Bird Feeder Shaker Card (new release from Ellen Hutson)

Bird Feeder Shaker Card (new release from Ellen Hutson)

It’s new release time over at Ellen Hutson!! This little birdie set got me especially excited – I wanted to feed them, because filling the feeder made me feel like perhaps spring IS on the way!?!? A late snow this year is causing me to neeeed some spring cheer!

I colored the birds in Zig clean color pens….(for the previous post about birds – click HERE.)

And the shaker is a homemade kind – just cut a rectangle, trimming carefully around the bird beaks with a fingertip knife. Alternately you could add the birds on and diecut them.

The sweet little flowers and butterflies in this sequin set are perfect for a feeder! And the feeder is simple to draw. A flat top and bottom, and a round lid and string. Easy peasy!

Stamp with Watercolor on a card

Stamp with Watercolor on a card

I’ve shown a technique to my Bible journaling peeps – and finally remembered to come do it on my crafty YouTube as well! It’s stamping but not with ink or markers — stamping with watercolor!

I kept the card design simple after all that…I added a “thanks” colored with a Copic in the same colors as the bands painted on that pot on the left. And used some paper layering – 2 stripes sticking out on the right, 1 on the left.

My Bible journaling version….the video is HERE.

New: Rainy Days Classes, Plus an Insta-hop with prizes!

New: Rainy Days Classes, Plus an Insta-hop with prizes!

Finally! I’ve been working on these Rainy Days classes for so long now – I think I have webbed toes by now!

These new classes are on sale for one week. Just so ya know. No coupon needed. Here’s a preview of the three versions of class…see more info below.

I’ve made the techniques in each of classes different from each other – some are repeated, like doing raindrops on a window in each medium, because the technique warranted it. But I kept all three as different as possible so that the students who love all the mediums (like I do!) won’t get bored if they eventually take all three. (Yes, I get bored doing the same thing!) You can certainly try a technique in a different medium after seeing how it’s done in the class!
