Sometimes I make a card and think…..ain’t no one out there who will ever try this. My fine art pieces I don’t expect anyone to attempt, but…when it’s a card I usually try to keep it doable! But this one…well you’ll have to let me know!
Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
If I were to paint this as a standalone without the stamp I’d approach it differently – I’ll try to do that sometime.
But I’m hoping that something in this little nutty project helped you learn something about loosening up – even if it’s “I will NEVER do what she just did!” heehee!

This is gorgeous. I love hearing about the process and how and why you take the steps you take. Thank you for the video.
This is just so gorgeous
So gorgeous Sandy, you are inspiring! I will give the technique a try, probably turn out like a hot mess, but it is only paper.
Love your work, thank you for sharing.
Oh, I plan to give it a try as soon as my newly replaced knee lets me concentrate for longer than 30 minutes. I did start the first lesson in Exploring watercolors in my new Etchr sketchbook. Looking forward to learning a lot.
That’s gorgeous and I’d love to try it because – yes – I have to keep working on that loosening up. Not to mention that spattering!
Awesome as always, the hummingbird is stunning. Thank you so much for showing.
This is such a beautiful painting. I thought you had free-handed it so mission accomplished.
I just ordered the stamp set from Ellen! Can’t wait to try it! I love your work and everything watercolor!
GORGEOUS! your painting amazes me!
Sooooooo Beautiful Sandy!!!! Love the look – I have a difficult time being loose with my watercolor….great lesson is how you did this. TFS!
Great exercise in loosening up! And I disagree with you – I think lots of folks will try this, because you’ve always taught us that “It’s just paper!” Love the hummers, and will definitely get the stamp set, and I will keep trying!
