World Watercolor Month #5: Gillfriend Thank You Card

 

Gillfriend Thank You Card

These just might be my favorite little fishie stamps of the season – well, til I see another one, haha! I love their clean simple shapes, and it’s easy to make them look rounded with all their open space. Just love em! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I painted water as just drops, which gives a color to the otherwise clear drops of Glossy Accents.

World Watercolor Month #4: Interactive Rainbow Slider Card

 

World Watercolor Month

This post is…well, let’s say it’s a tiny stretch, okay? Here’s the rationale: water + sunlight = rainbow when it’s seen from the correct angle. So I’m picturing rain in here somewhere! LOL! I considered redoing the video to create it in watercolor but, ya know…..it was just so bright and happy, I just went with it!

Interactive Rainbow Slider Card

New releases from Ellen Hutson this month are all about rainbows and magic! In the video I show you a couple of the other items (I’ll be using the Mermaid later this month), but I really wanted to make the interactive rainbow card. Sooooo stinking cute!

World Watercolor Month #1: Complementary Color Wheel Card

 

World Watercolor Month

It’s that time again….JULY! The world is celebrating watercolor, so you know I am too! On my posts on this blog and YT, they’ll be watercolor OR watercolor-adjacent; meaning some will be in watercolor, others might be coloring water in other mediums. So my copic and pencil peeps need not sign off for a month!

On social, keep an eye out for the monthly challenge – which WILL be watercolor. I’m excited!

Complementary Color Wheel Card

When I saw this stamp set, it was made for someone like me, right? I had to buy it! And rather than stamping color names into the tubes, I instead made a spinner card out of it with a unique mechanism to get the right parts spinning. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Even the inside has a splash of watercolor – a panel to cover the back of the brad!

And if you’d like to color a wheel to use as a template, here’s a blank to use – resize it in Word or something based on the size you need, or just diecut after coloring it in.
