Information Technology – Software Engineering by trade, and designer at heart, Joni is an accomplished artist. Her love of watercolor and precision is evident in her work, as you can see on her blog Papell with Love. Joni is also an Illustrator for Wplus9 and a design team member for Wplus9 Design Studios, Pretty Pink Posh and Winnie & Walter.
We are pleased to introduce you to her soft and intricate work that will inspire you to watercolor. Joni is a master at creating depth with color and loves to add dimension to her work. Her two most-needed tools are her Tonic Paper Cutter and her Teflon bone folder.
Joni’s other great love is her 11 year old daughter, with whom she loves to shop and go bowling.

Thank you, Joni, for your beautiful inspiration!
Joni here, Guest Designing at Ellen Hutson using their new release Thankful stamp set and its Thankful Coordinating die set alongside with the new release from Wplus9 Wishing You stamp set and Wishing You Coordinating die set.
To begin, I brushed each of the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers on the acrylic block. It’s easier for me to blend the colors when it’s laid out on the block; you can also brush the colors on your heat mat or non-stick craft sheet if you prefer.
Then I colored the stamped images from the Thankful stamp set and Wishing You stamp set, and then die-cut each image using their coordinating die sets.
For the background, I first wet the watercolor paper then laid the light blue color from the 12 pack Zig Clean Color Real Brush set and let it dry.
- adhered all the die-cut images using the Multi Medium Matte on the watercolored paper,
- then cut the excess paper on the sides of the panel and adhered it on the white card base with foam tape to add dimension.

Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Thankful stamp set using the Wplus9 PURE Color dye ink in Warm Wool.
Then, I added some watercolor splatter after brushing the Zig Clear Color Real Brush on the acrylic block (adding some water and using a separate watercolor brush to splatter on the top panel).
I also added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoyed, Thank you so much for stopping by.
