My card could have been created using some masking paper but, I felt like it would be faster to fussy cut the images. Stamping her head, legs & neck and wiping off the left arm is an option too… then stamping the body again and popping it on the stamping image is another way. 


Adding some twine to her pigtales is super fun. I popped a sequin on top of the knot because the knot was larger thank I liked. 


If you are taking a vacation prestamp a few images, pack some watercolor pencils and you are set to color anywhere. Thanks for your visit today and see you next time. Hugs,Kathy





We usually see Kathy hanging out here the first Thursday of every month.. so stay tuned!

    Wow, this is amazing! I love the layout, the colour and had a chuckle that you watercoloured with Perrier! Maybe my colouring will turn out better if I use that too 🙂
