Cosmo Cricket Week - Day 5



We are closing out our Cosmo Cricket collaboration week today, hopefully you have been following along and enjoying the projects all week!

Every good collaboration need a couple prizes, right?  We've got a great bundle of Cosmo Cricket goodies to share with one of you.  Just leave a comment on each post this week and we'll pick a winner and announce them next week.

Cosmo Cricket also has a prize to share, so be sure to stop by and check them out on Facebook and Instagram.

Today Amy and Keeway are sharing with us:

Hi, it's Amy!  I couldn't wait to dive into the goodies from Cosmo Cricket!  Here is a peek at some of my supplies:


I've been really enjoying the watercoloring trend and was looking forward to combining the Cosmo Cricket Just Add Watercolor Blank Tags along with the Pixie Paint in Candy!  Here's how I was inspired:


I love how vivid the Pixie Paint is....such a great background to the images from Big Top Birthday, don't you agree?  I teamed it up with the awesome Hooray Nice & Neat die.  I trimmed it down to just the sentiment.

I colored all the stamped images with my copics...couldn't resist the green + pink color combo!

And here's Keeway:

For my card, I created a little scene with the Little Stinker smelling the envelope and thinking of someone special. Have you ever reminisce about someone after reading an old letter or card? That's exactly how I felt when I thought of this card.



I played with the Cosmo Cricket Pixie Paint in the pink "Candy" and blue "Pool". The paint itself comes in powder form with multiple hues. When water is added, you create this beautiful, vibrant "cloudlike" wash of color with a hint of hue variation.

I used the Pixie Paint to create a bright background of pink on the left side and blue on the right side. I blended the two sides towards each other with water so that there is no harsh line where they meet. Because the blue is more cerulean, the mixture of the pink and the blue can come out greyish purple, so I kept the blending of the two rather minimal, just enough to have the wash look fluid.


The colorful background contrasted my black and white skunk perfectly! My "thinking of you" bubble had some minor copic coloring with a matching blue color to balance the blue on the right side, just like how the pink accents on my skunk balanced out the pink on the left side.

I absolutely love the texture of the background that these Pixie Paints create. It makes creating washes incredibly easy!

Thanks so much for joining us all week.  Leave a comment on this post for another chance to win that Cosmo Cricket prize pack, and we'd like to send out a HUGE thanks to Julie at Cosmo Cricket for all these fantastic supplies.  The team thoroughly enjoyed working with Cosmo Cricket's products!!!
