Happy Saturday! 🙂 We are suffering from a heat wave here in Belgium and I am slowly melting. Fortunately, I was able to escape from the heat in my craft room to film a new video for you.
In today’s video I am creating a watercolored scene using Distress Inks and the Playful Pups stamp and die cut set from Mama Elephant.
Creating a watercolored scene is easy and fun! I truly believe everyone can do this since there is no right or wrong with this technique. First, I like to add water to an area to get the colors moving around. Then, I add a first layer of color by using more water than ink. After heat setting that, I add a second layer using more ink and less water.
This outdoor scene asked for a furry friend. The Playful Pups stamp set from Mama Elephant is my cup of tea since I am more of a dog person than a cat person (however, I do appreciate cute cat paws and cuddles!). I colored the doggy using Copic Sketch Markers. The more I color with these markers, the more I love them. To finish off the card, I adhered some Spring Flowers sequins by Pretty Pink Posh just because I am all about flowers.
That’s it for now! Enjoy your weekend! xo
