Hi again! Welcome to my second blog post of today. I’m joining Winnie & Walter for a fun blog hop in honor of World Card Making Day 2017. There are lots of festivities going on at the Winnie & Walter blog so make sure to check that out. If you’re hopping from blog to blog, you probably arrived from Rebecca Luminarias’ blog!

In this video, I’m showing you how to create a masked and watercolored winter scene with the Happy Owlidays with Evelin T Designs set from Winnie & Walter ( ELH | SSS | WNN ).

I started out by stamping and masking my tree scene. Whenever you’re masking, keep in mind that you have to stamp the image you want to be in front first. In my case, that was the biggest tree. Then you can use masks to build your scene. Watch the video to see it in action!

I colored the trees and the adorable trio of penguins with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Pentel Aquash Brush. I like to use Canson Watercolor paper ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ) and Archival Jet Black ink ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS ) whenever I use these markers to color. After coloring all of the images, I created a watercolored winter sky with the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS ). I have links to the individual colors I used in the supply list below.

Once my watercolored piece was dry, I ran it through my die cutting machine using the Carly Cutaways from Winnie & Walter ( WNN ) to create a fun Christmas bauble shaped piece. Then I used a mask and Tonic Nuvo Shimmer Paste in Moonstone ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS | TNCUK ) to create pretty and glittery snow. Finally, I added more sparkle with a Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pen ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS ) and Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze ( SSS | AMZUS | TNCUK ).

Hi, all! Happy Friday! Today I’m here with a brand new card and video in honor of the Winnie & Walter June 2017 Release Week featuring lots of cute sets. I’m particularly excited about all of the new critter sets! Those just make my heart happy. Today is Day No. 4 of Release Week so that means all of the products will be available for purchase shortly (06/30 at 10pm CST).

In this video I’m featuring the brand new and simply adorable Happy Dance with Evelin T Designs Set to create a watercolored birthday card.

I spent about an hour on this card since I did a bunch of watercoloring with Distress Inks and with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Like I mentioned in the video, coloring with these ZIG Markers is so easy, fun and very forgiving! I only used one color for each shade and look at that shading! Isn’t that easy? Just lay down some color and blend away with a water brush or a paint brush.

I stamped these images on Canson Watercolor Paper ( ELH | SSS | AMZ ) with Archival Jet Black Ink ( ELH | AMZ | SSS ). This is my favorite black ink for watercoloring techniques since it doesn’t smear or smudge. It’s a little bit trickier to stamp on textured card stock so make sure to use a MISTI tool ( ELH | AMZ | SSS ) for easy stamping or anything else that works for you! 🙂

For the watercolored background, I used Tumbled Glass ( ELH | AMZ | SSS ), Peacock Feathers ( ELH | SSS | AMZ ) and Cracked Pistachio ( ELH | SSS | AMZ ) for some pops of mint here and there. I also added some water splatters with a Ranger Mister Tool. It’s a fun way to add an extra oomph to a watercolored background.

That’s it for now! Make sure to check out the Winnie & Walter blog for a bunch of inspiration featuring all of the new sets. You’ll be amazed! Thanks for stopping by! See you soon. Xo.
