Happy Friday, friends! On Wednesday I shared a watercolored flower card in honor of The Ton’s Spring 2018 Release. At the time when I made this card, I was feeling sick and couldn’t do a video. However, I’m feeling much better so I made another watercolored flower card. This time with a video. ❤ Especially for you!

In this video, I’m showing you how to do easy watercoloring with ZIG Clean Color Real Markers. I only used one marker for each shade and a water brush. If I can do this, YOU can do it, too! 😀

I used the beautiful Peony Garden Cling Background stamp from The Ton. I heat embossed the design with WOW! Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing powder. Think of all the other embossing powders you could use. The possibilities are endless.

Easy Watercoloring with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers

To do this easy and fast watercoloring, I recommend using a good watercolor paper. I always use the Canson XL Watercolor paper. It’s very heavy weight (140lb) and can handle a lot of water. These ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers are perfect for fast watercoloring since you only need to use one color for each shade. For this card I used Yellow, Light Carmine and Light Green.

First I laid down some color to the flowers. I usually apply the color to the top or bottom edges of the design. Then I used a Pentel Aquash Brush to blend out the colors. Any water or paintbrush will work, though! Next, I went back in with the same marker to add a little bit of extra shading here and there. Finally I did some more blending to remove any harsh lines and create a nice and smooth gradient. Easy!

Once the watercolor piece was dry, I die cut a sentiment from the Bold General Greeting Word Plate set from The Ton. I adhered some gold glitter card stock to the back of that paper and put everything together. Quick and easy just like the watercoloring. In total this card took me about 30 minutes to make. Pretty quick, right? 😊

That’s it for now. Make sure to leave a comment if you have any questions. Big hugs. 💌

Happy Wednesday, friends! Today I’m joining The Ton’s Spring 2018 Release Blog Hop. I was originally going to share a video tutorial on this card. However, I’m suffering from a big cold and a super sore throat so I’m unable to do a voice-over. I’m sorry! 🤒 But don’t worry. I’ll share new videos once I feel better.

The Spring 2018 Release is filled with floral designs including dahlias, peonies and roses. In total, there are 14 new stamps, coordinating dies and 5 standalone dies. Good news!

The Ton's Spring 2018 Release Blog Hop Featuring Coming Up Dahlias

I’m showcasing the Coming Up Dahlias set. I adore the delicate design. I stamped the flower design twice on Canson Watercolor Paper. Then I colored the flowers and leaves with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I used only three colors: Peach Pink, Orange and Light Green. I like the fact that you need only one color and a water brush for some brilliant shading. Well. I’m not saying my coloring is brilliant. 🤪 I still need a lot of practice. My friend Effie on the other hand, does the most beautiful watercoloring ever.

Once the watercolor piece was completely dry, I die cut a sentiment from the Bold General Greeting Word Plate set from The Ton. Next I adhered a piece of gold glitter card stock on the back of the floral piece. Easy! To finish off this card, I sprinkled some sequins here and there. I used Medallion Gold, Guava Shortcake, Precious Pink and Glass Slippers sequins from The Ton.

Happy Wednesday, friends! I’m enjoying my second week of my internship at Kindergarten and I’m having so much fun. I also love the fact that I’m finally able to have some crafty time in the weekends. This weekend I played some more with the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse from Tonic. In this video, I’ll be showing you how to create an emboss resist background with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. Super fun! 💛

First I embossed an adorable heart background using the Seeing Hearts stamp set from Winnie & Walter. I used my favorite white embossing powder from Wow. After applying masking paper to my card, it was time to create the background. I simply took a small amount of paste from the jar and started working it around until it softened enough. I also added a tiny bit of water to make the ink blending smoother. Make sure to use a small amount of water since we’re not using watercolor card stock here! The colors I used are called Spring Green and Aquamarine. They’re gorgeous!

Create Emboss Resist Backgrounds with Tonic Nuvo Embellishment Paste

I let this background dry for about 15 minutes. There was a little bit of paste left on the embossed hearts so I took a baby wipe and wiped that away. Easy! I colored the bunny and cat from the Welcome to the Family set from Winnie & Walter with Copic Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut the images out.

To finish off this card, I die cut a speech bubble from the Sketchy Thoughts die cut set from Winnie & Walter. I embossed a sentiment and then put everything together with foam squares. I also stamped a sentiment from the Sending You set from Winnie & Walter and adhered a tiny die cut heart next to it. Finally, I used my Nuvo Shimmer Pen and Crystal Glaze to add extra dimension and shine to the heart. ⭐

I’m loving this product and I can’t get enough of it. Have you tried out this product? I’ll be back soon. Thanks for stopping by. Big hugs. 💌
