Watercolor Flowers Series #22: Sketchy Flowers Twin Tip Markers

This beautiful Sketchy Florals stamp set from Altenew is a lot of stamps in one set- lots of florals! You can turn it any number of ways to use a few flowers or a lot of flowers….and I used a lot! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

A Copic version, trying to create a similar stone-looking background in reds…

MFT Guest Post: Love you to the core

Hello coloring friends!! I’ve been doing guest posts over at MFT and this month is no different of course! The second I saw this little Pure Innocence girl snacking on an apple from her little basket, I had to color her right up – and add a fall scene behind her! I’ve been obsessed with fall scenes lately – and you can check my Instagram feed for lots more scene ideas for your fall, halloween, and Thanksgiving cards. (And I’m moving into Christmas now, too, so ya best run and catch up! lol!) But first – enjoy the watercolor pencil video:

Lots of fun – and easy, too. That’s the great thing about trees…they’re just blobs of color!

Glossy Accents is one of my favorite embellishments on an image – adding just a little shine to her apples and shoes!

Watercolor Flowers Series #21: Wet on wet stamping

Recently I was reminded of my watercolor flowers series – and after going back and numbering the ones that didn’t make it in…we’re back on track – with #21!

Watercolor Flowers Series #21: Wet on wet stamping

These watercolor flowers are easy, but look so loose and artsy – stamping with watercolor markers onto wet paper gives the flowers a washy look that can be challenging to create with just a brush! I used Zig clean color markers but you could try other brands and papers too. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

And the soft purple flowers too…yum!

A shell in your pocket: Nicole Tamarin Seashells

 

A shell in your pocket

Sometimes a really beautiful stamp set just leaps into your cart, right? (Ok more than sometimes!) But this one – the sentiments blew me away as much as the pretty shells! I debated what to color these with – landed on Inktense Pencils –  and I know I’ll be playing with them and my Copics too. Because, beautiful, right?

Cats Pajamas: This Could be…a Sauna!

Cats Pajamas: This Could be…a Sauna!

Recently, my friend Alma at the Cats Pajamas sent me some stamps – and when I saw these cuties (set is called “This could be vodka!”) in cups, I just had to get them inked up! I colored them with my Inktense pencils – and had fun deliberately letting the pencil and water look jaggedy in particular spots for effect. I love that you have so many options for edges with watercolor! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on  YouTube.

The sentiments in this set are pretty hilarious – you gotta see em to believe em. (Check out other sets while you’re there – they’ve got quite the sense of humor at TCP!)

Interactive: Woven Tab Card – Clawsome by Lawn Fawn

I *just* got my order of new Lawn Fawn yesterday – and I bumped today’s previously scheduled video so I could make a quick video with Clawsome – because it was just so much FUN!

Interactive: Woven Tab Card – Clawsome by Lawn Fawn

I used Bristol with Clean Color pens to create this card – and in the video I show you how I made three machines, each with different toys! The interactive mechanism is a simple paper-weave to make the little bear toy slide in and out of the claw machine! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Here are the open and closed views – so much fun! If you recreate a card like this and change out the “toys”, I’d love to be tagged on Instagram so I can see what YOU came up with!

I added one more slice to the inside top of the opening so a little bear can peek out, adhered by the adhesive tabs so he has some dimension too.

Color a jar of chocolates – in watercolor pencils

BIG NEWS: The BCRF Fundraiser last week was hugely successful! I promised to donate $1 per comment and $1 per pin…the total is $359 so I rounded up to $500. Because $400 just doesn’t sound as round, ya know?

Color a jar of chocolates – in watercolor pencils

This one goes out to all my fellow chocoholics! I’m one of those non-discriminatory chocolate lovers…I love it all! Milk, dark, specialty….yum! And this video will show you how to color your own jar – it’s a little lighter on the waistline than the real stuff. LOL! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

And the sentiments in this set? Worth the purchase alone. LOL. I don’t wanna be weak, ya know.
