World Watercolor Month #9: Birds of a Feather

 

We’re about mid-month in the World Watercolor Month celebration….are you having fun? Hope you’re following along with my daily posts on Instagram and Facebook – and joining in with the prompts yourself too!

Birds of a Feather

Every once in a while…I make an autobiographical card: this is me arriving at my monthly stamp group. LOL! Yes, some of us are already in place on our trapeze. Others arrive in a bit of a state of disarray, feathers a-flying…. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Even with just a limited color palette, watercolor can make for a fun card…if you’ve never tried any watercolor, pick one and try your hand!

World Watercolor Month #7: Guest video with a dramatic lion

Hello friends! World Watercolor Month video #8 is over at MFT – hope you enjoy my lil dramatic lion!

In this video I used a wide brush for the background – this is a Cosmo Spin 30, and it does a nice job of releasing pigment. Other flat brushes can do a similar thing butI also like that I can make a thin line with it sometimes as needed as well. My other brushes are Silver Black Velvet Round brushes, and I most often reach for a #8 and #12.

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 #2: Hobbit Neighborhood Card

 

Hobbit Neighborhood Card

It’s time for a card I had an idea for the very first time I saw this stamp set! First off, I’m a bigtime LOTR fan girl. Hobbit houses made me gleeful! But after making my earlier video showing the whole release and making bookmarks, But it was about TIME that I get to that idea! I wanted both of the little houses next to each other in the Shire, so I can think of them as little neighbors….and thus,  you have today’s card! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

If you’re an AI fan and wanted to take an AI class….hint hint….what kind of stamps would you want to see used? Just asking for a friend, ya know. 

Here are the Tombow colors I used:
