R2C Day11: Magical Monday – Freezing My Jingle Bells Off!

R2C Day11: Magical Monday – Freezing My Jingle Bells Off!

Magical Monday – Freezing My Jingle Bells Off!

It’s been a while since I shared a Magical Monday video….since we’re getting close to Christmas I thought it might be fun to just have something cheerful to watch and sing along with! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Today’s charity

….is a lot of LOCAL charities. Since the video today is all about being brrrrrrrr cold, I’m giving to help women and their kids stay warm and dry! I donated to a homeless shelter here in my town called Fusion – a friend of mine’s Mom started it, after she’d had an experience of domestic abuse – talk about finding a way to give back! I suggest you look for a small local shelter or service group near you. If you don’t have money to give, go donate some time making food, cleaning, whatever they need! And please don’t let this be just at Christmastime….they need help year round!

Backlighting: Halloween Costume Party

Backlighting: Halloween Costume Party

When I saw the Costume Party stamp set – I knew exactly what I was going to do. And it was that sentiment sign! ha. I know, I know, I’m weird! But in today’s video you get a lot more – mostly about coloring a backlit image. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Even if you just colored all the flat-color, single layer parts, including the sky – this would be amazing.  Hope you try it out!

This card, as many, brings me to constantly ask myself, HOW MANY MARKERS do I use on one piece!? Lol!

I was inspired to look at some vintage postcards to figure out a layout for this card…I stamped the deer, added the circle in pencil, then stamped the greens (masking where needed), then drawing in the banner and circle with a black sharpie (waterproof pen). I had some challenges with the purple background, but it was sure a fun experiment – and this is one of my fave cards lately! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Big thanks to MFT for providing this month’s release – I {bigpuffyheartlove} these polar bears!

Color an Ice Fishing Pond – MFT Polar Bear Pals

Birdie Brown is such a talented stamp designer – and she didn’t disappoint with these bears! I had wanted to make a video with her previous bears and didn’t get to…they had sold out too fast and I didn’t find them til spring! (I hope Polar Bear Pals are more available if you need ’em!) Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

How’s that for a fun holiday scene? Lots of critters could be sitting around an ice pond…penguins, walruses, or eskimossandy-allnock-ice-fishing-bears

I love using ALL the stamps when I color – so I used the skating bear on the inside…and as seen above, the little polar bear made his way onto the envelope!sandy-allnock-ice-fishing-pond-inside

Hope you enjoyed the video today! Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram if you end up trying out one of my techniques, I’d love to see what you create!

While watercolors can be soft and lovely, they also can have a lot of punch! Layering washes over each other to build up rich color can be well worth the patience of waiting in between. Check out how I created the fun background as well as the painted stamped images! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
