Sandy Allnock - Artist Encouragement Cards Tutorial video

Artist Encouragement Cards

Sometimes….just simple splashy watercolor is just the right thing to do. Easy peasy, flick it on and let the watercolor sing! In the video I talk a little about colors to avoid together, and a few general tips. Enjoy the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The stamps used here are so pretty and versatile – these could be sent any time of year, any occasion! Just pick a fellow artist/crafter and send out a little encouragement by mail!
