I’ve always admired the soft, pretty coloring that my friend Debby does – if you don’t follow her, you ought to! I was just talking with her a few days ago and she told me she’s planning on doing more videos (weekly maybe, woohoo!) for her channel, and I’m ecstatic! Lots of her videos end up in Online Card Classes, but now we get to see them in addition to classes. Hooray!

Soft Watercolor

I recently purchased some Prima Watercolor pencils – these come in sets of 12: Basics, Earthtones, Soft Neutrals, Scenic Route, and Spring & Fall. I wasn’t expecting to like them so much – but I do! The colors seem to really turn into flowing watercolor fast – even better than the Inktense pencils that I’ve used before. So far I haven’t found any that don’t blend easily! Watch the video below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

The scalloped stitched cloud border is one I was happy to find when looking through my Pretty Pink Posh dies – I might finally retire my scalloped border punch that I’ve used for cards like this and this! I seem to regularly get emails from folks asking where that punch is – and I’m guessing it’s long discontinued at this point.

Sandy Allnock Soft Watercolor with Pencils

The “You are not here” wood mounted sentiment is one by Stampers Anonymous; it seems to not be available any more. So sad! It’s perfect for using in this exact way – all the little critters in a row with a gap for the missing beloved friend!

I also want to let you know I’m starting something a little new – vlogging on a new channel! I’ve been wanting to do more short-form chats as well as perhaps some livestreams, and interactive things….and this is my first little video in that vein! Feel free to go subscribe if you like chatty videos like this; I know lots of folks don’t have time for this, and that’s totally fine 🙂 I may or may not be blogging about posting videos there, so you’ll want to subscribe. 🙂 Watch the video below, or click HERE to watch it on YT where you can find that little “subscribe” button!
