Hi! When I saw the Straight-Up Rainbow dies from My Favorite Things, I immediately knew I wanted to create a watercolored shaker card. So, I did! 😄

Make sure to watch the video tutorial below for tips and tricks.

First, I used Mini Distress Ink Pads on Ranger Distress Watercolor Paper to create quick and easy watercolored backgrounds. For most colors, I used two shades. I listed all of the ink pads I used in the supply list below. 🌈

Then, I used the Straight-Up Rainbow dies from My Favorite Things to die cut the rainbow stripes. I die cut the cloud twice: once using white felt and then one more time using white card stock for extra sturdiness.

After assembling the rainbow stripes, it was time to create my shaker. I used acetate and Scotch Foam Tape. As always I removed some of the stickiness using kitchen flour. I filled up the shaker with sequins, beads and stars from The Ton.

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by! Sending hugs. Xoxo 💗

Happy Wednesday, friends! While I was brainstorming and looking through my stash, I noticed my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers haven’t been getting enough attention lately. 😄 So, I decided to combine them with the Moments of Bliss Stamp Set from Unity Stamp Company.

Make sure to watch the video below to see how I did this sparkly watercoloring.

First, I stamped one of the butterflies from the Moments of Bliss Stamp Set from Unity with Archival Jet Black Ink on Canson Watercolor Paper. I stamped over the black butterfly with Versamark, sprinkled on Clear Embossing Powder from WOW and heat set it.

Next, I watercolored the butterfly with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Pentel Aquash Pen. In the video, I explain how to do this. To add the sparkle and to create beautiful blended colors, I used a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in Clear Gloss.

To finish off this card, I adhered some Glass Slippers Sequins from The Ton and applied Tonic Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard.

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.

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. 💌
