Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing an autumn inspired card made with the Little Bear Set from Unity Stamps and Distress Ink. Autumn is my favorite season. What is yours? ūüćāūüćĀ‚̧ԳŹ

Make sure to watch the video below for tips and tricks. Scroll all the way down for a linked supply list.

First, I stamped the bear from the Little Bear Set from Unity Stamps (available for purchase later today or get it as a FREEBIE with your order!) on Canson Watercolor Paper with Archival Jet Black Ink. I colored the bear with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Pentel Aquash Brush. To be honest, the quality of this water brush has been a bit disappointing to me, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to share!

After covering the colored bear with masking paper, I used Distress Ink to create my autumn inspired blend: Ripe Persimmon, Fossilized Amber and Seedless Preserves. For the grass, I used the Grassy Border Stencil from My Favorite Things and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. To create realistic looking trees, I used the Into the Woods Stencil from Winnie & Walter and Black Soot Distress Ink.

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! ūüėÄ

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!

Easy Watercoloring with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers

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? ūüėä

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

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 ).

GIVEAWAY

Make sure to leave comments along the hop because 5 random winners in total will be drawn. Each winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Winnie & Walter shop. Good luck!
