Daily Window news!

Daily Window Products contacted me earlier this month to ask me if I could send over some projects done with their preprinted background cards to be used in an upcoming infomercial about their product line! So excited that these pieces will have a few minutes of fame soon! I've shared a few of the panels here already, but here are a few more that haven't been shown on my blog yet, and some notes on how each was made:

Stamped images: Market Street Stamps
Coloring medium: Inktense pencils/waterbrush
Other supplies: stencil from the Crafter’s Workshop, Versamark ink, octagon dies by Quickutz, button die from Impression Obsession, Fishtail banner die from My Favorite Things, copper foiling tape
Technique: I stamped the teacup image on watercolor paper, masked the image, inked through the stencil with Versamark ink to create the sunburst pattern, and embossed with clear powder. The image is colored with Inktense pencils and a waterbrush.


Stamped images: Carrie - Rubber Romance image by I Brake for Stamps; sentiment by Unity Stamps

Coloring medium: Memento and LePlumeII Markers, Prismacolor pencils

Other supplies: diecuts from Spellbinders (rectangle) and Quickutz (circle, star), Spellbinders embossing folder (star), Fiskars texture plate (textile), twine, ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, red/white trim (unknown source), lace border die from Impression Obsession (tissue paper), hemp twine

Technique: I colored the image loosely with markers, then shaded with colored pencils.


Stamped image: Seaside Scene by Impression Obsession

Coloring medium: Shinhan Premium Watercolors

Other supplies: corrugated cardboard, twine, Scor-Pal

Technique: I watercolored the image using tube watercolors. For the ‘drippy’ areas, I first painted the areas with water, then added color to those areas and tipped the panel to allow the paint to drip where I wanted it to.  In the water, I allowed the first set of drips to dry, then added another  layer over the top. The white reflection lines on the water were added afterwards.

Thanks so much for visiting!!

 Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Your teacup card is stunning!!!! So the burlap background is printed DP or Card stock? Stunning color you created with the pencils!

    I saw the tutorial on the watercolor but never saw it on a card. (If you put it all together on the video I must have had to quit watching before I saw it finished!!! Gorgeous. Is the Background pre printed and did you mix media over the top...if so wondering of the weight of the preprinted.

    I am so glad I am following you now!!! Beautiful inspiration to start my week!!!

  2. Lovely work! I usually cannot think of any idea to use stamps for- then I see something like this and wish I was a better stamper! LOVELY!


  3. Dina you do such beautiful work.. so glad you are a part of my artistic circle of online gal pals.. I have sooo many questions!! I love watching the tutorials you have done as well.. Those people are bound to be super impressed with these panels if they haven't already been with your other projects!! TFS

  4. Dina, make me crazy, every time I open one of your posts notices. You are my inner subconscious artist in my mind and I have yet to put my hands in motion to create that magic. Everything you create has me, like 2 inches from my computer screen checking each of your project out. Love love love..... I am in your corner of design, just the apprentice watch and learning from my teacher. Thanks for sharing.
